Yesterday, a very good friend lend me her old camera, a Pentax ME Super 35mm beauty, with a 50 mm 1.7 lens.
I have been trying to get into film photography again, and was looking around on ebay for good deals, and my friend happened to have this camera hidden away somewhere, and was happy to lend it to me. I will most definitely be kicking off some projects with this camera!.
I used to have a 35mm old Canon camera my dad bought when I was a child, he would take it everywhere we went on vacation, and I remember how much he loved taking photographs of flowers, everywhere.
To this day those memories remain and I was hoping to get back into film at some point, and no better time like the present, here we are!.
Everything about a camera like this speaks volumes, the manual focus, the centre-weighed focus point, the dials with manual iso and the aperture manipulation through the lens, is just a great classic feeling having this camera in my hands.
I am traveling to Colombia in March, and will most definetely be taking this camera with me, cannot wait to get some portraits with it!.
