Week 6: New Bridge (3 rolls)

Week 6 was really a people week for me because I had a simple, no excuses opportunity.  A new bridge opened over the Mississippi River and the public was invited to walk and cycle on it for a day.  I loaded up three cameras and headed out with a backpack. It was not the best…

Week 8 – Lessons in Shutter Failure

This was the second of the two cameras I took with me to Padre Island last week. Details from the trip are here, in the Week 7 post. Apparently, as you will see in the final image on this post, the shutter isn’t working correctly on the upper two speeds, 1/1000 & 1/2000 respectively. I’ve…
