Kodak Brownie Twin 20

Brownie with ancient Ansco filmI purchased the Brownie Twin 20 at Savers (a thrift store) for $4 two years ago, and discovered an ancient roll of Ansco black-and-white still loaded with only four or five exposures used. Unsurprisingly, the found photos didn’t come out, and neither did the photos I attempted to take on the remainder of the roll.

Finally, a year and a half later, I did a real test of the Twin 20! Back in February, I loaded it up with Ektar 100 speed, spooled onto a 620 spool.

Just had a blast practicing my shoot-from-the-hip street photography skillz with my teeny tiny Pentax Auto 110 SLR with the 18mm wide angle!

You know you’ve got the #sewing bug when a stack of neglected mending suddenly looks like an opportunity to practice blind hems and buttons.

Downtown Photo Walk: December 2016

My five-year-old son’s film camera is a no-name focus-free 35mm camera that my husband got for free years ago. At first it was a toy… but, as it turns out, this little camera takes contrasty, vignetted photos that I really love. So, I’m never hesitant to load up his camera when he asks, because I know he’ll get bored with photographing at some point, and I’ll get to shoot the rest of the roll.

I took the generic blue 35mm on a photo walk downtown back in December. These were the results.
