I went ahead an did the Facebook/Flickr thing with all of the pictures I took on the Nikon FE, but I reserved these three for the blog.
Texas occasionally has spats of good weather during the winter and we like to take those opportunities to step outside for some fresh air. On this particular day at the beginning of the year, we used the power of the sun to dry our wet laundry. The light had a really interesting quality to it and I knew I had a few shots left on the Nikon, so I took them.
Even though the pictures didn’t come out the way I saw them in my mind’s eye, I am pleased with how they look. Of course, I am always pleased with how my wife looks… always.
The results were totally unexpected. First, the film is expired, so there is no telling exactly what has happened to the emulsion. Second, I’m still getting used to the light meter, and the shots aren’t exposed correctly. Third, I think that there is a possibility of some light leaks on the back of the camera due to some rotted out light seals. Looks like I’m going to have to get those fixed.
