Sunday Trip


Katie and I took a fun little daytrip yesterday. Exploring Deception Pass and doing some thrifting on the way. This photo of the bridge was my favorite viewpoint.

This camera is one of my better thrift finds recently. Found this bad boy for 11 dollars at a thrift store near Deception Pass in nearly mint condition (also included flash bulbs, a case, and manual). Upon researching it a little this morning, I found that it was Mamiyas first entry in the point and shoot market sold in the US via Sears (Tower 39 Model) in the 60's. Just loaded up a roll and cant wait to see the results.

is that some sort of honeycomb / selenium meter?
man they knew how to make a camera back in the day. the retro olympus EP series of late is as close as we've gotten to sexy in a while.
