Recent found-film feels weird so I’m trying to balance showing images with respecting privacy.

Other images show this is Elfida P. Chavez Elementary School in El Paso, TX – Welcome To Moose Country! Seriously, I don’t think there are moose in El Paso. The students are receiving “Terrific Kids” awards.

The camera is a little older - at least 2007. Even the first-graders are 20 now.

This frame is really damaged but it fits with the strange melancholy mood of it. I think David Lynch would approve.

52 Cameras: Kodak Instamatic 500


I have 3 copies of this camera and the meters all work. Not bad for nearly 60 years old. The meter is uncoupled so you can ignore it and use an external meter or Sunny-16 if yours doesn’t work or you reload or use a FakMatic.

The previous entry about the Milona is here.

Wow! I finally found a manual for this thing. It’s in Czech but still very useful.

Here's a JPEG of the PDF page with a depth of field table (in meters).

Meet Storm, the newest member of our family.

Last Saturday, we found three kittens but the animal shelter wasn’t open until Monday. After days of no food, they were pretty easy to coax out with some pet store formula. Their mother was a good teacher – as soon as the kittens had eaten, they’d disappear into a maze of weeds for safety.

The weather has been crazy and windy and Storm is white and gray, like storm clouds, so it’s a fitting name.

The other two went to the shelter on Monday.

Cute little boogers. I hope they find good homes.

Espanola Humane Society runs the shelter and clinic. They offer low cost or FREE vaccination and spay/neuter services.
