M sent me an email with a link to a Paul Krugman piece in The New York Times.
It got me thinking. There should be a cat in any war room so they are reminded that:
- Life has value: Aw, look at that fuzzy little face.
- Action or inaction has consequences: I didn’t change the box and he shit in my briefcase.
- Senseless evil does exist in the world: Will someone please put that mouse out of its misery? It’s making me sick.
Merry Christmas everyone!
She went away
Leaving sea ice and sadness
She looks like a marmoset
And she knows how to use it
The film is Kodak VR 400. It was in a lot of expired film I got for $1.00 a roll. Most of the rolls are a couple of years out of date. This one was labeled Develop before 03/88. From the look of the photos, it lost about 2 full stops. ISO 400 is a bit grainy any way but this roll picked up a lot more grain from age.
Film caveats out of the way, I really like this camera and I’ll try again with some fresh film. The rubber grip was coming off and the light seals are goo (I used studio tape for this trial run) but now that I know it works, it’s definitely worth spiffying it up.
This is the only posted photo using flash and it shows that the camera can take nice pictures with sufficient exposure.
This is using the wide angle adapter so it probably lost another stop worth of light.
I’ll do another entry with some post-processing on the pictures.
