I took an old Pentax ME Super SE 35mm I found at a thrift store and tuned up. This is from the 2nd test roll.
St. Augustine has a lot of lion sculptures, I think when it cools down this autumn I'll go see how many I can find with a camera.
Really neat photo! I really like old statues (whether it is lions or anything else).
I have a bunch of various POLAROID cameras.
They are now totally useless, due to the film no longer being manufactured.
I did see on ‘pack’ (10 pictures) on EBAY for $99.00
I wonder how long before they quit processing 35mm FILM?
Correction: I did see ONE ‘pack’....
St. Augustine is a hoot to visit.....loved the fort and the old skoolhouse.
Polaroid has always been too expensive, it is complicated stuff to make.
Beautiful photo and statue. I want it. :P
Wow—that is an AMAZING photograph! Thanks for the ping!
I use a Huey Pro to calibrate for color and brightness.
ME Super had been my camera for years. I still have it, but took the batteries out for long-term storage. Digital is just so much cheaper to do.
Awesome picture SS. Hope you are pleased with your garage sale find.
Looking forward to your lion collection. Every time our family visits St. Augustine we discover something new.
I always enjoy your posts. Major thanks!
I bought an ME in 1980 and ran a couple hundred rolls of film through it, including an 18 month assignment at an open pit mine. Sometime in 1985, the camera jammed and I sent it in to Pentax for cleaning.
Returned in about a month, the camera cleaner included a note suggesting, “this camera looks like it’s been in a coal mine.”
Two years ago, I traded it in to B&H on a Canon 60D. The Canon is superior in many ways but I miss the light weight ME.
St Augustine is a veritable PARADISE for photography!
And most of the attractions (Like Matanzas Fort, The Castillo, The groovy streets of Old Town) are free or nearly.
It is a nice shot and I would love to see a St. Augustine collection!
I did some garden shots there on 35 MM about 20 years ago and still have some framed and displayed.
Very nice! The blues look almost HDR!
Did you shoot with any filters or do any post-processing on that one?
It's a slow process when you scan for high resolution but I have the time.
I size the files I save at 3000X2000 pixels in TIFF format. I make smaller jpg versions for posting.
