flowers for a dreary weekend

16 May


the last of the trees’ spring show. Arnold Arboretum, Ipswitch River Sanctuary, & Somerville

it was a good, albeit dreary weekend so i have some flowers for you this morning. we made it to both brimfield, and the mit flea. eric and i turned up a few bits and bobs at brimfield, nothing big. the flea was the more impressive haul, and we only spent 20mins there. we finally have a turn table! yea! and…i found a couple used film cameras! YAY! a Yashica electro 35 and an argoflex came home with me. can’t wait for the grey clouds to lift so i can get these babies into the rotation. alas our optimistic weatherman said, it’s rain “till further notice”. oh that’s the charming new england spirit for ya. have a good monday!

    Hey nice job finding that yashica and the argoflex. I had an argoflex for a bit and loved it.

      Thanks! I’m really excited to clean these guys up. The argo is a mess inside, but i’m sure that will add to the “character” of the images. Were you able to use 120 film in yours or do you need to respool?

        I was able to use 120… Respool? I thought they all used 120. anyway the shutter speed stopped working so I retired it. By the way my first camera was a rangefinder. I put a lot of film through that thing. I wish I still had.

        This one uses 620 film but i think all that means is it’s a different pin shape in the spool’s end, hence the re-spool of 120. I’m gonna clean up that Yashica tomorrow & hopefully bring it on Sunday. You’ll have to give it a go!
