Shortly after my first outing with my Pentax K-1000 I remembered I was given an old Nikon from my dad and a old Canonet from my aunt. And I found there was a box of film in with the Canon. It was a common Kodak film. Thinking about the cost of film I decided to try out this film which was long expired. I figured the photos would either come out really poorly or maybe I'd get a decent one in there.
On this occasion I headed to Mt. Wachusett in Westminster. There are a few decent trails there and a nice plateau at the top where you can see a decent part of the state. You do have to be careful if its rainy or wet in any way as much of the way you are walking up rocks and steps made of stone.
As always I was just happy to be getting out and taking some photos. If I remember correctly I took my Fuji camera with me as well, but I was way more interested in seeing these results.
Now although these didn't turn out well at all, and there were many that were way worse, it was an interesting experience seeing them. They do have that grainy film look and at least I was able to work on my composition a little. Also, I noticed that it would be much harder, on film, to shoot close to wide open which I was very accustomed to.
This led me to start looking for a camera that would be more ideal for precise focusing. And I also realized that opening the aperture more is really fun.
