Aloha Friday

Been feeling lazy and not as motivated to go paddling in the afternoon but I always end up at the club site after work. If there are enough guys to fill a boat we’ll go out, get our workout, and if there are waves catch one at Pops and ride it in to the Sheraton. It’s still pre-season but I hope more guys will be coming out soon so we can train for a race before regatta starts in June.

Short paddle, new steersman, just so good to be on the water.

Friday night sunset gorgeous.

Film on Friday4

The first roll from the Pentax K1000 came back to me yesterday and there are some shots I really like. Several photos are darker than I expected and I don’t know if the cause is I underexposed, the type of film, the scanning process, or a combination of all. Having lots of fun though shooting my cameras and I will be posting more from this last bunch of rolls I had processed and scanned.

All photos from the Pentax K1000 using Kodak Ultramax 400 film.

Midweek Minolta 

My Minolta XG-1 is the first of my growing obsession/collection to die. I only shot 1 roll of film with this one. At first I thought the batteries had died so I put in a new set but no go, the meter did not light up as soon as I pressed the shutter. Looked online for probable causes and possible solutions the consensus being not worth it to fix unless I have a sentimental attachment to it. Too bad it’s a nice looking camera especially with a 28mm Rokkor lens on it and I had wanted to shoot a roll of color next but no can do.
