Tuesday With Vous

I’d only known Kate for a few days before she propositioned me to take part in her Tuesday With Vous project. Her only stipulation was that it should be photographed on a "proper camera". I, in turn, agreed on the condition I could shoot film. The result is that these photos come to you a week later than normal, as I couldn’t find anyone willing to offer me a one-hour photo service at 2 o’clock in the morning!

I took the photos on my lovely old Pentax MX, which was my constant companion through two years at college. I bought it second-hand from Redbox Cameras (called Adams Photographic at the time) ten years ago when I started college, and this particular camera is older than I am. One of the reasons I went with it is it is the same camera my Dad owns, so I was already familiar with how to use it. Olny after leaving college did I add to my collection of lenses with a 28mm (used in a few of the shots here) and others, but for more than two years, the f/1.4 50mm lens the camera came with fulfilled all my photographic needs.

Of late, though, I have had less time to use it, and with everything else I carry around I have taken to leaving it at home. It was lovely, then, to be "forced" to use it for Kate’s project, and I feel the urge to try to carry it with me again. As I had to use up all 36 exposures on the 800ASA roll of Fuji Superia, I ended up taking more than the stipulated one photo per hour. Some of these "outtakes" Kate has said she will share next week.
