Roaming around…

Mariposa, CA. Nikon FM2. Kodak Portra.

I recently tested out a Nikon FM2 a dear friend gave me. No better place to test it out next to a pool and a dog. I hope to add this to my semi-not-so-annual ‘Camera of the Month’ posts….guess I should really change that name. Anyway, I’m pleased with how the whole roll came out. The Nikon FM2 is almost a fully manual camera, which I’ve never had the pleasure of using. It was fun and I’ve officially added it to my bag of tricks. More to come.

I shot this at Newhall Mansion after scouting it for an upcoming wedding. The historic mansion is full of pleasant surprises, beautiful architecture, and lovely views. I am very much looking forward to capturing the beautiful couple at this amazing location. Taken with my Canon AE-1, Kodak Portra 800 film.

I shot this while driving around with my Dad near Mariposa, CA. He was very patient with me since I wanted to stop and take photos…everywhere! This particular shot, we had pulled over and I climbed into the bed of his truck so I could get just a wee bit higher. It was a beautiful cool day in December and you could hear all the cows talking to each other, which I must admit, makes me giggle. I’m mature, I know. But listening to animals “talk” is something I find comical and enjoyable. Taken with my Canon AE-1, Kodak Portra 800 film.
