Autumn Sky 2

"Winds of autumn, as I walk'd the woods at dusk I heard your long-stretch'd sighs up above so mournful."

 

I wouldn't normally put this on Flickr, but I decided to put this up as tribute to my poor old Petri FT that broke the other day while walking through the park. I bought it from St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store here in Austin for $12. It came with lenses, and a fabulous leather camera bag from Mexico that I use every day. It was a fun camera, old and loud and heavy, but fun. Slowly, it began to lose shutter speeds. Finally, I only had 1/15, 1/60 and 1/125. The other day, I lost those when it finally jammed open at all speeds. Perhaps one day I can get it fixed, but these poor old cameras are becoming neglected relics of the past as people push forward with digital. I'll try to keep film alive with my Olympus OM-1 and XA.

 

Austin, Texas.
