young love

The first time we visited the Musee Mechanique, I found myself frustrated that I could only get so close to the subjects with my Canon FT (1m), and thus ended up with more reflections than I'd have liked, in my shots. My solution to this, at the time, was to use my digital point&shoot to zoom in on my subjects. This was often complicated and undermined by the auto-focus feature on the camera. Also, most of what I shot was color and I felt there was a moodiness and pathos that was present in the subject matter but missing from most of my photos. Anyway, Kira and Steve's visit last week gave us an excuse to return. Knowing it was a poorly lit venue and knowing I'd want to get right up on the glass in some cases, I brought my Olympus OM-2n and a roll of Fuji Neopan 1600 film which I pulled about 30 seconds but it still came out a little blown out.
