Taxi!

First roll taken in an Action Sampler kindly donated by Steve Wannabe. Plastic, one lens, four frames, no controls whatsoever, shutter speed 1/100th of a second, exposure interval .22 of a second, manual rewind. Order of shots in landscape seems to be: Top left, bottom left, bottom right, top right. (...but that is open to some debate...) No meaningful viewfinder as such, just a plastic flip up thing on the top, but I found that random waving at hopeful possibilities was the best and only way.

 

I'd also just like to say thanks to the folk from the NYC Social Group on flickr, who were so helpful in the run up to our arrival and during the stay there. In particular Lasadh in the run up to AND throughout the whole trip but also, Aaron Edwards before we arrived, and amg2000, Harry J Bizzarro, RubyMae, Simon Pride for joining us for a flickr-walk in the drizzle at Brooklyn's Greenwood Cemetery, and on our last evening. Finally, on our last day our completely chance encounter with NYCArthur who on our last morning before flying home, spotted us taking photographs, wandered over and said... "Do you know of flickr?"! :)

 

Velvia & B&W still to come!
