• Pentax K1000

    In all the rush and excitement of getting my chemicals to develop film delivered yesterday, and then the shooting and processing of a roll, I also had this little beauty delivered. A Pentax K1000 body that I purchased off eBay. I plopped on the 28mm wid…

  • Pentax Bananas

    This was the first shot I took with my Pentax K1000 - you can even see a little light bleed on the left of the image indicating I didn't wind it quite far enough before taking the first picture. The bananas were lit by a flourescent fixture directly abov…

  • Like Comparing Apples To Oranges

    The 800 speed Kodak film I used seems to have captured accurate coloring on these two different fruits. Not only that, I don't see much grain for such a fast film. It was the first time I'd ever used 800 ISO film and was pleasantly surprised with the re…

  • Treeline

    I tried out some new film today in my Pentax K1000 - it was a relatively new company called Kentmere, out of Great Britain. This was some of their 35mm 100 ISO black and white film. Camera: Pentax K1000 Lens: SMC Pentax-A 28mm, f2.8 wide angle lens, w…

  • Pine Needles

    There's a house about a block from mine that is surrounded by pine trees. I always love going past it. The trees smell so nice - so piney fresh! Camera: Pentax K1000 Lens: SMC Pentax-A 28mm, f2.8 wide angle lens, with Sears 2x tele-converter Film: K…
