I have borrowed my dad's old manual slr camera, the Minolta SRT 303 (bought in 1974). It's the first time I shot with a fully manual camera. Fun! But also so different from what I'm used to. I'm glad dad (and mum) visited this weekend so he could show me how it works. I finished my first film on our walk to the city centre, but it tore when I tried to rewind it. Bummer! Curious to see what the camera could do, I quickly finished another film and had it developed in an hour. The photos above are some of the results from my little photo walk around Torgalmenningen and the theatre. It was a grey, overcast day, so the light was - in my opinion - crappy. I also just used a very simple film, the Kodak Ultra Gold (400 iso). I'm not very impressed by these first results, but I think we'll be good friends, the Minolta and me. After all I have seen the photos dad has taken with this camera, and they are more than decent.
