I can’t understand the thing.
I’ve got almost all sence of feeling back in my left foot and my legs don’t ache that much either so now it’s only the shoulder left to get back to normal. So I’ll use a heat pad as much as possible this weekend and hope for the best. We’re having a very mixed weather today. Windy and sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy and sometimes cloudy or sunny with some rain falling at the same time. It will stay like this during the weekend but predictions change faster than the speed of light so I really have no idea what it will be like tomorrow 🙂
It was much easier to load the camera with film than I had expected even though there are two ways of making mistakes and I did one of them 🙂 The first is that one puts in the film the wrong way, this kind of film, 120, is covered with a protection paper on one side and if one doesn’t know on which side it’s easy to put that towards the lens 🙂 I did however another mistake. There’s a sort of metal rail on one side of the cassette where one loads the film, I didn’t understand that one is supposed tom put the film beneath it so the film stays flat. If not no photo will be good no matter how good photographer one is. I tried to fix it in the dark but since I couldn’t see anything and had to loosen this rail and tighten it again without really knowing how it was impossible, so I sacrificed that film.
Not such a bad idea actually because now I know I put in the film the right way and I also understand what to do when I’ve taken all photos. At the end of each film roll there’s a long part with only paper and at the end of that there’s a piece of tape. So one just rolls the entire film till the end and then tapes it together. I’ll show You when I’ve come so far 🙂 I’ve also bought an old light meter and it works, the problem is that I just don’t understand how 🙂 🙂 🙂 So if You can find a manual on a Gossen Sixti lightmeter I’ll be ever so grateful 🙂 I’ve searched the net but can only find photos of this lightmeter and many are for sale but no manual! So I’ll use my cheat sheet tomorrow when I’ll try the camera for the first time 🙂
I’ll also need to check the manual for the camera and lens too, there are some things I’m not sure of, well I really don’t understand it at all but I do have that manual thankfully. I do hope that I’ll at least will be able to see what it is the photos are supposed to show when the first film is developed 🙂
It’s time to feed the animals and after that I’ll feed myself too. I won’t do much tonight, just sit still having the heat pad on my shoulder and hope that there will be anything worth watching on tv.
Have a great day!
