Autumn has arrived and with it its weather.
The night was just as warm as the day has been and we’ve mostly had really hard showers. Thunder was predicted but it sort of stopped in Denmark but the more northern thunderstorms in Norway did pass over to Sweden. Autumn has arrived and with it its weather. From now on we’ll have cooler weather with showers every now and again.
The rain did stop to fall when I arrived here at home and we even got some sunshine for a while, long enough for the dogs and I to take a walk to the bog and home again. Now the sun is hiding behind dark grey clouds again and I think it is just a matter of time until the rain starts to fall again.
I didn’t bring any digital camera with me on the walk after work but I did bring a camera. When I bought my Minolta XGM two other camera houses sort of came along 🙂 I have to admit that I really didn’t want the two others but it was three cameras in that auction so what to do if I wanted the xgm 🙂 It was two other Minolta’s, one X-300 and one 5000. I thought I just as well try them and see if they worked because the info in the auction said the seller didn’t know if they worked. So two days ago I decided to try the x-300.
It works much like the xgm and it seems to work just fine as well. I have no wish to keep it tough but I think I’ll give it to someone I know who wants to start photography as a hobby too. I’ll just take this roll of film I have in it now, pack it and send it to that person. After that I’ll try the 5000 but I think I need another lens for that one since it is a fully automatic camera. If it works I’ll most likely give it to someone who wants an old-fashioned camera, I really have enough with cameras as it is 🙂
I mailed the four rolls of film I had here at home this morning, so I guess I’ll be able to down load them from the site on Monday or Tuesday. I’m really interested to see if I managed to stop that light leak in my Rolleicord 🙂 and if I did, if I managed to get any good photos from the small market day in Falköping. I’m not used to take black and white photos and it is much more difficult to take good b&w photos than color ones.
It is time to have something to eat and after that I’ll fall asleep in front of the tv 🙂
Have a great day!
