And its another Minolta - I'm becoming a fan of them! As part of the Emulsive Secret Santa last year I received the most generous gift of a Minolta X-500 camera. I'm stilled so stunned by the generosity of this gift and I eagerly shot my way through the black and white film that it came with. I'm waiting until I have at least 2 or 3 completed black and white films until I send them off to get developed, so I haven't got those images to share yet. But I do have another two rolls of colour film that I've also put through this camera developed and scanned and I'm excited to start sharing them with you now!
Urgh look at all those lovely details! I gave myself permission to only take the kind of photos I really love with this camera rather than producing quality of quantity and I think it was totally worth it. Look at the golden colours on those leaves, the peeling paint around the door handle, the daffodils in the window... be still my heart!! Oh and the lace against the flint and brick wall in the first photo...I love it! Ignore my finger (or coat?!) in the feet shot mind hahaha. I'm not 100% perfect it seems.
But boy is this camera a joy to use, I love the sound of it, the ease of it, the results and I'm sure I'll be carrying it around with me more often from now on.
