Day #186

Day #186Title: Big Buick Grille
Location: Promenade Park, Maldon
Camera: Haking Halina Prefect / Haking’s Double Meniscus f/8
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: Today I visited the Maldon Classic Car show – and got lots of colourful digital shots of the old machines. But I also took my Halina Prefect 120 box camera along for a spin. I have been waiting for a sunny day to go out and play with it, and this was the best excuse. For a simple box camera with fixed shutter speed of 1/50s (ish), only three aperture settings to choose from (f/8, f/11 or f/16) and fixed focus, it did a pretty good job of capturing the shiny chrome and curves. The guy who did my developing didn’t believe it was taken on a box camera! Ha!
