The roasted nut vendor at the Christkindlmarket. Pecans, almonds, cashews, all kinds of nuts roasted in sugar and spices. The aroma is amazing, and the taste is incredible. :) This is my entry in this week's Photofriday weekly challenge - fresh.
If you remember from yesterday's post, prompted by Kodak sending me a roll of 120 film by mistake, I decided to buy a couple of rolls of 120 to test a pair of old cameras I've had since I was a kid. On my way home, I did just that. I remembered that one of the cameras is a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash. The other is a Spartus Vanguard.
Much to my dismay, upon inspection of the cameras, I discovered that neither one of them uses 120 film. Blah. The Spartus uses 127 film. When I opened the Brownie, printed right there on the camera was "This camera does not take 120 film."
With a little research, I found out that the only difference between 120 and 620 is the spool. Apparently the 120 spool will fit on the upper spindle of the Brownie, but not the lower, take up, spindle. Which means that, once I've exposed the film, I have to go into a light-free room, unroll the film from the 620 spindle, and then re-roll it onto the 120 spindle. That, or trust the developer to send my spindle back. Yea, right. Plus, I only have one 620 spindle, so if I wanted to shoot some more, I'd have to wait until my film, and hopefully my spindle, came back before I could. I'm too impatient for that.
Before I try all this, however, the Brownie needs a good cleaning. You can't even see through the viewfinder anymore, and the inside of the lens is corroded. Should be an adventure. It might be less work to just make myself a spamera.
