Seven? What happened to Six? I here you ask…
Well Six was a dud. I loaded a not-long-expired Portra 400 into my Mamiya C330 and something didn’t go right meaning the roll didn’t feed right and I ended up losing it; luckily(?) this all happened before i could even take a shot so at least I didn’t waste much time or lose any actual shots (still annoying though).
For #7 then I chose a fairly fresh roll of Ilford PanF plus 50 which I think is ideal for my 1940ish Voigtländer Bessa Rangefinder –
I had a reason to go down to the airport and took the opportunity to snap the wonderful Theme Building (would love to tour inside one day).
I love the quality of the pictures this camera makes and this film is just lovely. Unfortunately the operator needs to practice more using it as his framing was a little off. Some Voigtländers are a little crazy but this is simple and well engineered; just a nice camera to use. You only get 8 shots off a roll so they go fast; I should be more frugal next time.
On the way I also spotted this great old movie theatre; now being used for medical services which I think is a little random.
