October 1974 - Bitters Court


I was still learning to use this 'new' camera (from 1948) of mine and still making some mistakes.

 

We had a good idea to take our own footbal card pictures of each other.  We used half a roll of film on it, and they all turned out like this.  As I was scanning them I figured out what I did.  The camera had a 'time' setting that would hold the shutter open as long as you held the button.  If you're not on a tripod, you get blur like this.

 

Then I shot on an overly sunny day and into the sun.  Here's Mike with a little over-exposure.

 

This shot of my parents house turned out OK.  That little tree is now 30 feet tall.

 

Evidently my grandparents were visiting because this is their LTD.  I think this is Grandma's blue one, but Grandpa had a copper colored one as well.

A note about photos.  Although these photos are on the web, there is no link to them so they will not be found by search engines.  I also have avoided using any last names, hometowns, etc. in the descriptions.  Really the only people who should see these are the ones I send them too, but if you have concerns with these being on the Internet, let me know.  Eric Elfner, the original photographer, retains the copyright to all photos on this site.
