Old old camera

So today I trimmed 23 cups and added handles to most of them. That makes a total of something like 40 cups in this new, better format. These cups are tall, centered, have a trimmed foot, and some have decorative lines in them. I even had a fellow potter walk by and remark on how professional they look.

I'm working on getting slides of my finished work to enter into contests (these are called "Call for Entries" ) My cousin let me borrow his camera: a "pentax asahi mx 35mm camera". It's old style (no automatic anything). Its a single lens reflux camera - thats the best kind for taking slides of ceramics to enter contests (according to the ceramics professor). I'm actually quite lucky - this camera is old but the bag they passed me was packed with lenses, a telephoto lens in a leather bag, 2 more containers of screw on lenses...padded cases...and 4 little plastic cases of Cokin filters.

I'm off tomorrow on a plane to LA. My boyfriend's sister is graduating with her master's degree and his whole family is flying out to be there (some people flying from new york). It seems to be a *Big Deal*. She says that since she's not getting married, this is her big event for her life.

I still like my old nikon, with manual controls you don't have to worry about the battery going dead if you just bracket exposure. I don't know how you would get slides from digital but I guess it can be done. Black and white film photography (my specialty) is becoming a fine art. They don't even teach it anymore at the college I went to.
Maybe a typo but it's "reflex" not "reflux".
Reflux is what you take Prevacid for .
