Skywatch Friday No. 59

For this week's Skywatch entry, I made use of a roll of black and white film that had sat in my old 35mm camera bag for at least 9 years. I loaded it in an even older Kodak Duaflex III TLR camera, and got results like this picture. The camera is designed for 620 film, which is wider than 35mm, so when you load the camera with 35mm, the whole film is exposed, including the sprocket holes.

Main Street, Niles, Michigan

I kind of like the sprocket holes!

That's a beautiful shot and I think the sprockets add character.

Such a great technique. Thank you for explaining the steps.

Seems like film and cameras were made better at one time. It made for a very interesting photo. I wonder if I have some film sitting in my old Minolta.. I have to take a look. When I remember where I put it..

Those sprocket holes are a really neat frame for a "retro" image.
