Photographs & Memories

Got a new camera recently... ok, I got a new phone. But the only real reason I really wanted it was for the camera features. Sad though, I've got an old digital SLR and a bag full of lenses and this thing beats the snot out of it for resolution and ease of use. And I can't help but laugh a little when I recall my first camera as a kid, a Kodak Instamatic model 104 that took 126 cartridge film and flash cubes. It was the camera I used on our first trip to Florida in the early 70s and I took pictures of everything, wearing my folks out with requests for more film. Thinking back? If I'd had access to this technology back then? Oh man, the fun that would have been had!

Anyway. Here's a shot I took Saturday afternoon. I do like its performance in situations where the lighting and levels are less than optimal.

Taking It Off

Self explanatory. Have some cleanup work to do while we're at this state including removing the rotted splash panel and installing a new shock while it's exposed and easy to access.
