a test drive
. . . . . . . . .
a very generous family friend kindly gave me an olympus OM-1 this past fall. it was his mother’s camera, which she used to take beautiful photos throughout her life. when he heard i was into photography, he thought i would use it more often than he did, so i now have the camera and some really amazing lenses. i feel very lucky.
with my move last year, i didn’t have much time to try it out. plus, the lenses he gave me were a little …. daunting (to say the least). but there was a prime lens included, which i am familiar with, so i finally took the camera out for a spin this weekend.
above, i’m sharing some favorites from this roll. i think the camera has good karma, don’t you? i’m going to treasure this piece of equipment, and i will start to use the various lenses over the coming months. it’s going to be quite a learning experience and i can’t wait. thanks, mr. smith (and the rest of the fam!)
more photos from this roll soon. a good day to you!
