It rained all day yesterday, it was even raining when the weatherman was giving a forecast of partly sunny skies with a slight chance of rain in the afternoon. Well, we had already cancelled our plans. So, today were heading out to Busch Gardens with the fish eye.

Here’s another shot from my first roll of TMax 3200. Looking forward to shooting another roll of this film. I’m also deciding if I want to shoot one more roll of infrared this summer. I suppose after I see the prints from the roll I shot in June, I’ll decide.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 9000
Film - Kodak TMax ISO 3200
Shutter Speed - 1/4000 (man I love this camera!)
Aperture Setting - f-4.5 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 24mm I bought used from B&H Photo
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Things I’m Thankful to Cliff For… A good laugh the day you slid down the stairs on my art box.

It's a sweet shot, full of nostalgic feelings. Somehow b&w scans always look better than colour ones eh?

I love it! I love it! I love it! It's so nostalgic. Great capture. Perfect for B&W.

Have fun at Busch Gardens! Hopefully it will just stay cloudy all day and keep the rain off of your head.

I have to agree with what's been said before. Love the old, nostalgic feel. The ball and glove are really well composed in the image. Great shot!

This is the kinda shot anyone can look at and recall memories from long ago – even if the 1/4,000 sec was only weeks back and they played a different game! It just has that effect.
