Nikon F6, Nikkor F 105/2.5 P, Kodak Porta 400

April 21st was the second Roll in a day / A day in a roll event.  This is where you shoot a roll of film over the course of one day and upload it in its entirety to your Flickr photostream.

I loved this event when I participated the first time one a month ago.  I especially enjoyed it now as my Dear Sweet Wife went along for the ride this time.

She was encouraged by a recent gift that I gave her, a little something to reignite her love for film photography.  I think it worked!

This time around for my roll I again shot my Nikon F6 with Kodak Portra 400 film.  However, I decided to try using only my old manual focus Nikkor F 105/2.5 P lens.

We had a blast, encountering a teen rock band that really rocked, rodents of unusual size (or ROUS) at Happy Hollow, enjoyed cold treats with our friends, and wrapped up with some yarn winding at home.

See my whole roll here, and her whole roll here.  You can find plenty of examples of our two perspectives on the same subjects.

I am looking forward to the next RIAD event Saturday May 19th, although I am going to have to cook up something different for this time…
