My sister lives about halfway down a one lane, gravel paved road off of a similar road, off of an actual paved road somewhere called Hobbesville, NC.
It just barely rates a dot on a map. There are abandonded houses everywhere and on thanskgiving, I could help but go down to the one on the corner and take a few pictures.


These were all intended to be throwaway shots with my very old Kodak digital, but a lot of them ended up being more what I was looking for than the film shots with the minolta xg-m that I'm still trying to get intuitive with.

Very nice work, hon. Toldya you take good pictures. ;P

I'd have to say that 2, 3, and 5 are my favorites. Whenever I get that 35mm I'm drooling over, we might have to go on a little road trip.

Those would be my favorites as well. I need to scan in some of the film ones that I took. There are a few in that bunch that turned out how I wanted and there were a few happy accidents too.


That 35mm you're drooling over is the one I've been drooling over too. I was reading up on it and there's actually another version of the same camera that prints aperture and exposure info for each shot inbetween the frames of the negatives.
Unfortunately, I've yet to find a place that sells that version of it.

I think my camera will begin to make me happy when (if) I get a better lens for it. It's the standard 35- 50mm that came with the camera and its lack of zoom regularly annoys me. I'm torn over wether I want to get a whole new camera (one with auto settings as well as manual) or if I want to just keep working with this one until I no longer NEED an auto.

hehe.. all these points are horrible moot until I become independently wealthy.
