Photos: Veterans Day 2012, shot with film

post by Howard B. Owens in Veterans Day

After taking pictures of the first two Veterans Day observances this morning, at Genesee County Park and the VA center, I decided to go home and exchange my digital camera for a couple of my film cameras. Just to do something different, produce some pictures at the historical Upton Monument that had an old-time feel. 

I was shooting with a Nikon F, loaded with Ilford XP2 400 and a Contessa range finder loaded with Kodak Ektar 100. Both cameras are fully manual.
