Seriously, It's Covid season...what the hell is there to write about?!?

9 Nearby Hydrants
Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flipped Lens Camera
Kodak T-Max 100 film pulled half a stop
Last week I shot a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. I flipped the lens several years ago. It's been sitting on the shelf of a cottage until recently. I needed to get out of the house, so I took it for a walk...a couple of miles around the neighborhood. I focused (as best you can with an old fixed-focus camera) on fire hydrants. They're easy subjects (trite, too) since the don't complain about posing. Here's what I got. I forgot the camera has a few light leaks. I'll need to tape the seams next time.

In case you don't know, this Brownie model shoots 620 film. It's possible to use 120 on the take up reel, but you may need to bend some small metal tabs on the sides of the pick-up reel holders. It's that easy.
Camera and film ready for (limited) adventure
