Pulling out the Ricoh KR-5 (circa 1978) and a roll of Fujifilm 200, we ventured out to the Auckland Winter Gardens. Featured sometime back in my past photos, the gardens were designed at the beginning of the 1900’s and opened in 1913.
Late morning one weekend the fog had not cleared, yet the sun was high in the sky. Made for some interesting well lit but limited view scenery.
Heading into town with an expired roll of Kodak Gold 100 and the micro size Minox 35GL, I grabbed a few shots. The 35GL is a pure zone focused camera, meaning you select the estimated distance via a dial on the unit – no rangefinder to tell you if you are actually in focus. Particularly challenging and rewarding for wide open shots.
