I love film...always will! Hope you enjoy these "typical everyday scenes"!

Pentax MZ-7 and some No Name ISO200 Film I picked up at Wal-Mart to try! (And I like it)

No argument from me**. The first 2 are very good shots. Nothing from a DSLR will quite give that texture to a shot.

** other than I just couldn't afford to run both these days...

Several of these shots have a beautiful, smooth vignetting effect that just draws you in to the center of the photo. Makes me feel all wintery.

Thanks folks!

I must admit that I ask myself everyday why I bother to shoot digital, but I know it's because of the instant gratification and results!

The vignetting is a result of the lens hood! I get this every time I use this Tamron 28-200 lens and rubber hood. But I like the effect so I leave it on purpose!

Here's another example from the same lens with the rubber hood fully extended out:
