The last one looks like it got fogged in the canister or wound back into the canister the wrong way (which can stress the plastic). It could also have been bad light seals on the back door, I suppose...

Enjoy your new/old toy

There’s a lot of fun to be had with a K1000...

Thank you
If i remember right, somehow the back popped open and i didn't find out about it until after she took a bunch of photos, this must have been one where she just held the back closed.

Wondering if the second one is underexposed due to spot metering getting confused by the difference in light available in the scene. Definitely better results this time around.

From what I gather, the light meter isn't the greatest on the k1000. I can forgive it though, the camera is a few years older than I am.

G'day mate and welcome to the forum

If I could find a K1000 for $20 in an op-shop I'd be all over it.
