Thank you, David.
The camper on the old truck is one of the oddest things I've seen. It looks to be factory made, but it is so large that it has its own axle that sits under it behind the truck.
It almost looks like a horse trailer that's been converted to a camper...

Here's my camper below. It's a 1960. We're the second owner and it's been in all 50 states.

Here's a couple more.
Pentax MX, 50/1.7, Walgreens 200


Pentax PZ-1p, FA 28-70/4, Kodak 200

It's a strange contraption for sure

I like your truck. Looks like a 1990 F-250?


This is from a test roll of 15yrs expired Konica Professional Color 400 that I shot in my Hasselblad.

Revisiting an older one of mine.
I find this is a very unnerving picture, because the subject's gaze is so direct and expressionless. Do you take many portraits?

I don't do many portraits. It is something I would love to do more of, but it is quite difficult for me because of mobility and dexterity.
That is my wife in the photo. That is one of my favorite portraits that I've done of her. Her personality seems to really show in that photo.

Be that as it may, you seem to have a definite knack for it. I generally give your work high marks for originality, but this one kind of tops them all (though it could be improved by cropping IMO).

Thank you.
In 2012 I read Annie Leibovitz's book "At Work" and most of the photos in that book were printed with the film border. For awhile after that I played with scanning that way. Nowadays I don't really like that look, but for some reason I really like this image left that way.

Pentax MV1, M28/3.5, Ilford FP4+ @ 200, R09 1:24 for 11 minutes.
I'm going to come out and say that I love the MV1. It may be the most basic M series but that's what makes it great as a walkaround camera - there is absolutely nothing to tempt you into fiddling with settings rather than taking pictures. With a wide angle lens and a BW negative film it makes a perfect, lightweight, unintrusive companion.

I used to really like my Pentax ME for the same reason. Just focus and shoot.
Great little cameras.

Thanks Colton. Very close, 1991. It's been a great truck so far and has really low miles. I bought it a couple years ago when we got our camper because my other truck wasn't big enough to carry it. I ended up giving my Z-71 to my brother and I really miss it. It's not the same as my F-250.

Pentax K1000, 50/1.7, Fuji 200

A couple more from the same roll:
