A country house











Kodak Ektar 100

This is the country house we stayed in this weekend. Dreamy, isn't it? Unfortunately, I have only half of the shots I took: you won’t see our dreamy breakfast underneath the trees.

I wanted to try again the Canon A-1. The first rolls have been disappointing.
I understood recently that the settings of the camera were not good. I fixed it, but this time half of the roll was completely blank (which never happened before).
Did it ever happen to you? I know I did not open the camera before rewinding completely the roll.
Any clue or advice on this camera is welcome!

Pas de chance, ni pour toi, ni pour nous.
Ça ne m'est jamais arrivé, mais l'été dernier, j'ai perdu toute une pellicule que j'avais prise à Portland dans l'Oregon pour je ne sais quelle raison alors je comprends ta déception.

These are lovely, but such a shame for you some didn't work out :(
I am still struggling with my canon….and with ascension looming with a 4 day break/lots of things going on, I may ditch it for Mr Reliable Praktica!!

Hopefully it was a one-time film manufacturing defect. These photos are lovely. It looks like a beautiful house for laughter and relaxation.

Love it!

kitchu said...

oh my gosh these photos are so beautiful... i am just in love with them! in love!

sorry for your troubles with the camera. i have trouble with the canon A1 (the meter is off) but i still use it now and again. i have lost rolls of film before but usually by my own error.

kristina - no penny for them said...

what a peaceful place. i love your impressions.

regarding the film mystery: is the last frame that you have showing multiple exposures? then maybe the film didn't transport fully? which doesn't necessarily have to do with the camera, i guess, it could also mean that the film got stuck in the capsule half-way through. so sad anyway.

leila said...

pretty bicycle and sandals! looks like summer is on it's way, how exciting : ).

also, i'm having a reaaally hard time with the canon ae-1. it's completely opposite from the pentax, no?

not sure why the rolls were blank, hopefully it gets fixed : ( sorry.

love these shots though, beautiful.
