Happy Father’s Day to all you awesome dads out there!
What is this camera being profiled today? Well it’s the Pentax IQ Zoom 735 and it was my go to point and shoot camera in the mid 1990s. Nothing special about it. I just used it when the situation didn’t warrant a Konica Hexar or Contax T. I did remember though doing some cool double and maybe even multiple exposures with it, something a lot of my big automatic SLRs couldn’t do!
Anyway my Dad wasn’t a photography guy but I gave this to him and encouraged him to use it since he was always walking around NYC in his retirement.
He died in 2011 and there’s still a roll of film in the camera. Being the sentimental fool that I am I haven’t had the heart to take the film out for development so it’s sat in the camera for ten years!
Recently I’ve been thinking it’s time but just like a lot of people who were close to a loved one who passed away I’m reluctant to touch their stuff.
What would you do if this was your dad’s last roll of film? Would you develop it?
Anyway Dad taught me so much by his example how to be a loving parent. Happy Father’s Day to my dad and to all of you great dads out there! Keep doing your thing! 😎😍😎🙏🏻👍🏻
