Photo Of The Day: “Hello Sunday” 😍

Just a quick photo to start your Sunday. This was shot with a Yashica 35CC. Film was Kentmere 400 and developed with Kodak Xtol.

The Yashica 35CC is a 35mm rangefinder from the 1970s and has an impressively fast 35mm f/1.8 lens as opposed to the 45mm f/1.7 lens on many Yashicas from that era.

A review is likely to follow yes but here’s the funny (and maybe sad) thing. This photo was shot two years ago in 2019 and I’m only posting it now! That’s how behind I am with everything 😩

Work, family, the 2020 and beyond COVID 19 pandemic, my scanner dying, concentrating on building the YouTube channel…all these factors contributed to me being behind.

Recently I heard an old song by Don Henley called “The Last Worthless Evening” and there’s a line in which he sang “There’s just so many summers babe and just so many springs” 😀

I said Samster you war torn sumbitch you ain’t getting no younger so you better get moving! Hopefully I’ll be here more frequently. Happy Sunday good peeps! 😍📸👍🏻

    1. Hi David! Actually yeah they’re very popular here in the States because it’s a decent cheap film. Not sure if it’s the same company as the one you remember but indeed this particular Kentmere is quite popular with film photographers 😎📸👍🏻

  1. Excellent shot with that iconic old rangefinder! I’ve never shot anything but Ilford, Kodak and Fuji. Now I’m noticing that many (maybe the majority) postings on Flickr from film photographers are with Kentmere, Foma, Arista, Lomo etc etc.

    1. Hey Bro! Just like you I grew up on Kodak, Ilford, and Fuji. Now I use Kentmere, Arista, etc. I’m a product of the times! Yeah those films are ok but the main reason they’re popular is because they’re cheap! Thanks for the kind words, regards to the great Mrs. B and glad to hear from you! 😍🙏🏻👍🏻
