three dollars, well spent

A month or two ago I had the serpentine belt in my car replaced. I don't mind having my car worked on for small stuff like that (other than having to pay for it, of course) because there's a great thrift store in the same strip mall. And a super boss middle eastern restaurant across the street. Anyway, during my car operation I spent some time at the thrift store and found this gem for a mere three bucks:

OK, I didn't take that picture, nor is this the actual camera I bought; I'm just too lazy to take a picture of it right now. But it is the same type of camera, a Minolta Hi-Matic G. I did, however, take these'nes, with said camera:

Myspace style, right? I like the light leak on the left border and the other one in the middle of the shot.

Ice storm style. I don't care too much for this kind of weather but it makes for some gnarly photos.

Snoqualmie Falls, WA. Somehow this photo got exposed twice. I think it looks awesome.

Melissa's feet. She's an awesome photographer and an even awesomer person. She'll be helping me with some Christmas card photos this weekend. I hope they turn out sweet.

Anyway, I had a blast shooting and developing a roll of film, which I haven't done since late 2003. I've got a color roll going in this camera right now that I'll hopefully finish up this weekend. And when I go home for Thanksgiving I'm gonna see if I can indefinitely borrow my dad's old film SLR. I love that thing. Film is like the vinyl record of photography.
