For October, I put a roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 through a Yashica FR-II. We’ve been wanting to do some off-grid camping and have outfitted our Jeep Wrangler with a rooftop tent. Before really going off grid, we decided it would be smart to test out the setup in a local campground (it’s better to realize you don’t have a vital piece of equipment an hour from home rather than deep in the mountains a days drive from home). And whenever we’re on any kind of trip, I always take a film camera.
We spent two nights in Hueston Woods State Park, located in College Corner, Ohio. Near the campground, there’s a covered bridge. I took this photo on the pedestrian walkway though the bridge. I’ve always loved covered bridges. I hope you enjoy this photo.
As for the Yashica, it’s an interesting litte camera I picked up in a thrift store nearly 20 years ago. I did a full write up on it a while ago on my blog (https://www.theunrecoveringphotographyaddict.com/blog-1/2019/4/15/discovering-the-yashica-fr2). Stop by and give it a read if you’re interested in learning more about this camera.
