We took two cameras to Panama last month–our workhorse Nikon D70 and Julie’s old-school Pentax K1000. We shot four or five rolls of film with the Pentax, and (after soliciting advice from you, my dear readers), I finally got around to getting it developed at the local Lens & Shutter (click-click, click-click).
The battery on the light meter on the Pentax was depleted, so for the first couple of rolls we had to just eye ball things. Compound this with the fact that some of the film was expired (we knew this, and embraced any wacky results), and our efforts were a bit spotty. Here are a few–I won’t say favourites. Here are a few that were not deleted with more certainty than the others:
- A freighter in the muddy Panama Canal, as seen from our plane bound returning from Bocas Town.
- Julie, relaxing at our island retreat.
- The fried fish–head and tail included–we frequently ate while in Bocas.
- An abandoned building in the old town of Panama City.
