Though I used one for about 25 years as my only (working) camera, in recent years I've had a mixed feeling about the TLR. So far not much has changed except a pretty strong feeling that I still have too many cameras. This past weekend I took out the Minolta Autocord for an hour and a half of shooting on West 7th Street in St. Paul thinking it might help me decide whether or not to sell it. Here are a few photos from that film- exposed on HP5+ (rated at 200 as used to be advised- not a good idea now) , developed in straight D76, and scanned at home with a few more adjustments than I like to make, including cropping.
I think that "The Rat's Nest Salon" as a name for the business is West 7th feisty.
Definitely a corner drugstore and it's been that way since 1915.
Schmidt's Brewery, historically the biggest business on West 7th (not a brewery any more).
Stahlman, Schmidt, Bremer house on West 7th (All names connected with the brewery across the street).
So I had to get used to the Autocord again, as expected, but despite my decision to use 200 as the speed rather than 400, I do like the results that came out of it. The detail on the big negative makes up for some inconveniences. I won't decide about selling it till after a few more trials.
