Day at the Zoo

Post by scott » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:31 pm

Hi all -

A few weeks ago we went to the Elmwood Park zoo in Norristown. Small zoo. Very nice little place in general. Kind of cold in early March. We got there about an hour before closing, and it was 36F. Think, outside, we saw four animals. Inside maybe another ten. Small zoo, like I said. But we had a nice time, and it was good to get out. The Yashica-Mat was loaded (long ago) with Acros, actually before it was discontinued. So, I brought it along.

As is typical, these are mostly grab shots and snapshots of the fam. So not much in the way of art, but fun nonetheless.

Nice. I think we're all going to miss Acros, until we get used to FP4 again.

Yeah but I think it’s just a matter of time before Ilford pulls the plug on FP4+ too.

Nice family documents.

I believe that the last frame on film on earth will be exposed in FP4+

Looks like you had a great day out, well done. I too have a Yashica-Mat.
