Backyard and Old Town Fenton

A Pentax ME, picked up at last camera show, needed its mode dial repaired. It came with a J.C.Penney f:2.8 / 50mm lens.
To test these out after clean and repair, I loaded a 36 exposure roll Fujicolor Superia 200 print film. Expiration date on the roll was July 2006. I am told it was kept cold.

Switching back and forth between the JCP wide angle lens and a Pentax SMC-A f:2.0 / 50mm lens, with a +6 screw-on front diopter auxiliary lens for some of the closeups, I shot most of it in my own backyard. Hot and summer-ish.
Finished the roll down near the Meramec River in old town Fenton.

The wide angle lens was just adequate, and did not want to quite go all the way to infinity focus, per the camera's focusing screen.
The 50mm lens was just fine.

Raw scans of the negatives were courtesy local drugstore minilab. I worked with them in my computer.
