First Day of Spring 2012

First day of Spring, and our warm streak of temperatures in the 80s continues.

Camera body: Honeywell Pentax H1a (1963)... SLR, instant return mirror, speeds from 1 second to 1/500 second, flash sockets for both X and Focal Plane synchronization, 42 mm Universal Screw Mount, auto stop down, no meter.
Turns out the cloth shutter curtain has a few pinholes, and they show in some of the images... I am trying to fill them in now.

I switched back and forth between two lenses:
an East German Pentacon f:1.8 in 50mm length,
and a Carl Zeiss Jena Triotar f:4 in 1.35 cm (135 mm length).

Film was outdated Kodak Max 400 that I rated @asa 320.

Started the roll in my front yard, then shot most of it at Laumeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills.
The redbud trees are at peak around here.
