Chicago on Film

Julianna had a conference for work in Chicago, so baby and I came along to keep her company at night and wander downtown during the day. I left my digital gear at home and brought instead a few film cameras: a Rolleicord twin-lens reflex, an Olympus Pen FT—a sleek piece of design from 1963 that shoots half frames and gets 72 shots from a 36-exposure roll—and a Ricoh AF-5 compact autofocus camera from the early '80s. Shooting digital for work and film for fun has been something of a trend for me, but I'd definitely like more opportunities to shoot professional work on good old light-sensitive silver halide crystals.
