Smile My first pictures with my brick

I went to Watkins Glen State Park yesterday with my "new" C3 that I had purchased over the weekend. Here's the few good pictures I snapped

















I have a couple more I'm working on uploading, will add them when they're done, and none of the photo's have been retouched, just scanned into my computer, all were on color Kodak 200 film

Were you using expired film? The colors seems off.

Cool pics - as a kid growing up in the Endicott/Johnson City area, we used to go up to Watkins Glen when I was quite small. Later I traveled up there with my now wife to watch the Watkins Glen Grand Prix when they reaced through town. I saw Jackie Cooper, Roger Penski, Jackie Strewart, etc. who all race up there.

Not that I know of... I think I didn't have the aperture open enough for being down in the glen. Not to sure though, this is my first manual camera. I have since ran a few more rolls thru and the colors are brighter, will get them up in the next couple days

Nice! It's always interesting using a C3. I particularly love the feeling of getting my pictures back from the laboratory and knowing that I shot them with a 60 year old bakelite black box.

Enjoy your new/old camera !
