from the archives: coney island

a few years out of college (serendipitously around the time i started getting into design and photography), my eldest uncle gifted me his Canon FTb from 1971, in mint condition complete with 3 different fixed lenses and some accessories.

below, a few shots from my first excursion with the camera in coney island c. July 2010, and first time shooting with an SLR on film. big thank you to my dear friend jac who taught me step-by-step how to use the camera and a light meter.
