I turn my camera on

I've been feeling that the more digital we become, the more cold the world becomes. I wanted something more analog in my life, besides the record player I own and use.

I also wanted a camera that sounded cool when I took pictures.
So I found a Canon AE1 Program camera on ebay, after looking high and low for something that would not set me back too much and something I’d actually use.

I had no idea how to load the film so the first test roll was a bust.
I figured out how to load the film, but wanted to know if thing would work, so I just walked around the neighborhood and took pictures of all of the neat signs I walk by on a regular basis. Luckily, the drug store burns the negatives onto disk, so this will work for the blog as well.

Here are the 1st set of pictures from my new camera (new to me, 30 years old really)
