    Tower No. 1 box camera (99 cents plus shipping from ebay, 120 Ektar 100, lab development, scanning; I figure these do not qualify for the gallery; in all of these shots, camera was rested on a curb or tree trunk or pier, etc.:

    This next one is slightly cropped at bottom to remove a double-exposed strip:

    Cool. Some of them are a bit underexposed, but a good series all in all. I have a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye which takes 620 film. You can use 120 as long as there is a 620 spool to take up the film. Just be sure to ask for your spool back if you send your film to a lab. I process all my own black and white, but send my color to a lab. They are good about saving my empty spools and returning them.

    Thanks, Michael.
    I run my own black and white, too.
    The ones that are underexposed I figured would be for most of the frame. I was seeing what I could get away with in terms of atmosphere ...
