I lived the first, oh...15 years or so of my photographic life with nothing more than a Pentax KX, SMC Pentax 50/1.8, SMC Pentax 135/2.5 and a crummy little Vivitar 152 flash.
Today, I might choose:
Nikon FA, 28mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor and Tri-X.
flash...we don't need no stinkin' flash!

Hmmm, hard choice, either:
Mamiya 645 100S
Okay close my eyes, pick one..Still hard...
F4, Nikor 50mm 1.8, SB600
Man That was a hard decision!
Ooops! You wanted 35mm info. So that would be:

Today I started the challenge. In spite of the extreme temptation of taking several cameras and lenses with me to a fantastic garden here in Florida, I left everyhting behind except for my F3HP with MD4, 35mm 2.0, and Vivitar 285HV flash.
I went to a place called Bok Tower and Gardens in Central Florida. I made it there in the late afternoon, just as the sun was casting that great orange glow. I took a couple of Fuji Velvia ISO 100 rolls of slide film. It was a real challenge to say the least! I felt almost naked without my usual two bags of equipment!
After a few minutes the creative juices started kicking in. I actually had to force myself to walk in order to get a well composed shot instead of relying on a zoom lens. I made every shot count. It was a great experience! If there is enough time tomorrow I will probably drive out to another garden near Sarasota or take several street shots in nearby old Florida towns.
I really do not understand this thread. Not because of the idea - but because it is posted in the 35mm forum and the then on the very first response we get 5x7 format getting discussed!
And on and on.
Some of us actually LIKE to shoot 35mm and would have been interested in this thread if it hadn't gone off topic with the first response!
Given the stray, shouldn't this thread be in "The Lounge"?

My bad - I didn't see the sub-category it was in when I posted, since I saw it in the New Posts list, and didn't come to it through the sub-forum list. To go back on-topic, then it would be my Contax G1 with 45mm F2 lens, and for film, I'd stick to Kodak T400 CN.
