Roll 2, Week 2 and a Canon 7ne

Portland Theater

Portland Theater

Roll 2 and week 2 had me using my Canon 7ne and Ilford Delta 400 film. Again I found myself in downtown Portland making photos of street scenes, old landmarks and people. I like the 7ne because I can attach my newer Canon lenses and used the 24-105 all day. What I don’t like is that the camera is bulky, like my Mark II, and it is therefore more difficult to be discreet. I like the auto focus feature, but prefer my Canon AE1 for its size, appearance and the ‘clunk’ sound made when I push the shutter button.

Here are some of my photos from roll 2:

Portlandia has an uncertain  future as the Portland Building is falling apart and need much restoration. Portlandia is the second largest, next to the Statue of Liberty, copper hammered statue.

When I go downtown for the day I try to use mass transit when I can:

Tracks

And I always make time to see the current photography exhibit at the Portland Art Museum:
