Both my parents love photography and I grew up around cameras. My parents took most of our childhood pictures on an Olympus XA rangefinder camera. I remember this camera was a precious item in our household. My dad bought it from one of his photographer friends in the early 1980's.
In the last few years my parents have moved on to digital photography and I am starting to inherit all the awesome film gear. Recently, my Mom gave me this Olympus and I have been shooting with it regularly. I feel guilty for letting my DSLR collect dust on my shelf.
My style of photography totally changes when I am taking pictures with a film camera. I can't do any test shots to quickly check my exposure or to see how light is falling on my subject. I have to think much more and it is really fun to go lo-fi once in a while.
This is a picture of Grand River (Lansing, MI) about a block away from my apartment.
This is Eric at an incredible Jamaican restaurant in Lansing. They blast Jamaican music all day.
I had to open the back of the camera in a (not so dark) room. This was an unexpected result. The light leak is perfectly over the manhole.
