Travel Photography

You may have seen this on my London and Paris page. My Dad loved photography and was always taking pictures of landscapes, flowers, and, of course, his family. He was always giving me tips before our trips. One of his best cameras was the Canon AE-1.
I thought it would be fun to reminisce and look up the cameras I've used on our vacations. All of the pictures used for our stories were taken by either me or Margaret. Remember, these are now vintage, film cameras, not digital. The kind that used film that you had to put inside lead pouches to go through the airport x-ray so pictures didn't come out foggy. The kind you had to snap the pictures and hope they came out. You wouldn't know until you came home and developed them unless you paid a fortune and had them developed somewhere along the way. I can't imagine how many pictures we would've taken if we had had a digital camera.

Here's my Dad's Canon A-1 camera, the last one he bought. It took great photos. Who knew you could find these on YouTube. On the other hand, what can't you find on YouTube? :)

My first camera, and the one I took on our first trip, was a Canon QL17 GIII 35mm.

The Yashica Samurai was really unique. It did film in half frame, which meant that if you had a roll of 36 frames you would get 72 pictures. Great idea for getting more bang for your buck. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on here in the US and I ended up trading it in for another camera because I was afraid it would be too difficult to have the film developed eventually. Took great pictures, though.

*Parker Stevenson ShadowWorks - Yes, the Parker Stevenson of Hardy Boys and Baywatch fame. He's much into photography now and has done portraits as well as landscapes. The photo of The Lone Cypress is one of my favorites. I included a picture of Margaret in front of the famous landmark at Pebble Beach on the 17 mile drive on the Monterey Peninsula in California. Parker's, of course, turned out much better. :)
