A small village just outside of Greensburg, and now right next to the new Honda plant. Doesn't look like any of the supposed benefits of such a facility have spilled over to this area.

The old supply store is slowly being covered.  Maybe it's a beautification project.

Thanks, Nick.  Someone gave me a C-35, and in search of a 35mm lens for it, I wound up with a Lordomat attached to it.

I think the stars are more of a country thing.  I've seen other shapes in the cities.

Nice work with that Lordomat, Phil.  I had one years ago and sold it -- I guess I wasn't crazy about the shutter release being on the lens mount.

I don't think I had ever seen the use of the star design for holding the retaining rods until I went to school in D.C. -- must be a mid-late 19th century architectural feature.

I specifically went to Waldron on my recent trip back home to see what it was like after all these years. This was the end of the territory I worked as an Assistant Signal Maintainer on Conrail. No rail traffic there anymore, but the Central Railroad of Indiana has trackage rights all the way to Indianapolis. They only run trains up to Adams though, to service the new Honda plant in Greensburg. The other end of the territory was Signal 108, just outside of Beech Grove, a town that used to be outside of Indianapolis, but now you can't tell where one ends, and the other starts. It's where the big Amtrak passenger car service facility is.

Took this first shot with the last frame in my Olympus XA on Kodak Gold 200.

End Of The Territory by br1078phot, on Flickr
This rail line was completed 100 years before I was born, as the Lawrenceburg and Indianapolis Railroad.  It became part of the Big Four RR (CCC&StL), then New York Central System, then Conrail, before ending up as the Central Railroad of Indiana (CIND), a subsidiary short line operation owned by Genesee and Wyoming.

The rest of these were taken with a Leidolf Lordomat and Schacht-Travenar 3.5/35 on Kodak 100 T-Max.

I had lunch in St. Paul, IN, so dessert was in order.  Blueberry pie al a mode hit the spot.


Waldron Auto Care by br1078phot, on Flickr
Old timey gas station still operating.  They were on vacation though when I stopped by, so no photos of the inside.

This is a little newer than the other side of the street.


Waldron General Store by br1078phot, on Flickr
Not like the old time stores, but there is an area where they put on dinners, meetings, and dances.


Wladron United Methodist Church by br1078phot, on Flickr
Newest building I could find.  I don't remember what used to sit here, maybe a grain mill.

First time I've done a test, and taken needed shots at the same time (see album "Boones Mill Depot After The Move"), but the camera didn't let me down.

Right off the bat, I liked the way it handled, with the controls clearly marked, and in good locations.  I did have trouble getting the placement of the film leader in the right place for loading, which resulted in me having to re-shoot some images after noticing the Re-winder Knob wasn't turning.  Got in a hurry, I guess.

One feature I really like is the HP mode, which uses the widest aperture setting, for a shallow depth-of-field.

Exposures look good, as I can't remember all of which ones I did on manual, or one of the Auto modes.  Which is good, because when in manual mode, it's a bit trickier getting the proper setting using a zoom lens (bellows factor, and variable aperture on the lens comes into play).  So for primes, it's okay in manual, but leave it in Auto or Program when using a zoom, unless it is a constant aperture variety, or you are using the shortest focal length.

This camera is definitely going in the bag with the FX-2.

I was shooting this in manual, and got caught by the cloud throwing a shadow.  It looked worse before I fixed it in PSE10.

Great XA pictures.  I used to love my XA more than I do today.  I think it is a younger person's camera -- like fine print on packages, and little tiny buttons on telephones, the XA is too tiny for my eyes and fingers now.

Been wanting to get caught up on all the cameras sitting around not having been tested, so I loaded the OM-1 up with some Kodak Gold 200, and mounted the newer 35-70 zoom (kit lens from the OM-PC).

The meter is recalcitrant to say the least. Only giving a reading when it wanted to, and those apparently were off (under) by a little over a stop. Some samples below, after some light post processing.

Good to hear from you, Dan.  Been kind of sparse around here since Mike started up that other site.
