I couldn’t just sit around all day, so I decided to continue my tradition of going out for a shoot on New Years.

2014 Did Not End Well by br1078phot, on Flickr
Well, at least not for this poor raccoon.

Made That Last Run by br1078phot, on Flickr
Now retired to a barnyard.

Till Spring Returns by br1078phot, on Flickr
These rolls of hay will have to last through the winter.

Spec Depot by br1078phot, on Flickr
If Nace, VA is a small village (another mile or so down the road), Spec is nothing more than a spot on the map.  NS still uses this building though as a dropping off point for trackbed material.

A changed out section waiting for the rail train to come back and pick it up for recycling.

Pride and Joy by br1078phot, on Flickr
The farmer that owns this is proud of it's heritage, and joyful he doesn't have to operate it anymore.

There are many trestles along the Norfolk Southern Shenandoah Division mainline that runs from Roanoke, VA to Hagerstown, MD.  This is one of them.  Situated in Botetourt County, VA, it crosses the road to Nace about a mile from US-11.  All the bridges on this line were rebuilt back in the 1930’s by the Norfolk and Western Railway to a stronger design in order to handle the larger engines and traffic loads.

To Scale by br1078phot, on Flickr
Just to give you an idea of the size of the structure

So the caboose crew could put out tie fires, which were fairly common in the days of coal fired locomotives

The village of Nace stands alongside the NS Shenandoah division mainline in Botetourt County, VA.  There’s not much to the place, with only about half a dozen structures in the immediate area.  An abandoned general store is the most interesting of these.

Just outside of Nace, VA

Approach by br1078phot, on Flickr
Slow down, and prepare to stop at the next signal.

Nace General Store In Camera B&W by br1078phot, on Flickr
The monochrome setting looks better than converting a color shot in PSE10.

Nace General Store by br1078phot, on Flickr
Front shot.  The locals say the floors are collapsing, so no one has been in the place in years.

Nace General Store by br1078phot, on Flickr
A housing unit was added at one time in back, likely for the owners to stay in.

Nace, VA Post Office by br1078phot, on Flickr
Anything bigger than a catalog, you’ll have to drive in to Troutville to fetch.

According to the manual, it's 1/125 @ 18-DIN/50-ASA, and 1/250 @ 21-DIN/100-ASA On the Optima I.  You can extrapolate the other speeds from there.  The camera can be put into manual mode so you can select whatever aperture you want.

Love it. I used to just toss film found in old cameras. It all needs developing. Wonder who these folks were. The boats scenes look like Florida.

Does anyone know the shutter speed for an Agfa Optima I or Optima IIS cameras. The Optima I has a metering problem and I don't believe it is changing the f:stops in automatic mode ? But I can select the f:stops but what good is that if I don't know the shutter speed??
   The Optima IIS seems to be working fine.

The Photo Today site wouldn't let me sign in?Huh?

Me too, even if it's just out of nostalgia. I had some real good times here, and learned a lot.

i think we all did.and it still is a great archive while it's going.
