Rummaging thru old boxes in the garage can unearth surprises, long forgotten. Here we see the first picture I ever took with a 'serious' camera. A Minolta x-570 manual SLR now considered to be a well-made classic in the advanced amateur cost range. It works fine; I still use it every trip.
This shot was taken on auto with Fujicolor ASA 100 print film. At the time, my reaction was delighted surprise that it worked the way it was supposed to. Today my reaction is a quiet relief that I've had plenty of time to practice over the years.
