Civic Plaza, Albuquerque

It's hard to beat the Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim camera for cheap, dramatic fun. I got mine for $10, new in the box. The two-element plastic lens is amazing.

I like shooting 100-speed color in my simple cameras, but it is getting impossible to find locally. I've ordered some Kodak Gold 100 from B&H, but in the meantime decided to use a neutral density filter for the Plaza pictures on Fuji 200. The piece of film taped over the lens reduces the exposure by about one stop.
