Margaret called me from Old Town Albuquerque where she had ridden her bike to mail some letters from the post office there. I could hardly hear her over the sound of the drums and the chanting, but it was clear that she thought I ought to get myself over there.
On something of a whim, I dropped a roll of 35mm Kodak Gold 100 into my Voigtländer Brilliant. I taped up the yellow window on the camera's bottom to keep the light from the unprotected 35mm film. One-and-one-half rotations of the film advance knob seemed about right to keep the frames separated properly.
Getting a moving target properly centered in the viewfinder which is left-right reversed was a little challenging. Still, I thought the little camera performed brilliantly again.
