Brenda and I went out the Maryland Steam Show in Arcadia, Maryland on Saturday to see the wonderful old steam engines and browse the flea market for halloween costume parts. I love to watch the antique steam engines being driven around the grounds of the show, it reminds of the times I went to the show when I was a kid. I brought along my thirty-plus year old Pentax K1000 loaded with Arista 400 film to try out. I'm planning to develop some prints in my newly set-up darkroom in the basement next week and I needed some good shots to experiment with. I also brought the Ansco Panda 620 camera that I bought at the Rinely Yard Sale for a whopping fifty cents filled with respooled Ilford Delta 400 film. After walking around the steam engines in awe and shooting nearly all my photos we started in on the massive flea market to search for parts for this year's halloween costumes - Steampunk. There were lots of tables filled with brass valves and fittings, old gauges and watches, odd looking hand tools and other random bobs and bits. We even picked up an old english riding helmet that Brenda plans to convert into some sort of Steampunk headgear. She has been busy down in the basement working on accessories for her costume, I need to get busy with mine. I developed the film with Arista Liquid Film Developer and scanned the negatives with my Epson V500 Photo Scanner. A few of the images are show here.
