Sellwood on the 4th

The color portion of our exploration of the Argus C3 happened on the 4th of July.  It was a hazy overcast day, and the Kodak Portra 160, it turns out, casts toward the reds and browns, so the results weren’t a real indicator of what the camera can do.  As I mentioned at the beginning of the week, I’d only seen color slides before now, mostly Kodachrome.

While checking the camera settings for this next shot, the owner of the car returned.  I explained my mission, and this being my grandfather’s camera.  He volunteered that the Jaguar had been his grandfather’s!  Some people are very lucky.

It was the only double exposure from this roll, due to my haste to adjust settings and not keep him.  I still like the results!

  1. I’d forgotten how limiting it could be 😁 but a little intriguing too. We’ll see. I dropped off a Walzflex two lens to see if it can be repaired. I shot one roll about 15 years ago, but it was frozen up when my daughter wanted to use it.


  2. I think the problem is you can’t go home again. It took a while to think & see digitally and converting back seems pointless. And now that there is the great Lightroom it seems disingenuous to scan and use.
