Before there was digital there was Kodachrome.

In the '70s the 35mm camera I could afford was a hyper-cheap Mamiya Sekor with a 50mm lens bought at Fed Mart for $135. A couple of Vivitar telephoto zooms and thousands of frames later it was the '80s, so I got a job long enough to save for a Nikon F3, a stunning 28mm Nikkor lens, and an even more stunning 20mm Nikkor. Pretty much everything I shot was experimental: colors and shapes, multiple exposures, even some feeble conventional portraits at which I profoundly suck. The outcome was a small portfolio of images which seemed worth saving. These are them.
