My name is Thomas Sturm and I'm a programmer, photographer and writer.

Now go outside and look at the sky.

Golden Light

Some time ago I bought a Kodak Retinette 1A for my wife, but we both kind of neglected the camera until now... it is a beautiful 35mm camera from around 1963 with a great, sharp lens and a very quiet shutter.

Last weekend we took the camera along for a hike along San Francisco's Crissy Field and the pictures from that trip speak for themselves. Here are two examples I'm very happy with since setting up the speed and apperture without a meter is quite a challenge in the evening light. The pictures were taken on Kodak Supergold 400.
