the end of a film roll.

I had taken the most of this film roll somewhere else - yet I had six shots remaining: I decided then to take my Nikon FM along too during our trip last saturday. even though the remaining six frames weren't supposed to be the most important ones - they turned out lovely: the sun was shining for the first part of our walk and we had managed to finish the film roll before the clouds came around.
Nikon FM - kodak portra 800:

Viikki - Lammassaari.
note that the 800 iso was almost too bright for that kind of weather - we weren't expecting sunshine at all that day. Jacopo and I took three photos each of the six remaining: the last one shows the Mamiya RB67 at work with the FP-100C.
P.S. I wasn't really expecting these snapshots to turn out so pleasant: it teaches me not to waste anything of a film roll - not even the very last six frames of a 36-exposure one.

    1. thank you, Catarina! :-) I bought the Mamiya from a friend of mine, during my second year at the photography school in Milano: he had bought it himself from somebody else before, so the camera is very old, yet it works perfectly! :-)
