Week 12 - Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim (CotW)

It seems that my motivation for the Camera of the Week is slowly waning, which oddly coincides with the end of the list of all my toys. And since I'm shooting film, there is always a lag between when I shoot and when I receive my images from the lab and it gets a bit confusing. I suppose I should start keeping better track. This week I received 2 rolls of film (weeks 12 & 13), but I slacked on shooting an entire roll of film since both cameras had film from my "Spring Break". Ah well...

So, the Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim is this lovely little plastic point and shoot camera that I bought a couple of years ago on eBay for a measly $12 including shipping. I've seen these little gems go for $20 + shipping! Wow... I'm so happy I jumped on that bandwagon before they became popular! :) They have this lovely "ultra wide" 22mm lens with incredible vignetting. People sometimes call it the Poor Man's LC-A. This little thing gets tossed into what ever bag I have with me and is always pointed at something fun!

This week I shot with Kodak 64T slide film and cross-processed it in C-41. Poppies in the Median was my favorite on the roll from the "actual" CotW Week (not Spring Break). Those are on flickr....

This is a lovely view. It takes the eye of the photographer to see it, first!
