A second FE2 in the mail headed my way!
Well, getting ready for a film photography workshop with several younger folks here in town and I am supplying FE2 cameras for them to use! The first one was donated by a dear friend in Alabama. The second one, I am struggling to get the cash to another friend by the end of the week, meanwhile he is putting it in the post office tomorrow for shipping.
If I cannot get a third FE2 in time for the class in a month, then, I will most likely borrow a third FE2 if I can find one or trade a kidney.
Either way, these younger folks (in their 20s) are anxious to learn a little about photography and I decided to give them an opportunity to learn with Nikon cameras using slide film and a roll of black and white.
They are excited, and I am only too happy to offer this first class free of charge. We will have the class sessions at the local pizza pub in my neighborhood along with eats and focusing fluid. Can't wait!

Thanks for the well-wishes. I always enjoyed teaching at university but since I am no longer employed at all, it will keep me in touch with the younger folks that are eager to learn.
Supplying them with a free camera to use is a cool way to provide them with an experience they most likely would not choose because digital is what everyone else does and they already have cameras in every electronic gadget they have whether it be the phone, tablet, or other device. So, yeah, this is my way of sharing a little bit of hard-earned knowledge. Knowledge about photography but with a bit of historical significance and experience using vintage cameras.
It is not much, but it is the least (and the most)I can do.

A great way to pass on the joy of photography! I teach the Boyscouts Photography Merit Badge the boys always get a kick out of using an old time film camera as they call it.
Best of luck I hope you and the kids enjoy the class.

I will use film until the last roll and last lab are gone. Go Navy
