show up with a muzzle loader,

I shot some "red scale" film, probably expired years ago but came with a package deal, and then I respooled it onto a cassette and loaded it into my FG-20.

I spotted these geese that I often saw in the park while working the other day, so I decided to get a shot with them flying in the air. I metered off the grass and set the camera to manual mode with that exposure (maybe there's a better spot to meter off of?) I prefocused with my usual 28mm 2.8E and then ran towards the geese, litterally scaring the #### out of them. I kept running, snapping and winding as fast as I could. As they took off I thought about how I'd seen a video taken by some dude with an F5. That would have been nice to have. Those geese are pretty darn fast when they are dumping excess weight like mad.



After this, I decided to shoot something a bit slower. It was a bit underexposed, but I tried to save it with my scanner.
