Once in a while, one of my old posts gets shared on Facebook and picks up a bunch of views. So it went a couple weeks ago with a 2012 post about the great public square in Paoli, a Dixie Highway town in southern Indiana. Out of nowhere, it got about a thousand views over a few days.
That day I shot my Pentax ME with the 28mm f/2.8 SMC Pentax-M lens. It was my first time shooting that lens — and also Kodak Ektar 100, a film that disappointed me a little on this cloudy day for the muted colors it returned. Still, I like this shot a lot, as it captures this stunning courthouse so well. Since then I’ve come to appreciate Ektar’s good qualities, especially on a bright day with vividly colored subjects.
