Today's project: Minolta X-9 manual focus SLR from the 90's.

So I have to admit, I didn't try too hard on today's photo.  I had brought out my two old film SLRs to use a decoration in my house since they aren't getting any use and are collecting dust in a drawer and decided to take a couple pics.  

This camera is one of the last models Minolta made before going to an automatic focusing system.  One of my husband's friends gave it to me along with a bunch of lenses.  Unfortunately it doesn't function and the lenses are scratched and unusable.  But I love the style and shape . . . much different than the DSLRs of today.  

Now . . . to think of what I'm going to for tomorrow's pic . . .
