DSC_3043-2

Last week I wrote a post about the Urban Decay that i faced in my walk down to Neo Faliron. I intentionally left out of my post all the “good” , “normal” or “expected” street shots that I took as I walked around the triangle of Faliron, Peace & Friendship Stadium and Karaiskaki. Here are a few photos that i took with my D3200. I really enjoyed the beautiful graffiti that you could see almost everywhere, some where in my eyes fantastic.

I finally developed a roll shot with the Nikon FM10,that I had acquired last month. I wanted to have the camera tested so I used Kodak ProImage 100 that I had bought in bulk. I only had done an experimental development in B&W chemistry Rodinal semi stand.I was eager to get the results and since the shooting took place In a cloudy to rainy day in the woods I wasn’t so optimistic.I had pushed my luck,low ISO,low light and handheld. Here are the results.

The FM10 is not actually manufactured by Nikon itself, and is not a true member of the Nikon compact F-series SLRs, as the name implies. It is manufactured by Cosina in Japan[1] (as are both the lenses), and is derived from the Cosina CT-1 chassis.
