Bicycle Paths Along the Willamette River in Eugene, Oregon

This photo series was inspired by the purchase of a box camera at a garage sale and recalling a citation by Ansel Adams: "For fully half of the photography done in the world, a Kodak or Ansco box camera would be adequate."

Ansco B-2 Cadet Camera
with rotating shutter in front of meniscus lens

Original exposure setting is 1/25 at f16. By covering part
of the circular shutter opening with black electrical tape,
and placing a small washer over the aperture opening,
the exposure setting became 1/125 at f22. This enabled
the use of Kodak T-MAX 400 film with the camera.
