Canon Auto Zoom 814 Super 8 Film Camera:

I was just given this Canon 814 Super 8 film camera by my father-in-law for an upcoming project I'm working on. I cleaned it up and decided to shoot it.
I placed it on a glass table in a room where there was a combination of daylight from a window (left) and tungsten (right).
Next I'm going to load it up with a Kodak super 8 cartridge and take a test reel for my upcoming film project. I'll post the best of that footage when it's ready.

"Nuns In Guadalajara"

I took this shot in downtown Guadalajara. What I appreciate about it are the reflections in the marble sidewalk:
