I loaded my first roll of 120 Portra 160 VC film into my new Yashica Mat 124G this morning. So exciting. My goal is to shoot two rolls of film this weekend and take them in for processing on Tuesday so I can see some results.

The ground glass viewfinder on this thing is so vibrant and beautiful. Looking through it at a colorful scene is a wonderful experience. I’m in love.
