First Place
It was a cold and drizzly Monday the week before Christmas.

Looking for some Holiday Spirit, I loaded up a favorite Argus C4.

I headed over to the area of downtown Kirkwood, Missouri, near the Farmers' Market and the Railroad Station, and shot hand held with available light.

Then later here at home I tried a few setups with flash.

Both photos were taken at our Festival of Trees event that Pam organizes as a fund raiser for our Cultural Centre here in Minden Ont.

The camera I used was an STL1000 with Fuji 400 ISO film. The photos were taken in the early evening with an exposure of 3 sec at f8.

We had an unexpected snowfall on Christmas Eve, then more right after Christmas, which made for great photo opportunities.

The film was 200 speed Fuji I had stashed in the freezer.

The mini-snowman was photographed on Christmas eve evening.  Existing light, hand-held 1/10 second.

The house and outside decorations was taken after a later snowfall.  Probably f/16, perhaps 30 seconds?

The snow covered, white lit tree was also taken on Christmas eve.  Also probably f/16 and likely 30 seconds.
