Retirement Reconnaissance Trip No. 5: Bloomington, Indiana

Back in February I flew to Indianapolis, Indiana, and then drove to Bloomington, home of Indiana University. I was on what I call a “retirement reconnaissance mission.”

We’ve done a few of these trips now (Madison, WI; Portland, ME; the Twin Cities, MN; Pittsburgh, PA) and Bloomington was the final one. This time I went by myself, which meant that I could fool around with film and cameras as much as I liked without worrying that I was holding things up.


These photos are from my wanderings around downtown Bloomington and the IU campus. To see the entire roll, please visit The 2014 52-Rolls Project: Roll 05 set.

For this roll I used a vintage Diana camera loaded with Rollei Crossbird film. I ALWAYS end up with a fat roll when I use the Diana, but I don’t really mind. In fact, I kind of like it!
