Late summer corn field revisited

After putting them aside for a few months, I have picked up my film cameras again. Compared to digital, they seem expensive and impractical. But I love the experience of using them. And while the result can seem rougher, I feel it also looks more authentic.

This is my current favorite, a Minolta X570 with a 45mm f/2 Rokkor on front.
The camera cost me US$ 70 for the body and I think another 70 for the lens, I could have gotten the lens for less but I was looking for one in really good shape mechanically.
