In this first Episode of ‘Coffee with Jefferson Davis’, I discuss the Minolta SR-7, Yashica MG-1, Zeiss Ikon Contessa, and different black and white films. I talked about the cost of film and different options available to us currently. My favorite is Kentmere 100 and 400. They are just as good as Ilford’s FP4 and HP5, but that is just my opinion. I hope to see Kodak or someone in the states come out with a competitive film. Arista Edu Ultra films are merely rebranded Fomapan films. They do work, and I have got some great results from them, yet they are prone to curling and scratches. The base on the Arista Edu films is very thin and easily scratched. I will have a review of the Contessa up by the end of next week.

Intro to Episode 1 of ‘Coffee with Jefferson Davis’ #podcast. In the intro, I discuss what I’ll be covering from the presidential campaigns, #kennedy24, to #film #photography and #cameras. The first episode will be available on Wed., the 30th.
These are a few of the test shots from the Yashica. I had a blast using it. The lens is sharp and the mint meter has dead on accurate.
On the afternoon of the 22nd day of April 2023, Earth Day, I married my best friend and soul mate. I have been on this incredible planet for a bit over half a century. In that time, I have met many people, but I have never loved someone as deeply as I do my beloved wife. She is truly my other half in almost every respect. When I am cold and logical, she brings warmth and emotion into my life. When I find myself being a bit of a brute, she has a way of melting my heart and softening my rough edges. My beautiful wife possesses a profound understanding of my thoughts without me uttering a word. She truly sees me for who I am and wholeheartedly believes in my abilities, just as I believe in her.
I believe that there are no limits to what she can achieve, and she reciprocates the same belief in me. As Paul eloquently writes in I Corinthians 13:4-8, “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.”
We’ve been happily married for nearly three months! It feels as if it were just yesterday when I watched her walking down that aisle, her countenance radiating beauty and love as we embarked on this sacred journey of matrimony. The memories and emotions of that day still fill my heart with immense joy and gratitude. I am so blessed to have such an amazing woman for a wife. She is my life, my heart, and my joy. I am so grateful for everyone who joined us and helped on our special day. Thank you, all.
