Adventures on Film :: California Science Center

These are the few film shots I managed to capture at the California Science Center when I went to the Cleopatra exhibit earlier this summer, until I unexpectedly finished the roll before we even got into the exhibit. Oops! More from the exhibit here.

{Kodak Ektar 100 film on my trusty Nikon FM and 50mm f/2 lens.}

They have this lovely display of hanging balls (sorry…no other way to describe them!) above a fountain outside the entrance, with changing colored lights. It made for super cool shadows.

This shows where you come out of the Cleopatra exhibit, to a collage of all the different film and stage incarnations.

While we waited for our time slot to see the exhibit, we wandered around the air and space part of the museum. Love that you can see my dad in the background of this shot of the burnt-up bottom of an early space capsule.

It’s a bit out of focus, but this early space suit is too amazing not to share! Two thoughts: 1) how crazy skinny was the guy who wore it; and 2) I want those boots.

Have you guys done any fun day trips so far this summer? Up next for me is an overnight up in the mountains this weekend, so we can actually see the Perseid meteor shower. I’m so excited!
