June 23, 2012 was World Pentax Day. So, I made sure to get out with my trusty old Spotmatic and a few favorite lenses.

I took my daughter and her friend to a civil war reenactment at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, on the Bolivar Heights battlefield. An eleven year old girl with her friend, out in the heat, at a civil war event. You may be able to guess that I had a very short time window. But, all was not lost. We actually timed our arrival perfectly, with the final cannon blast happening just a few minutes after we arrived.

It's nice to have any reason to get out and shoot a good old camera. World Pentax Day worked for me!
