Minolta SRT-101: My first SLR film camera

Three Speed October 2020: Almost to the third week, and DEADLINES!

Society Of Three Speeds

Hello friends of Three Speeds! The third week of the Three Speed October 2020 Challenge starts Friday, October 9th. For those of you who have been doing rides already, great job!
