Weapon of Choice: Un-named Smith-Corona Silent.
Eww, dirty slugs! Various markings on the slugs.
The Remington Art Gothic Typeface. Yay, you can actually read the slug markings now!
Finally, I can take photos that show how completely rust-free Little Jake actually is. Not bad for a machine built in 1933.
Maybe next one will have an EF 75-300mm or 50/1.8 lens on it. A boy can always dream! :D

Obligatory cute cat pic. Number Six at rest. ISO 1600, long exposure.
Update: I just found this hack for this exact older kit lens that turns it into a hypercharged macro lens, just by removing the front glass ring. If I get tired of this $14.99 lens the way it is, I will probably try this out. I will definitely do so if I find another just like it.
