For an Old-Time Snack

Established in 1925, the Lexington Candy Shop is one of the few traditional New York luncheonettes remaining, a place where the lemonade is still freshly squeezed. I’ve been going here since 1979 when the original owner still ran it and very little has changed. It is now run by his son. Lexington Avenue @ 83rd Street, New York City.

The Olympus Trip 35 film camera, which was produced from 1967 to 1984, works amazingly well for low-light photography using 400 ISO film. The automatic exposure will lock under low-light conditions, but in most cases you get a perfect exposure setting the camera to manual f2.8. The shutter will fire at 1/40 sec. giving you no problems hand-held. Here is an example taken in the food court at Union Railroad station in Washington DC.
