Dad took the photos with Leica M7 and M6TTL cameras, a 35mm 1.4 ASPH lens, using Kodak Tri-X film.

He used ilford Delta 3200 film for the photo of the Bel Air driving by Eddie's Grill in Geneva on the Lake.

Dad develops and prints his own film in a wet darkroom, hand crafting traditional silver prints.

As Dad and Lucky reminisced, Dad - a member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) - made notes with a Pelikan M800 fountain pen.
