Isolation Photo Project : Day 149

If insanity can be defined as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result, what is living the same day over and over again called? I found myself reading about Fujica 35mm film cameras, and a short while later I was on eBay looking for used Fujica ST801.

According to Ritchie: … I accidentally discovered a vintage Kodachrome recipe for my Fujifilm X100F, based on Classic Chrome.

I was trying to see what crazy looks I could get…
