Very nice photos.  You captured the flavor of the day.  You did a good job
of capturing  a sample of the various types of people around you.  Lots of
great expressions too.

I had to wonder how do you remember those exposures and lenses.  I'm sure it
helps to develop and scan your film right away.  Do you keep a little
notebook?  I have enough trouble remembering what lens I use!
