These are really good photos - you place the light and focus just so, you catch the expressions, the compositions are just right. And you must be a proud papa and grandpapa!

thanks for the compliments. i am glad i bought that pentax body, and the minolta a5. i am having take-up issues on my praktica, and maybe shutter issues. of course it could be the cold. it was 11 degres farenheit this morning here in the deep south. i shot a roll on the praktica this week in similar conditions (wind chill of 5 degrees F). exposures looked strange ...

Would have that effect as the grease and lubricant starts to solidify ace results though Very Happy

and me! Shocked

my new/old minolta a5 with its leaf shutter seems unaffected by the cold ...

Great images.

I took my MTL50 out in the snow so I hope I don't have the same problems. A handful of shots left on the film yet before I develop it.
