Found on AM Radio's photostream, this gallery shows some of the remarkably nostalgic images made by connecting a 1917 Series III Kodak 127 camera to a Pentax k10d DSLR.

The Pentax is run in manual mode and takes care of the shutter and film speed while the aperture is controlled by the antique lens. The antique lens, thankfully is not moldy, and has a full shutter open mode called T and is kept open while shooting.
