Springtime at Main Campus

CNM staff photographer Wade Faast spent the week working with a camera that has been around longer than CNM. Instead of the modern digital camera, Wade took all the pictures seen here with a camera made in 1939 using film that expired in 1956.

Camera: Graflex Speed Graphic 2×3 Press Camera

Lens: Graflex Optar 101mm F4.5

Film: Kodak Pancrhomatic Super-XX

The mobile buildings located next to the KS building parking lot have been sold and are in the process of being removed. Selling for as much as $8,000.00 a piece, Bentley & Associates LLC auctioned off the buildings on February 9, and their website states the portables must be removed by April 15th.
