stroll around berlin potsdamer platz, with a takumar 50mm f4 makro lens (1971 SMC model) mounted on a digital camera body

two 9x12 contact prints of malschuuel, switzerland - where i’ve spent a few days last year, taking photos and generally enjoying the place.

(getting ready to mail those prints away)

that 1920s zeiss ikon donata camera is not in the best shape: the focusing ruler thingie (which one might have used to focus without using the ground glass, i imagine) is totally off - and the shutter doesn’t close again, for most speeds.

so every now and then i wonder if shouldn’t rather sell it … especially since i own yet another 9x12 folding camera from that era (for which i sadly still haven’t found fitting film holders).

it recently occurred to me that i’ve never posted pretty pictures of my canon ae-1 camera (and the two canon fd lenses that go with it).

(last year i’ve replaced the light sealing of this camera, since then it seems to work perfectly again)
