Circles of Confusion

This is a beautiful (by my standards) Kodak Retina IIIc which is non-functional only because it's been sitting in someone's basement for most of the past 40 years. I sent it out yesterday for repair, just a severe tune-up really. It should come back good as new and I think it'll make a nice tote-everywhere kind of shooter this summer. Same vintage as the Voigtlander (1954), so now I can be stuck in the 50s, instead of the 60s. It's collapsable though, with a coupled rangefinder, so yeah, sweet.

 

And yes, Mr. Fancy Pants with all the light meters underexposed this one. Oops is all I have to say to that. Portra is so awesome though, it still scanned nicely (by my standards). The thin negative 'wanted' to be reproduced much darker than my liking in this case. It's probably better if I don't think about it too much...

Long 16 hours at work (so really up for 24 hours or so, as usual for Friday night), now ready for bed. You can probably tell I'm a little tired from all the rambling. I'll likely be up by 2 or 3am so will try to catch up with photostreams then, unless Charlie decides to get up with me.

 

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a happy Easter for anyone who celebrates.
