I'm done! And what a perfect way to finish, with something that represents what I'm most passionate about. View the entire set.

 

This is a Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder camera that was a gift to me from a friend. According to him, his brother bought it somewhere in the Pacific when he was in the military. There were several models of the Electro 35, and this one was sold from 1971 to 1977. It's in excellent shape and still has the leatherette case. See the comments for more detail shots. It's a very pretty little camera, very nicely made. I've never used it because the batteries are no longer made. I've read in several places on the internet that you can use a different kind of battery that requires a few modifications to make it work. I'm not sure I'm ready to do that!
