Sometimes the mundane captures your eye more then the spectacular.
pentax k-1000 dont remember the film(pan 400).
lifeless thai marionette.I think it it someone morbid. These tourist trinkets made by the locals are lifeless and scary.
Taken with a start soviet slr with a helios 44 on ilford pan 400@800 in tetenal ultrafin 1+20. Not bad for a for a 47 year old camera with a 49 year old lens with film I just cant handle.
I traded my canonet GIII QL for a sigma 28/1.8 for my nikon.
I have mixed feelings about the canonet - I think it's a great lens trapped in a shitty camera.I know it has a large following,i JUST DONT LIKE IT (And the 5 element diaphragm is awfull).
The sigma is great-at least according to negatives. It has crazy distorsion which I like. I got the zorki 4 + jupiter 8 (1958) from Oleg Khalyavin and shot 2.5 films through it. I am now considering a jupiter 12
Review will be posted soon.
