the four analog shots…

Down below the hill the weather was black and white, so I just took the last four pictures on the Zenit, loaded the briquettes into the car and drove back🙃📷⚫⚪

That Helios again….

Yesterday, in despair, I drove down from our hills due to bad weather. The webcam of the destination city did not offer any better weather. But miraculously, half an hour after our arrival, the sky brightened up and offered me beautiful urban autumn colors. It seems that if I want to see beautiful colorful leaves, I have to leave our nature and go to the city. I took several cameras with me, two with black and white negatives and two with color. Even though the Helios 44-2 was the oldest lens I took with me, it definitely took the nicest pictures.🙃📷

Analog street…

the more I try to find the positive in everyday life, the more I feel like everything is going in the wrong direction. It could use more good news…or at least one.I don’t want to turn water into wine, but to turn bad news into good…

autumn is here…

The weather is supposed to be nice in our area, so hope I will be able to take some nice photos in the still same places (even my English is definitely an experience for you 😁) 🙂🙃📷

under the roof…

During yesterday’s walk in our park, I sat for a while under the roof of the gazebo🙂🙃📷

behind the “ordinary” white birch…

beautiful colors can be found. I put the word ordinary in quotation marks. Birch is perhaps my favorite tree. Maybe because it’s black and white and with leaves it’s colorful🙃🙂📷

a shutter canvas….

In the previous post(Zenit E), you may have noticed the bright spots in the two photos. This effect is caused by damage to the shutter canvas. This means that the canvas transmits light to the negative. Even in home conditions, the repair is very quick and anyone can do it. An ordinary black shoe cream is enough for this. I gently coated the damaged canvas with this cream on both sides, then waited for everything to soak into the canvas. Then I tried the shutter several times at all speeds, cleaned the inside of the camera and blew it out with compressed air.Then all you had to do was insert the film and start shooting. These old cameras that do not need any battery to operate are simply magical.
