Canon 7 – closed the deal
I closed the deal on the canon 7(+J-8 for the time being).
I sold the Pentax K1000+50/2A SMC. I liked it, but I need to clear some space and get some money for the RF lens.
Now I am looking for a 35/2.8 canon or 35/2.5 voigt.
Wouldn’t mind getting some sort of never ready caselower half of it for the canon.
Got anything to offer me?
New RF – Canon 7
Today I learned the Bessa R2 was sold to someone faster so I searched RFF and found a sweet deal on a canon 7. Will close shipping stuff tomorrow and will get it in a week or two.
Will use something russian on it until I get the cash(for a canon 50/1.8 or 35/2.8). Woohoo !!!
Its important to know who wears the stilletoes in the house
Visited a recently married (male) friend.
I sold the Zorki + halfcase +j8 +j12 +Helios VF,canonlite D to a gentleman from RFF.I am now 60$ away from a Bessa R2+ canon 50/1.8. The pentax K1000 is being looked at by a guy from work. If he buys it(for 60$) I will get the RF I want(and can afford unlike a leica).

Monstrous constructs hang heavily over us

Bessa RI sold the Summitar to a gentleman from RFF, I will offer the pentax k1000 and zorki with j-12 and helios VF on RFF and Nelsonfoto soon enough. I Want a Bessa R(or bessa R2 if I get enough money from all of the above). I will use the j-8 until I can get something nicer(j-3?) and really considering the color scopar 35/2.5. Maybe a j-9 in the future.
Tel Aviv series – part 2
Camera porn. With original flashbulbs and reflectors. hhhhhhhhhm.
A cat leaving a seedy (meat oriented) fast-food joint – I say it barely escaped , Anna says it just had lunch there as a client.
The Che Guevara girl – I took 2-3 pictures around her until she got used to me enough for me to ask her to hold the Che poster. This is one of the discarded images,which at second glance looks appealing. She is deep in her own world cut away from the clients. Anna sees the image cut into three bits,the hand,the girl and the window reflection.Hm. A Tel-Aviv welcome. One of them nice old side street entrances I love.
Watched “Little Miss Sunshine”(brilliant) and “I Walk The Line”(average).
