first thing in the morning

March 10, 2011

. . . . . . . . . . . .

hi. a couple more photos from the wonky pentacon. blurry, dream-like … just like things look after waking up in the morning, in those sleepy pre-coffee moments.

. . . . .

also, if you are (or someone you know is) selling a medium-format film camera (working with no problems), please do drop me an email. thanks.

    Captures the tenor of the morning perfectly .. that in between space of slowly joining the day again. Lovely again, Brian.

    You’ve captured “pre-coffee” perfectly.

    This is exactly how I feel in the morning. I kind of love these to be honest!

    I received the Pentacon 6 TL for my b-day this year. It’s a great camera, but I have film overlapping issues with mine. I think it’s all in how the film is loaded. I’m on my 4th roll and my fingers are crossed that it’s loaded properly.

    From the photos you have posted, it looks as though you too have the overlapping issue and light leak? I think the photos look dreamy, though.

    hmmm…precisely how it looks before putting on my glasses for the day…

    I actually have dreams where I can’t see very well, alot like these pictures.

    I like these photos being less than perfect. As for the medium format camera…hmmm….I want one too. You might try Blue Moon Camera and Machine in Portland, Oregon. They have a web site and they deal in used film cameras and offer a warranty to boot. Good luck.

    ahh just like those dreamy moments before I put on my glasses and roll out of bed.

    it’s 8:00 a.m and the second pic has hurt me a lot ;)

    dream-like indeed.
    sometimes the wonky cameras make the most delightful blunders.
    always inspired when i drop by here.
    thanks for doing what you do, brian!
    ps: if you’re ever in zürich, feel free to call on me as a tour guide. i’d be happy to show you around.

    a really beautiful kind of wonky.

    good luck with your camera hunt. i’ve been looking for medium format cameras for over a year and am finding it so difficult to come to a decision.
