At the Conservatory







I've attempted four or five times to clean up my old Contaflex 1. The last try seems to have gotten the shutter and aperture mechanisms functioning properly. I like these pictures mostly for that, but I was also pleased with the tonal qualities obtained from the C41 Kodak film.

That first macro shot is one to kill for. Awesome.

Thanks, Julio. That one was done with the 0.2m close-up lens from the set of four I have for the Contaflex. I like using the little supplemental diopter-type lenses as they don't rob any light the way that lens tubes do. I also have a set for my Spotmatic which I also use often.
