"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11 ESV)
My Cameras: 1952 Zorki.1c * 1954 Zorki.1d * 1952 Zorki.3 * 1956 Zorki.3M * 1956 Zorki.4 * 1959 Zorki.5. Okay, not "ghosts" really. Just some old Soviet made shooters, rather well traveled after being built at the KMZ plant in Krasnogorsk Russia, near Moscow. They are great fun and still capable of producing much better photos than my artistic talents could ever fully explore. And they’re also in good company with two of their German forerunners and archetypes, "the Cowboys" - my two Barnacks. One is a 1934 Leica.III and the other a 1930 Leica.I that was factory "upgraded" sometime along the way to a Leica.III. Aesthetically, both of these could be described as "beaters" at best, but are still in great condition for fun photography. This is a watering hole of sorts, a place to rest in the shade and share whatever photos all these wonderful old machines create and the inspiration they may arouse.
