"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, …”
(Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB)
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.
