If my folks would knew this...they would probably block my bank account.
But I live on my own, am (extremely) old and (very, very) wise enough to calculate the amount of money on my bank account before investing in luxury needs and the daily primary needs like grocery shopping.
I´ve been thinking of getting an antique TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) camera like a Rolleiflex. But after doing research, I´ve found out there were a lot of different models. One of ´m is the Yashica.
I found this baby on the weekly bookmarket in Amsterdam on Art Square ´t Spui. Definitely one of my favorite spots in Amsterdam.
I couldn´t believe my eyes, because the day before I did research about TLR camera´s...alllll day long. What a coincidence.
The Yashica B (1957!) came with the extremely rare (green!) box, a yellow filter, a leatherbag (leather from the outside, and sexy red silk from the inside) with a small bag attached to it (for the yellow filter). And there was another tiny leather bag, for the lightmeter!
Viewfinder. When making a picture, you have to place the camera against your belly and look through the lens from above.
Hopefully, in the near future, I hope to make pics like these ones...!
Some people have even switched from digital to film. Yes. Back to the ol´ school analogue!
