    The Sunday Markets also provide a wide selection of local artisan works. Wood is a big weakness of mine. Same data as the chocolates. Bill 2k19-022-005 ces13 bc bm 4x6.jpg

  17. I was out last weeken once with the Werra/50mm Tessar and the next day with the Yashica TL Electro w/28mm Tokina. Both had filters a green filter on the Werra and a Yellow on the 28mm Tokina Not sure what I did sooo wrong. I metered one stop as filter factor and given the usual latitude for B&W film I get good or good enough results. Well it wasn't exactly a disaster, but both rolls were badly overexposed. I developed same in D76 1:1. The only new chemicals were the fixer. So I have no good explanation...other than the usual YMMV or Murphy, or if it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. I'll leave the Werra out but here's a few barely passable images from the TL Electro which I got for song.... I bought it for the case... 6,99 or something silly. I need another M42 camera like I need a hole in the head... That said. It's familiar in the feel and use to the other later Yashica SLRs I've used. The Tokina is ok and it'Ssthe only 28mm/M42 I have. Have you seen the prices for the F----gon?

    Morning all. Chuck, a "scratch" line is showing up in all your photos. Check the pressure plate for crud build up. My Fed's are prone to this after about 10 rolls or so. Just use your finger nail along the transport axis. . .it will be small, very small. Good luck & Aloha. Bill
