The rains have started coming in, though the official date forecast by the Met Office is May 31. They are always off. The light was good and humidity was hanging in the air. I went for a walk to capture the mood. I used the Zorki 2c that I bought from Ukraine. It was dirty and was not working when it came in. It had all the parts in it. The shutter was firing at only one speed. After cleaning and lubricating I found that the stem in the center of the speed selector knob was loose. The knob had to be removed. It reveals a hole in the stem. One has to insert a hard nail or wire through the hole and turn the stem to tighten the thread. That done, all the speeds worked perfectly. The camera was restored to ‘almost new’ condition. This is a bottom loader. I was a little nervous about that. It does not seem very difficult if you cut the film lead patiently and work it in. It is a neat small camera, very handy. I am beginning to like it. I used one of the junk Industars 50 f/3.5 with it today. Here are some samples.
