Still life with Yashica

Looking through some scans from earlier this year, this shot jumped out at me from the very first roll of 120 film I shot in my Super Ricohflex. I like the composition and strong contrast. Funny how looking back later at a roll of shots can reveal ones that you didn’t pay much attention to at first.

    I really like this shot. There’s something…a bit surreal about it.

    I too have a Yashica Electro 35. And (bonus) I had it repaired and serviced by one of the original assemblers of the camera in Japan, circa 1972 (I have a picture of him assembling one of the Electro’s in 1972). He still repairs/services these cameras to this day. He lives in Marietta, Georgia. He IS the ‘Mr Miyagi’ of Yashica cameras.

      Hi Alex. Thanks for your comment!
      Would you like to share the name of your Yashica repair person? I’d love to share that with other readers.
      Rick
