Roll 21: Rangefinding Around Seattle and Portland

Film: Kodak 100 T-Max

Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3A with Skopar 35/2.5

This camera makes me very happy.  I love shooting with it, I love its simplicity and I really like what I get from it.  The Skopar 35mm lens is very fun to shoot also – all in all, a solid combination for shooting 135.

I carried the R3A around for a few weeks and shot a variety of subjects and locations.  The Kodak B&W might have been a decade past prime, but it worked predicably and returned fine results.

One thought on “Roll 21: Rangefinding Around Seattle and Portland

  1. I had the same lens for my R2 and I loved how small the combination was. Obviously the results were also quite nice. But oh, the build quality of the camera. :/ And now that it’s been a while since it’s gone I of course want to have it again. 😉
