A Place for Birdsong

a-place-for-birdsong

I thought I had left my Werra in Paris when I flew there a few weeks ago for lunch, but I didn’t.  Lucky me!  I found it this afternoon, and that inspired a hunt through the archives for some images I took last year when it first arrived in my hot little hands, all fresh and shiny from Holland.  I currently have it loaded with Fuji Natura 1600, for night work (maybe I will try it for the super moon on the 13th or 14th).

This is one lovely little camera, and a very, very odd one.  It’s a rangefinder, with all controls on the lens, including cocking the shutter and advancing the film.  The lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm, f2.8, and as you can see, it renders wonderfully sharp images.  I’ve got a bunch of colored lens filters, for b&w work, so once the current film is used up, I’m going to try some Acros 100 or Delta 100.
