Zorki-4 Photos #6



Last two, I promise. I know I've bored you, but I'm really pumped about how nice this little camera is.

I've ordered some tools and some camera repair books, and hope to use this all-manual Zorki as a ginea pig to learn to CLA (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) cameras. I have an all-manual Canon FT-QL that needs new foam and to be CLAed, and I want to work on it too.

I already learned how to do basic maintenance, adjustments, and repairs on my guitars, so I'm not afraid to take things apart. In fact, as an engineer, I can tell you that's probably the first sign your kid might become an engineer; would he/she rather take toys apart to see how they work than to play with them?

I've just been reading back through your last few Zorki posts. It really does take nice pics :) I particualrly love the one of the leaves and the black and white ones. Very nice.

My dad, a dental surgeon says that I used to play around with his dental tools as a kid whenever i cud stealthily lay my hands upon them.....He took it as an omen that i would follow him to become a doctor myself...Only it turned out that I'm an engineer today!!! :D

I for one have enjoyed the Zorki shots and it sounds like you have good plans for it. I think it takes some great pictures and it was a good find.

Thanks for sharing about it.

What a lovely part of the world you see every day.

So that's how I can spot an incipient engineer, huh? I should have known. A young woman that I used to spend lots of time with used to take all kinds of things apart and then put them back together. And, guess what, she's now an engineer.
