Outstanding.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

Good results, Julio. The lens has its own character.

Julio, you've brought a good camera back into use with the Tenax I that you found and restored. It has quite a straight-forward look to it (the film advance might be puzzling till it was explained) and it was able to capture the charm of the area you visited very well. It reproduced the texture and feel of the restaurant/wine bar facade effectively. I can imagine that an earlier owner was trying out a "miniature" when that size and format were new.

Thanks for the kind comments! The camera is quite capable, considering its age and ancestry. With modern film, these cameras deserve an extra life.

I know nothing about the original owner, but these were not common cameras down here. Most likely the camera was bought abroad and brought to the country in person by its owner.
