Back in photography - Rolleicord

Post by Julio1fer » Sat Sep 19, 2020 7:26 pm

After cataract surgery in both eyes, I could get back to shooting. This FP4+ roll was waiting inside the Rolleicord V since February.

Some from a walk in Rodo park. People are coming back to these places, with much caution. I spent all of our winter inside.

Musicians near the lake, getting ready to start.

Pedal boats were the craze when I was a teenager. Ideal vehicle to go with a girl. Glad to see that they are back.

The last one is near my usual hunting place for fishing boats. Access to the fishing boats dock has been closed while Covid-19 rules, a pity. But there is this other place to explore.

Next Sunday we have local elections, maybe I get a 35mm camera to document the action.

Glad your eye surgeries went well, Julio. The docs say I may never have to do cataract removal, but then everything else seems to be breaking down. You still have your fine sense of composition, and excellent choice of subject matter.

Thanks, Alex and PF! I still need to have new glasses made, the old multifocals are useless now.

Eye sharpness improved so much that I can focus a RF without glasses! I will try next my old Retina II.

Thanks Pablo and James! It is good to hear the sound of the shutter once again, and hope that the picture has been captured.
