    shot with a tlr photina. This one came to me with a jammed lens and an advance clutch that was worn out. Turned out pretty cool after all that.

    fix the camera or shoot the birdbath.

    The camera had to be shot with naphtha to soften the old hardened grease. Then I had to remove the front element of the lens to clean the glass. The the advance knob had a clutch that let you wind it like a ratchet wrench. It was shot so I removed one of the solid rewind mechanizums from an old camera I had cut the lens from. Switching the rewind knobs was more work than difficult. had to enlarge the hole ect no big deal.


    as for the shot it is a tlr camera and hard for me to remember to level the shot so I just rotated it to level then filled in the spot red.

    If there is anything else I can help with please ask this might not have been a very good explaination.
