So, about two weeks ago, I went to the Garden and tried out my Diana Lens. It was a fabulously perfect evening– the sun was starting to set. I was experimenting with my Diana Lens and LOVING it. Seriously. I was sitting in the Japanese Garden in my favorite little spot and was shooting the sunset across the little lake. Absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to get the pilings next to the shore in the shot along with the sun reflecting on the water– I got one shot and as moved to get closer– PLOP! the Diana Lens fell right into the lake!!!

Fortunately, I fished it out of the lake (it floated!) I think it’s okay. It’s all plastic– there are no mechanical parts to be damamged… I haven’t tried it out yet–it’s been drying on a towel all this time.  I’m going to try it out this weekend. Please keep your fingers crossed that it still works and looks okay!

Here are some other shots I took with that lens (prior to dropping it in the lake!) See what I mean? Don’t they look so dreamy? Look at those fabulous sun flares!

this beauty is one of my newer vintage camera purchases. i love this little guy. He takes 620 film, but i can (if i’m SUPER careful) respool some 120 film and use that.
This may be a project after I get the 120 film I used in my Diana developed…

this is my mom’s old yashica electro 35 camera. it’s still in fairly good condition– with the exception of corroded battery acid in the battery chamber, and a small dent on the lens. if i fiddle with it just so, I can get the telephoto and wide-angle lens to stay on. As long as I don’t need the flash, the camera works just fine!

i think this is a sickness, this sudden obsession with vintage cameras. Let’s not talk about the two that I bought today… or the one cute little guy I bought earlier this week… or the three that I bought myself for christmas… or even the ones that have been generously gifted to me… um… yeah… they make pills for this, right?
