Baby Bessa

Just some images from my Voigtlander Bessa 46 the“Baby Bessa”.  Using these old cameras does make you think about what you are doing.  There is no point and shoot nature about it. 

As an aside I just had a look on Camera-pedia and saw that the image that is being used for the Bessa 46 is my actual camera.  Someone lifted the image from my website and used it, I know this for certain as the metadata of the picture still has the copyright info my Pentax K-7 embeds in each image, besides the fact that well I just knew I had taken it.  I wish I could remember peoples names as well as I can remember images I shot.  

 To keep the circle going here is the image on Camerapedia, I’m linking to it to amuse myself instead of using my own image, well it is mine anyway and the person who used it has since passed away which is a shame because he obviously loved cameras as much as I do.

    Did you ever contact camerapedia about it? I am rarely surprised when some clueless person makes off with someone else’s work, and sometimes they just don’t know better. But a site that specializes in camera information should know better.

    Nice series of photos. The gloomy low contrast look works really well with that depressed looking area. I couldn’t stop looking at the photos.
