Skip back to a couple of months ago. I was rummaging through the closet where I found some analogue cameras stashed. Most of them where very basic point and shoot cameras but amongst them was also a Yashica GS. Nice retro look and good quality lens, but my brother told me he had taken the camera to a shop last year where they told him the camera wasn’t of much use as they no longer produced batteries for it. Early ending of the Yashica adventure.
Skip to a couple of weeks ago. I met Mike and the next day I noticed he was using a Yashica GSN. He let me in on the secrets and explained to me how to use it with and without (as he does) a battery. Later that week I got my Yashica out when meeting up with Tish and Izzy. I didn’t really read much on it and I wasn’t even sure I had loaded the film correctly but working with the camera felt rather good.
Skip to today. My mom passed by the drugstore and picked up my prints while she was at it. I didn’t expected too much from it because by now I realized I made some fatal mistakes on both shutter speed timing as choosing the ISO. But between the many blurry and underexposed pictures there were some promises of what could happen when Yashica and I get to know eachother a little better.
Looking forward to go Yashica shooting with Mikey when he’s back in Europe, even if it means I’ll have to wait until February.
