Show your photos from a vintage folder

I got a folder bug again, so it's time to dust off my Weltur and put it to some good use. So, how about some inspiration - would be nice to see some pics.
Here is mine, from Welta Weltur. Not a very recent, but just to get this thread started:

Great Photos! Looking at these I wonder why old folders are so underrated. One more from Weltur with Xenar 2.8:

Agfa Super Isolette - 75/3.5 Solinar

Old folders are ideal for landscapes, and a little bit fiddly for people photography.

Roger Hicks rides a motorcycle. He'd appreciate the homemade trailer hitch on the rear, in addition to the substitute rear wheel.
