Electro 35 CC - Mabry Mill In November

One of the attractions along the Blue Ridge Parkway is Mabry Mill in Floyd County, VA. Itís closed for the season now, but one can still do a walk around of the grounds to get a sense of what life was like back in those times.

A couple of days after Thanksgiving, I loaded up the Yashica Electro 35 CC rangefinder with Kodak T-Max 100 to get some photos of the place. Not much has changed since my first visit many years ago. I should have used a yellow filter on the lens as it was somewhat hazy cloudy, but that was easy enough to fix in post with a contrast boost. Other than that, no other corrections were made except to straighten the horizon on a few images. I think the bright frame lines mask is slightly askew in the viewfinder. Or maybe my right eyeball is crooked.

Nice shots. Haven't used my CC since I cleaned its viewfinder sometime earlier this year.

Too much busy shooting the Bessa-R...I dislike its plastic covers and loud shutter sound (CC is metal, and quiet), however the Bessa eats one roll after another...

the camera looks to be overexposing a bit.

They don't look quite as good on here as on other sites.

You are probably not as level-headed as you used to be. ,:-;
