Camera: Zorki 3C | ISO : 400 | Focal Length: 50.0 mm | Film Make: Kodak Tri-X | 4#30


A little while back I took my Zorki to a small lake that is not too far from here. On that day I was attacked by a bunch of mosquitos, which tends to happen at lakes, and some random woman told me that one of the swans was eaten by a fox recently. Well, the latter rarely happens in a big city like Berlin.

It was roll number 4 and for once the pictures were properly exposed. Turns out that I needed to use the next lower exposure setting with my external light meter. At first I was a bit disappointed with the pictures in this bunch, but the pictures actually started to grow on me. A few of them are really quite nice, like this one here, and a few more needed to be cropped, since I didn’t quite pay attention when taking the pictures. I still have some obvious framing issues, because of the parallax error and the small view finder, but I think my Zorki experiments are getting a bit better.
