The Konica C35 is a compact, inexpensive rangefinder camera from the late Sixties and early Seventies.   It uses standard 35mm film.

Here's a gallery of images taken with the C35.  A few of these are available as framed, unframed, or canvas prints.

An Exceptionally Rusty Tractor

You can see the once-proud letters of FARMALL now have some scratches, long rusted over.  I bet it was one of those early John Deere guys, back in like 1926 or whenever this tractor was current.  (Friends don't let friends drive a John Deere.)

Camera notes:  The 38mm Konica Hexanon lens is pretty good.  Actually it's very good.  There's not really any corner softness or corner darkening, except at the widest apertures.  But that's normal for just about every camera.

Limiting yourself to a fixed focal length seems easier to do with a film camera than digital.  I still don't know why that is.  Maybe because with film, you take your time.   The manual-focus rangefinder enhances that quality.  It's more of a feeling of "Be here now, in the moment."  As a result, you concentrate on what you're doing.  With digital, it's easy to want to shoot 300 pictures at 10 different focal lengths and quickly move on to something else so you can take 300 pictures of that, too.





Road Trip Days

I like faded soda machines that look as if they've been out in the sun since 1982, because they probably have.  But you have to photograph stuff like that with film.  Well you don't have to, but it helps.

The Weather Meets a Crop Field

Storm clouds roll in over a large expanse of crops.  Somehow this is not a dreary scene.  It reminds me of how the air smells right after a thunderstorm in the summertime.

Victory of the Sun

How the sun could be victorious as it's setting can be explained only by this.
