When you first see this structure at Waveland in Lexington, KY, it looks like the top of house on a hill. I’ve never been in this one, but it’s probably brick-lined like similar ones from this era.

I purposefully pointed into the sunset to see what kind of flareĀ (or flair) this little gem would have. Yashica Electro 35 CCN-Ilford Delta 100, Perceptol 1+3

At Waveland, a historic mansion and grounds on the outskirts of Lexington, KY.

I just bought this Yashica Electro 35 CCN wide (black). Holy crap what a great lens and fun little camera. I cleaned the battery contacts, cleaned the rangefinder glass inside and out, and put new seals in it. I love its size and weight – not too heavy, and not too light. It’s about an inch and a pound lighter than the full-size Electro 35 (in my unscientific judgement). I think, though it will require more testing, that the meter is off by about a stop (or my developer might have been weak as it was nearing the expiry date). I will happily run more rolls through this camera to determine it’s correct exposure adjustment.
