In the days of Black & White by 

This image was set up for a challenge

The camera is a Zeiss Ikon given to me by my mother in law. I believe it originally belonged to her brother who emigrated to Canada

I have never used it , I imagine it is now a good 50 to 60 years old.

The photograph is of my parents dating back to a works party christmas 1966

    Magnificent shot and congratulations on the FEATURE! What a very clever idea!

  • I was rather pleased with the result, the lighting was just a lamp on the top of the desk, and an overhead light which helped bring out the detail in the camera
    Thought of the subject set it up took photo all in under 5 mins
    Had to get back to watching England in a world cup fotball match.

    It would be interesting to see the results that old Zeiss camera is capable of Mike, Zeiss lenses were always a mark of quality, a well thought out arrangement, almost a photographic trip down memory lane, congratulations on the feature,
    Regards, Rod.

  • Thanks Rod, I have often thought about trying the camera, but never got round to it
