Budapest with a 1936 Contax II by 


Ok, this is a terrible scan, but what can I say, war is hell right? (currently deployed to Baghdad)

The first photo, is from Budapest from my road trip this year with
Kamila. This one is pretty special. I got this camera because my
favorite photographer of all time, Robert Capa, used this type of
camera to capture a lot of his pictures from WWII including the
landing at Omaha beach. Originally, Andre Freidman, he was born and
raised in Budapest before he ventured off to the Spanish Civil war to
start his carreer. So I was very happy to have photographed part of
Budapest with this camera, just a lot of historical significance,
which i really appreciate being a military history major.

I am having a lot of trouble getting consistant photos out of this camera, if anyone has any tips on using these cameras let me know because I am just using tial and error now and I am losing what I think to be a lot of good photos.
