Thin Film Transitions

In a dusty corner, cleaning collecting back home, ready for the big move, there emerged an old camera. Engraved upon the side were branded the words Zeiss Ikon. Some research determined a vintage of around the 1930's. A grandfather's abandoned toy.

Some film! Old 120 film, medium format, still available knowing the right source. Fumbling through the loading and unsure of outcomes, the old folding body snap snap snaps, all manual, and guestimational focus. An old dog put through the paces once more.

Technology's evolution of the eye. A fossil record.
