Day #361

Day #361Title: Relic Of The Cold War
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Self-timer
Notes: That’s the camera, not me! This is my Zorki-6 1960 Soviet Rangefinder 35mm camera which I hope to be using in my Retro365 project next year. I need to run a test film through it first, so that I know I can “trust” it with daily shots (after all, you can’t see the results until it’s too late to take another when using film!). An eBay bargain, it arrived from Ukraine on Christmas Eve. Perfect timing.

Day #167

Day #167Title: Remembering Valentina
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: 51 years ago today, Russian Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space aboard Vostok 6. I’ve always found space travel captivating, and I’ve had this book on the subject for years. I thought it would help celebrate the anniversary in an appropriate fashion. I was pleased to see she was involved with the 2014 Olympics Opening Ceremony in Sochi, carrying the Olympic Flag.
