Rolleiflex TLR

I've got to say I was surprised that so many people know about the sari. 

 

Moving on, next one from the Singapore National Museum, a twin lens reflex. This, to me at least, is more familiar compared to my other post. I did not do much for the noise. This is the slowest I can hold my hands steady and the ISO is just about maxed out. The colour version looked ghastly, hence the black and white.

You have done it well, Ayush

Grainy, monochrome seems like an appropriate style for the portrait of an old instrument.
Silly - you... Aren't there more Indians the world over than any other ethnic group? smile
I love this photograph, the photo itself looks as old as the camera - sometimes difficulties work out well!
Nearest I got to one of these was the Russian Lubitelgrin
Wise choice for BW Ayush, adds character to the shot!
All the "big boys" used to use these, they cost so much they were but a dream for the average man in the street.
Back when cameras were works of art...
It was my wish to own one when I was young.

A camera that my father would have liked so much - he was a keen photographer from a very early age until his death
