single frame: Not-so-shining armor


Not-so-shining armor
Yashica TL Electro X
50mm f/1.7 Auto Yashinon-DX
Foma Fomapan 200

This suit of armor stands watch over a shop in Zionsville that sells jewelry and watches purchased from estates. My wife knows the owners and they’re salt of the earth people.

Every time I look back at the photos I made with the Yashica TL Electro X and that 50/1.7 Yashinon, I’m impressed anew.

    Very nice photo Jim! You can almost feel the texture of the armor.

    Good example of how under-rated those Yashica lenses were! Had a few in C/Y mount when I had my Contax, and always thought they were very sharp, and except for coloration based on the T* coating, not much difference between the two brands!
