Apr 25: Hill by Isolette

The first film through the now-complete-and-working early 1950's Agfa Isolette. As I lined this shot up, the sun suddenly shone on the foreground tree making it glow. The Isolette is a very nice little camera. Nearly 60 years old, medium format, fits in a pocket, no meter, guess-the-distance focusing and wind the film 'till the next number appears in the red window. Real back to basics photography.

Oh, that turned out nice. It's always fun to look at that first roll, isn't it?
