Merry Christmas from all of us!
Last year, I bought an earlier model of the Voigtländer Brillant (technically the Brilliant, as the model I bought was the English variant) when I had intended to buy the Brillant V6. This June, I finally got my hands on the V6.
As a lover of vignetting and slightly quirky focus, I found it well worth the wait.

It’s about three miles round-trip from my office downtown, but the long lunch walk is well worth it.
My son exploring the innards of his generic 35mm camera (which actually takes some passable photos).
I found the Official Boy Scout 3-Way Camera at the local antique mall back in late March — I probably shouldn’t have paid $14.50 plus tax for it, but I did. Not the entire kit, as advertised above in the December 1959 issue of Boys Life, but just the camera.
And it still had film in it!
I finished the roll of film in the camera with my son — alas, the photo above, taken in the antique mall, was the only “found” photo that came out. The photos we took at home on the found roll were actually fairly salvageable with only minor digital tweaks.
