a few days ago I found the old “friend” of my grandfather, wasn’t the only friend that I have found but now I show you this (a Contaflex Super B Zeiss Icon), you like?  My intention is to put it back to work with a wonderful black and white film. In the second picture I wanted to dedicate the background to “Sleeping Beauty”, taken from the book “Walt Disney, the art of animation” from 1960 (I found it in the library of my mother). Will I be able to awaken the sleeping beauty of my grandfather? (Hi grandpa, I hope that you can read this post dedicated to you).

qualche giorno fa ho trovato una vecchia amica di mio nonno, non è la sola che ho trovato ma per ora vi mostro questa (una Contaflex Super B Zeiss Icon), vi piace? La mia intenzione è di rimetterla all’opera con una stupenda pellicola in bianco e nero. Nella seconda fotografia ho voluto dedicare lo sfondo a “La bella Addormentata”,  immagine presa da libro “Walt Disney, l’arte dei cartoni animati” del 1960 (ho trovato questo libro nella libreria di mia madre). Riuscirò a risvegliare la bella addormentata di mio nonno? (Ciao  nonnino spero che anche tu possa leggere questo post che ho dedicato a te).

    Very good.
    I have started a little project where I use old folding cameras (medium format).
