I know the saying “a bad workman blames his tools” all too well and I’m so tempted to say “It’s all the fault of the rubbish Zorki 4 I bought” but no, it’s my fault for leaving this a bit later in the month than I should have and not testing the camera first – light leaks, blank frames, and other minor issues meant I ended up only a small handful of usable images. And, for what it’s worth (very little) the Industar lens is probably much better at rendering colours than it is b&w – i suppose that’s something we’ll see in a few months if I can get the mighty Zorki behaving like the great Soviet image maker that it’s supposed to be.
So, excuses over, I now offer up the best (?) of a bad lot.
I pass this windmill every week or two and there’s something about it that always draws my eye … As a structure it’s no Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, but it’s a common enough sight in the Australian countryside; nothing special as far as windmills go, but I like it. I think the rolls of recently cut hay acting as leading lines are perhaps what grabbed my attention this time.
