The Bended Back

This was from the part of the trip when I lost the focusing screw on the Argus C3. I could still focus it in the rangefinder, but the lens itself was uncoupled from everything and it went wherever it thought best (usually just a bit shy if infinity).

This rendered most of the shots off and blurred. Yet, with this film, they’re still somehow a bit appealing to me. Sure, your stuffy, uptight photographer will scoff, but they’d also scoff at using a C3 and/or Soviet film from 1975. They’re horrible, soulless creatures.
