    I found the attached photos in the users manual that accompanied a Prakticaflex FX 35mm camera I'd purchased at a local antique store. It came with a camera case loaded with accessories.

    The camera had belonged to the deceased Japanese father-in-law of the store owner. I scanned these photos and returned the originals to a surprised and very thankful owner. Neither he nor his wife knew they existed. No one had inventoried the camera case apparently.

    They were taken circa 1953, probably when the Prakticaflex was new. The lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar at F2.8, 50mm.

    I thought someone would enjoy seeing the Hiroshima Peace Garden about 9 years after the war. The first photo was the conservatory building that served as Ground Zero aiming point for the B29 pilot.

    The camera itself is real interesting as it is a 35mm SLR but has a popup viewfinder like a Rolleicord or Flex. Even has the close up magnifier for fine focusing. I guess that the Germans hadn't recovered their glass making industries enough to make the prisim viewfinders found on later models. I do have the mirrored top mount viewfinder that simulates the later prism'd models. It was in the case too.

    Ok, OK, you've got me going now.

    The first one I took on the Royal Palace grounds in Bangkok in 1969 with a Rolleicord Vb. The yellowish tint was caused by heat and overexposure to airport XRay I think. Most of my negatives from this trip came out with odd tint.

    Second and third were taken with a Fujifilm 3800 digital camera.

    The last was too but it shows why my wife is so mad with me for collecting "junk" cameras. This only represents about half of them, others are hiding in drawers and boxes under my computer desk. I keep threatening to take photos of her jewelry drawer, she quiets down then.
