Zeiss Ikon, Contina I (d) (526/24-mod), 35mm Camera. Photograph gallery.
Straight in at the deep end for the Contina's first outing - it was taken to Vietnam without ever having a test film put through it. The next three shots illustrate the completely differing way the same sunset looks through the lens of a camera. I couldn't make up my mind which one I preferred....

More or less the standard sunset shot with the bulk of the image under exposed, resulting in completely silhouetted foreground and horizon.

This is a scene across the River Mekong as it winds through Ho Chi Minh City, the river is heavily industrialized and a rather muddy hue during the day, but manages to look quite enticing here.

just a minute or so after the sun has disappeared, with the aperture opened up to that suggested by the meter

Another couple of minutes later and this time opening up a little more than the meter suggested.

two girls illuminated by the light from a grass fire

These two girls illuminated by the light from a grass fire caught my attention as I was walking back from watching the sunset. The exposure was a wild guess, but worked out about right.
