Definitely not in Porto (v)

The Pandora Inn was the perfect 13th century pub-by-a-creek. It burnt down last week. Damn.
St Austell Brewery, who own the building, are talking about rebuilding it.

Camera Porn (i)

Finally managed to take some pictures of my beautiful Yashica Electro 35 GSN. Still waiting for RaúlM's hints on camera porn, though...

You can find the original Yashica "moonlight" ad here at Yashica Guy's website. The camera manual is available for download at Mike Butkus' library of camera instruction manuals (english, german).

Very quiet shutter but louder winding mechanism:

Trivia (III)

Just bought a wrist strap from Gordy's for my S95. Black leather, red thread. Very happy with it. Ordered it on Feb 19, arrived safely on Mar 1. Charge appeared on credit card statement as "PAYPAL *GORDYSCAMER".
Great handmade product, fast int'l shipping from the US. No customs duties or VAT charges, at least in my case. Recommended.
