It’s true, we are all ghosts from another time existing today

New York (i think). via Cinema5D

I have an upcoming photography project that needs a vintage look. Initially i was going to shoot it on 4×5 large format film, but found the equipment and processing cost prohibitive.

My friend, a Russian lens technician, who loves nothing more than to frankenstein equipment… found in a box of random parts, hidden inside anther lens this gem. A circa 1908 ( possibly earlier) 35mm lens. Still functioning, mostly brass, and not nearly as much dust or fungus as one would think after sitting in a box for over a hundred years.
