Jeannette la Canonette

Friday, December 9, 2011

Voilà, j'ai un nouveau bébé. I mean a new old baby, I bought a canonet almost two years ago, I put it on my fireplace and never dared to shoot with it. Because it is a rangefinder, because it works differently, because you can mess up a roll so easily, because it is so different and therefore challenging. But I wanted to give it a try, so I put a black & white roll in it and shooted without thinking. I was expecting nothing from this roll. And Gosh, I love this single shot. La Victoire de Samothrace, Le Louvre on a cloudy day.
Don't laugh at her name, Mauricette was in the mind for like 5 seconds... Mais c'était un peu too much...
