A Test Film For A Rollei B35

I really must get some drawing done sometime but I have been having a lot of fun playing with old cameras. This time I think I've found the ideal camera for exploring the world in monochrome and learning how to render it in ink, I now have a Rollei B35 camera from the period between 1969 and 1975. The Rollei 35 series were the first ever compact cameras and this one is still smaller than my mobile phone.

So I took it out and about and shot some photos in Ilford HP5+ and got some of the best exposed and sharpest negatives yet.. and this camera doesn't have a focus aid - you set the distance manually. Here are some of the photos. I have made no corrections to these, they are just as they came out of the camera.










One sunny day and one rainy day.
