Adventuring Zeiss

For my birthday this year, my dad and sis bought me a host of vintage cameras, insistent that I begin a collection. Justin and I have been adding to it already. My favorite so far (which dad was tearful to part with) is the Zeiss Ikon. We snapped a bunch with it in Vancouver BC and the rest around our leafy new neighborhood.... it's fall!










And a few new limited edition Steep Street postcards to admire...

What a great idea. I love the shots you have taken so far. what kind of film did you use? I miss shooting film. love the new cards as well!

I just saw the prints from that vintage camera and gasped. Please tell me you printed those yourself! (And then I'll be jealous because I don't have access to a color printer anymore.)

Lovely work, and the new cards look fantastic!

I got the embroidered piece at House of Vintage on hawthorne... its framed and in the hallway now! I love how on the back in scrawly handwriting, it says,

"To Dad From Jerry & Georgene & Elizabeth XMAS 1979"

You MUST go check out their shop... it's like a maze of cheap, vintage deliciousness!

Awesome! Great photos and great collection.
This may sound depressing but I don't mean it to be: You guys make me feel like I wasted all my kid free time doing stupid things. I wish I would have spent it being more creative.
You definitely give me something to work toward!

Wow, who uses film cameras any more? Especially a true classic like a Zeiss!?? Great stuff... you continue to amaze all of us who are ardent fans of photography and artistic imagery.
In amazement,

love the vogue-y feel and the emo light. I feel like I am witnessing some event, or catharsis. Feels so personal, but not awkward.
...Dude.

where did you get the film developed for that camera? I have a huge collection of vintage camera and I always like to shoot with them when I get them but can't find a palace to get them developed!!

These photographs are amazing, Kelty! I have a love for old cameras that use actual film - when I took photography classes, I don't think many people could conceive of digital work . . . so, if you wanted to experiment with your vintage cameras for our wedding, I'd be totally okay with that . . . I'm just sayin' . . .

Hi Kelty,
I love these, so much. Your style rules, just love it. I just recently acquired a pen pal. I know right! we are going to write honest to goodness real live letter, like with a pen. amazing. anyway, I wondered what kind of paper you print on?
