Why? by walrus


This is why I just had my Leica M6 refurbished by Youxin Ye. I don't know how many exposures got lopped on top of one another here - the camera suffered from winding issues. It could be 3, it could be 4 images exposed on the same frame. I look at the image and remember photographing a buddha at night, and its head ended up about face on the shoulders of a woman sitting in a cafe. All of my ideas blended into an amalgam of madness!
Well, it ended up with an interesting result!

Many years ago, my first SLR (Canon TX) developed a habit of slipping on the film advance... Sometimes a little, ofttimes a lot. Either way too much... But back then (we're talking 1981), the local camera shop said "not repairable". May have been not-cost-justified, but I don't remember.

@lsquared There are not many skilled repairers left, luckily Youxin is only a half hour away from me. He repaired the camera as I watched. Quite amazing.
