California Street by Night

Lately I've been experimenting with night photography, using a Kodak Retinette 1A and a Kodak Jiffy folder.

Here are a few pictures I took this week with the Retinette. This camera has one of the sharpest and extraordinarily clear lenses I've ever seen on a 35mm camera. The 45 year old Pronto shutter is very silent and light and helps with taking vibration-free long time exposures.
