I shot these photos in Eau Claire (downtown Calgary) along the river.
It’s pretty clear that my Kodak Six-20 Model C has some light leaks. I’m not sure where the leaks originated since I had the camera taped up and my examination of the bellows when I got the camera didn’t reveal any pin prick light leaks. But given the location of the red streaks on the photos, it’s possible that light is leaking in through the winding knob. Alternatively, it could be because 620 film spools do not have as wide a flange as 120 spools and so there is no protection for a ‘fat roll’ when unloading the camera.
Foodie, oenophile, traveler, hockey player, teacher, husband & father. I am many things, but at my core, I am a writer and photographer. Give me a notebook, a camera and a pocketful of film and I’m happy. Going Lomo is where I share my love for film photography, because a photograph not shared, only speaks silence.
I enjoy seeing old cameras like this shot with color film. I’ll bet 95+% of what went through this camera in its day was b/w.
I agree. I’m always curious about the history that these cameras have witnessed, the things they may have photographed. This camera is almost 90 years old. I am thankful that its original owners have taken such good care of it.
