Cleaning the garage, I found a 60’es "Comet Bencini" abandoned in a box.
Taking it to clean I noticed that the technology that now we all know it was pure science fiction at the time. You needed to adjust the meters fot the focus and choose the time with a lever that was used for "B"or 1/50.
But those were different times...

Sistemando il garage, ho trovato abbandonata in una scatola una vecchia “Comet Bencini” degli anni 60.
Prendendola in mano per ripulirla ho notato che la tecnologia che ora tutti noi conosciamo era pura fantascienza all’epoca. Bisognava regolate i metri per mettere a fuoco e scegliere i tempi con una leva che si usava per “B” oppure 1/50.
Ma questi erano altri tempi...

    Questo tipo di macchina era molto diffusa, dai costi contenuti ma efficace, con un po' di pratica si ottenevano delle foto accettabilissime. Bella questa tua dedica!!

    This photo caught my eye immediately - perhaps it's because I'm a HUGE fan of narrow depth-of-field...? The framing here is excellent as well, as is the B&W. A very nice shot well done!
