Q: How do I download my original images?

A: Do you know?

The earth is the Lord's and all its fullness. Psalm 24: 1

I replaced my previous entry for this challenge because I prefer the simplicity of this image better. Sometimes it is difficult to determine which entry to use for the challenge but I will keep this one in place. Thank you anyway for the response on my earlier attempt.

I bought this older Yashica camera several years ago from a photographer who was upgrading his equipment, when I purchased his Nikon FE2 film camera at the same time. I am not sure how old it is but it uses 120 film.

Update: I just did a research on this type of camera and here is what I found for when it was manufactured etc.

"The Yashica Mat-124 G was made from 1970 till 1986 and was the last TLR produced by Yashica"

    What a neat vintage camera!! It stands out so well with the orange against the backlighting and the colours are perfect for the theme! (Sorry for the problems posting this prop.. my keyboard went ballistic on me for some reason)

    Thank you for the response .. JanElle, That happens to me sometimes also ...Last night I got disconnected from our dial up system as I was doing something and even after the connection went through I still couldn't get anywhere until I shut the computer off and started over...That is
    frustrating especially when my connection is so slow anyway with having dial up in the country.

    This is a beautiful shot, it fits the theme very well. I love that vintage camera, did you ever get film and use it? You have excellent lighting and a perfect bokeh.

    I did use it years ago, Ann and the negatives were larger than the regular sized negatives..It
    was hard to find film for it later after the company stopped making that kind of camera.
