Re: when the tide goes out...

What a fantastic find - it would have made a great entry for the recent "Broken" competition!

That must have spoiled someone's day. The good news is that it wasn't still around the photographer's neck! A great find.

Well photographed, but the camera itself doesn't have the same pedigree as the Hassleblad.

Re: when the tide goes out...

That made me quite emotional in a way only a photographer would understand

Can you imagine how the "dropee" felt

Re: when the tide goes out...

(Before I go any further, just in case anyone minds, I should reveal that these photos were taken with an Olympus half-sibling, the Digilux 3, which at least has innards of genuine Oly.)


I always wanted one of these 500c Hasselblads, still do, even. But conjuring up the free time to get back into film would require magic of some sort. It was awful to view such wreckage. My guess is a boater capsized their dingy or kayak close to shore some years ago and the water was deep enough to make retrieval impossible or impractical. The water is calm here, usually, so these two have laid on the bottom gently. And you're quite right, John, the build of the Hasselblad was challenged only by the expansion of silt build up within; the film door was popped open as a result. I put it in a bucket of vinegar for a week to see what deposits would melt off, then another week in a bucket of fresh water, and now after a month of drying out the water inside the lens is still in there. I've moved on to other projects...

Yes. I am inconsolable if I lose a hotshoe cover.

At least you've got an interesting doorstop/paperweight.
