    Little Church of Pampulha

    “It is not the right angle that attracts me, neither straight line, tough, inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve, in the course of its winding rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds of the sky, in the body of the preferred woman. From curves is done throughout the universe. The curved universe of Einstein.” Oscar Niemeyer

    Be Lomo Chajka II Half-Frame camera

    This is a half-frame camera, 28mm (f2.8-16.0) focusing lens. Close focusing to 3 feet. PC contact, cable release connection and tripod socket. Exposure is strictly manual with no built-in meter or exposure guide. The shutter release button is on the front of the camera. It had a nice little film speed reminder on the bottom of the camera, but some people are confused by this and think that the camera has some sort of built-in meter! Despite its proto-typical flaws, it is a well-made camera.

    Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim

    The Vivitar Ultra wide and Slim is a pretty basic camera. It’s a small piece of plastic fully set (as in set aperture f11, a 1/125 shutter speed and fixed focus from 5ft to infinite) don’t have the fun bulb features, hot shoe, multiple exposures and don’t use any kind of battery, it’s a great camera to be used only in sunny days!
