I said be careful his bow tie is really a camera.

This is Jett, my bf. He found the Yashica cam lying around in his house one day when he decided to have a garage sale. Apparently, after much online research on the cam, it was the IT cam way back in 1968 when it first came out. Problem was, it was on a 7V mercury battery, and mercury batteries were banned in 2000 for environmental issues. Plus, the alkaline batteries sold now are smaller than the battery required for the cam. But, when there's a will, there's a way. He just bulked up the alkaline battery with some tin foil.

We haven't really figured it out yet, though. Still having trouble with focusing. The rest of the photos were crap. But I posted my faves and the ones that I took.
