Not so long ago I came across with old fashioned analog Agfa Billy-Clack that was manufactured back in 1937. It is the later, 74. model. It has three apertures values f/11, f/16 and f/22 and two exposition time options – a dot and a dash, where the dot is around 1/30 or 1/40 s and the dash as much as you hold it. The camera uses 120 mm film, which is one of the rare survivals and still in production – as a black and white. And, you have to be careful, how are you going to use those 8 shots available in the film.

So, here are some street photography shots taken in spring 2013 in Ljubljana, through the camera from 1937. I definitely know, what parallax means now :)
