Other than one roll of film just to make sure the thing worked, this was my first time experimenting with my “new” vintage camera, an Isolette “folder” from Germany. I picked it up from an antique/junk store in Cary, NC with no idea what I was doing or if it would work at all. I found some folks online who pointed me to Jergen at Certo6.com who unstuck the focusing ring and did an amazing job cleaning it up for me.
I gathered up a few friends and went, where else, to a beautiful local cemetery. Despite the name, Congressional Cemetery is open to the public, and anyone can be buried there. It’s well off the DC tourist trail but worth a visit if you’re interested in history or old cemeteries.
