Sunset came, and we found that wecould see more of it, for the sea wasnot so dark as it was on the previous day.The red and orange light changed to prismatic colors, the greenyellow, the rose-color, and the sea was thedepiction of a great piece of cut glass,where light itself was playing. The sky was also of a prismatic beauty, and thegolden moon was lying on the sea like adiamond. A soft sweet music sounded fromthe lighthouse, and as the sun set I feltas if a great blessed peace had fallen uponmy heart.
When the first pail was emptied theothers became delighted, and theis took the fish from thefire and began to lay them in the sun todry them. The little boys especiallyate the blue fish, and they all wantedto see the fresh fish. It took a long time to get them dried, as theywere kept in a kind of box of bark; the sun could not get to them. My mother said thatthey ought not to be made into chowder; it wasnot good to eat raw fish. But the childrendisobeyed her and had their chowder, andmy mother was not angry.
Unlike the Nikon and Contax, the Yashica 35 has to be opened by pressing a button below the lens which pops up the little half-lens camera back. I think this is the right way to do it, even though the 35, and later models like the Minimatic-S, may be more convenient for many people to open and close, especially when using the lens hood. The Yashica 35 comes with a lens aperture ring and if the lens is fitted with a 58mm filter thread, there is a 58mm filter catch ring to hold the filter. There is also a depth of field scale on the lens (f/1.9) as well as a fully manual film speed selector button. The camera has a top plate and fully enclosed front barrel. The monochrome lens is quite heavy but there is no zoom lens. Despite being fully manual, it is quite easy to use, except that it does not have a viewfinder and the lens aperture is set using the lens ring. A useful feature is that the lens aperture is also selected by the lens ring and is adjusted for the chosen shutter speed, aperture and focal length. 827ec27edc
