You're certainly wringing out all the nice from that film that it has. Really nice tone range

Thanks! Unfortunatly, this camera has a pin hole in the bellows I didn't know about, so this was one of the few shots I could salvage. My bad for not shooting a roll as soon as I got it back from getting the bellows replaced over six months ago.

I wonder what the etiquette is for using tripods in cemeteries? As long as it was used only in normal walking areas I can't see this issue. I may try taking a 4x5 camera next time I go to H town.

Good salvage job... stinks to have the bellows replaced by a bellows with a pinhole in it. :-(

One of the best and easiest fixes for small holes and tears in bellows is liguid electrical tape found in most auto stores. It is really just latex that is black and completely opaque. Dries flexible. I have used it even on old player piano bellows with great success. Cheap to!

Nice photo.

Can the bellows be patched? Maybe just a dab of black silicone rubber.

The gentleman who replaced it for me is sending me some patching material and adamantly warned against silicone of other, "gooh" as he put it. So that will be my first option.

Well, a Zeiss deserves the best!

Good luck with the repair. I'm looking forward to future posts.
