Technology then and now:
This is the Werra. The only camera to have been made by the renowned Carl Zeiss Jana lens maker and manufactured by the company from the early 50s.
Across a number of variants over half a million Werras were produced out of East Germany until the company decided to refocus on their core business of producing lenses.
This photograph of the Werra was taken today on the camera function of an iPhone 5c. A truly impressivley sharp and well rendered image for a mobile device.

Train With a View 4 - River Dee:
Stuck on a long train journey as a beautiful sun set across the countryside of Wales and England was a bit frustrating for this photographer. Instead, I thought I’d ignore the internal reflections and use the window as a pictorial frame for this serious of rough-and-ready landscape grabs; and I’m glad I did.
