Yosemite 1975 by La-Vita-a-Bella Yosemite 1975 by La-Vita-a-Bella
This photo of Yosemite was taken by my father in 1975.
He used a Yashica 635 with 2 1/4 square b&w film.
The photo was scanned and processed by my uncle.
My father has given me permission to post the photo...I wanted to share it with all of you.
I hope you like it. :heart:

***EDIT****
A note my father wrote me this morning stated that he wasn't using the original Yashicor lens when he took this. He says the lens was off of a Yashica mat....a Yashinon 80mm f/3.5 lens.
He also wrote: "I love all of the reviews. People were so kind on their reviews. Thank you for posting it."
:love:
Thank you to everyone for making his day!!! :hug:

Sorry for the late reply....I got behind on my comments! I would love to see Yosemite in the snow...have only been there in spring and summer. :love:

I just read through all the other comments :D Nice to see your dad has gotten an account - my father was influential on my photography too, getting me my first Roliflex (used!) for 6th grade graduation :giggle:

Once he's been on here a bit maybe you could do a feature and 'share' him with all your watchers?!

Next time you're down we have to do a meetup!!!!

Well, it appears that he made the one cameo appearance and then disappeared from the site. Oh well! Photography doesn't seem to be his thing anymore. He is limited to how much he can leave the house because he has to take care of his wife.
It would be fun to meet up...not sure when I'll be down again.

I live in freezing temps, but I've never had that! It's bad enough when your windshield wipers freeze to the windshield! lol!

Its hard to think that I was only 36 years old then. I worked in Yosemite under contract and was there every week year round for 8 hours. Fond memories. Thank you so much for your comments. Alex

I have to admit, I did ask him if he was inspired by Ansel Adams when he took the picture, but he said no. Thanks, Steve! :hug:
