Sorry if I'm about to have a bit too much fun in this thread.....
Way way in the background is a cup of Nespresso Ristretto in a Brazilian-made cup I purchased in Perth, Ontario, likely one of the nicest towns in the province. I could surely live there. I like Nespresso but I think our next coffee maker will be one that doesn't use capsules, does the bean grinding etc. Gotta save up for that one. Next to it is one of my Ermanoxes -- this one has the 85/1.8 Ernostar lens with the aluminum barrel (not sure if all the 85's were aluminum?) and a factory-installed Albada finder. Interesting that although this particular camera was made in about 1925-26 (not Zeiss-badged) it likely wasn't sold until the mid-1930's (Zeiss was still listing the Ermanox in their catalogues into the 1930's). In speaking with the foremost Ernemann expert, Peter Göllner, he thought that since the introduction of the Contax in 1932, Zeiss was perhaps trying to make this seemingly obsolete camera more attractive to buyers, so they adapted the Albada finder to the camera. Only thing is that the view through these finders is nowhere near as nice as the original Ermanox finders, although with those finders you have to hold the camera away from your body for proper framing perspective. Either way it's a super camera that can be both a joy and frustration to use.
Oh sorry, almost forgot the star of the show -- butter tarts created by my own hands. For those of you who aren't Canadian, butter tarts are a kind of religion, with never-ending debates about who makes the best (well of course we all know I do, so that argument is already settled), raisins or no raisins, drippy or non-drippy, etc etc. Haven't seen any fistfights break out over a butter tart, but it wouldn't at all surprise me.
