Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
The time is always right to do what is right.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

here I want to talk about the Technic, like Camera and Film that i used in this Art project

the camera

I used The Chinon CS-4 – Reliable Screw-Mount SLR. The Chinon CS-4 is a basic, no-frills SLR that has an M-42 mount, which was popular in the late 1960s-1970s among second-tier manufacturers since it was considered a “universal” mount. When Pentax finally switched to the bayonet K-mount, it became the defacto “universal” mount among the same manufacturers.
