new/old camera treasure!

Months ago I picked up an old camera at the local Salvation Army store, and just now got around to Googling it, and what a treasure!  It's a Zeiss Ikon, Super Ikonta 530/2
Thanks to Mike Elek at Classic Cameras, I have access to a manual and lots of lovely images of my camera!

There was a roll of film in it when I got it, and now I know that only six pics had been taken.  I got the film developed at Cooper's Imaging in Norwichtown, CT--very nice people! I brought the negative home and scanned it into Photoshop to see what was there.

I like the rose the best, and the last one of the trees and barn next, but have no clue where they could have been taken.  The Cooper's guy said the roll (Kodak Vericolor III, 120) was probably from the 90s,  and one of the images has an above ground pool in the back--behind bushes and a railing (#4).

I bought a new roll of 120 film and armed with the manual from Mike Elek's site, I'm going to learn how to use this really cool piece of German engineering!
