Film Photography


The other cameras have been making a fuss as I keep mooning over my new addition and ignoring them. The Hasselbladski was especially miffed when prints cam back from the lab and I only feigned the tiniest bit of…

Here I am! Oh, boy – I have been having lots of fun with new camera. Just getting the feel of it right now but I am loving what’s emerging from those little compact flash cards! I’ve just been…

Don’t stop believing

A little bit of politics

There’s so much I could say today, so many thoughts are trying to articulate themselves. Today is the day the UK votes for a new government – I really hope it makes the right decision. I’ve never known it…
