Day 350 – Life Is Like…

I have this sign on my study door at home, and figure it’s a great metaphor for life.

Day 295 – Oldie But Goodie…

I’ve wanted to get a classic 35mm ‘pocket’ camera for a while, but I’ve been outbid on every occasion up to now. This little beauty was advertised at £30 on the website of a reputable photo retailer so I dived in, and it arrived this morning… First indications are very promising.

Day 272 – My New Camera…

Well, it’s actually a new phone – an iPhone 11 Pro. Only released a couple of weeks ago, I was seduced by the three camera lenses it has built in. The usual wide angle as on most iPhones, a telephoto, and a super wide angle. And it’s got improved processing so ideal for low light, and portraits. Not that I’m planning on selling my ‘real’ camera anytime soon, but this is going to be brilliant for everyday photos…

Day 200 – New Addition…

I’ve been thinking for some time that I might slim down my camera equipment – it’s kind of grown somewhat over the last year or so, and there are times when I figure I could just manage with a decent compact camera. However, I’ve always hankered for a good telephoto zoom, and this nearly new Sony 70-200mm f4 lens was too good a deal to miss. Yet to test it out, but I’m sure it will be great!

Day 194 – Still Going Strong…

This is my Olympus OM2n 35mm film camera. I had one ‘in the day’ (around 1979-1980) but it was a bit battered and I sold it long ago. I picked this beautiful example up a couple of years ago and reckon I will never part with it – it’s in pretty much mint condition, came with 28mm and 135mm lenses as well as the 50mm, and even has the original box! Must get out and use it more…
