Canoes

I keep considering buying a digital camera and then occasionally this happens.

Okay, it’s not the best photo in the world but it was shot with a 30+ year old lens on a 40+ year old camera without a meter (or any batteries)

No post processing beyond a crop and levels adjustment to match the vibrancy of the actual transparency (which still looks better)

I hope they never stop making film

Last post for a while as I’m off to the Outer Hebrides for 10 days or so.

Going sea kayaking and hopefully I’ll get the chance to take some photo’s.

I’m a little disappointed though because I sent my Hasselblad in for a service about 6 or 7 weeks ago and they haven’t managed to sort it out yet.

I’ll have to rely on the Contax G2 and the quality of the Zeiss lenses but it’s not quite the same as Medium Format!
