Isn’t face book wonderful ? Well, maybe not completely and utterly… but I certainly feel like my life is enriched from it. An old primary school friend got in touch with me through FB, and had said that his Mum had inherited two old analogue cameras from a dear friend. Steve got in touch with me to see if I was interested in buying either (or both) of them…. I’d always bene curious to dabble in a bit of film photography… I played about with it a tiny bit when I was a teenager, but nothing with any sort of knowledge or understanding. And in the age of everything digital , I learnt my craft with my first ‘real camera’ – a Nikon D80., anyway – I’m going on a massive tangent (nothing new there!). I am now the proud new owner of a rather fine Hasselblad 500 c/m .. I wanted to take this chance to thank Steve and his Mum, I love this old camera so much.
So here are some of the scans that I’ve just had back from the wonderful peeps at the UKfilmLab. Here are the results from our wee family holiday in Cumbria ~ (note the first two images Ive cheated and changed into black and white, via the use of Lightroom, as I felt that it fitted them better – please don’t scorn me for that!) <3
