3 Film Cameras #1

14-04-18

Over the last few weeks I’ve been shooting some film on the few bright days we have had.

The 3 beasties, they are sitting on an album by a great band called “Snowapple” (click the Link to have a listen) I saw them a few years ago when they were the support for the brilliant “Handsome Family” and was blown away by their performance.

Samsung AF Slim
I bought this camera in 2002 to take on my first road trip to France. I wanted a camera I could easily carry around when I didn’t feel like lugging an SLR. Thought It could do with another outing.

The Samsung worked well after it’s long slumber, but I didn’t quite gel with it. It’s great to slip in a pocket and has a macro function, I’ll have to give it another try.

In the Land of Grey and Pink

Went for a walk to the city this morning but took a film camera with me, still a few shots to go before I can take the film in for processing. Been in a bit of a nostalgic/reminiscing mood this week, it was my birthday on the 19th, the Beatles wrote a song about my age, no not “Help” although that would be entirely appropriate. So this afternoon I decided to play a bit of vinyl, one of my favourite albums, Caravan – In the Land of Grey and Pink. I saw them live in 1970 and bought this album when it was released in 1971. Gentle English prog rock is probably the best way to describe it, with some great keyboard and bass playing.

That turntable needs a dusting !

Hope this link works.

And to make it even better my cat Mimi came and lay on my lap, of course with vinyl she only had a short stay as I had to turn the record over.

As near to Grey and pink as I can make it.
