Gruette 8 Eight!…… wtf?
I had an appointment at the hospital as I will undergo some surgery on my right foot in exactly two weeks, and I took the opportunity for a nice walk, although my foot hurt a bit. I’ll have to take it slow, photography wise in the next weeks / months as I won’t be very mobile. But I won’t leave you alone, oh no! Unfortunately you’ll have to continue listening to my ravings as I will certainly find things and old photos to bore you to death with 😉 .
This time the Olympus XA2 accompanied me once again. My faithful travel companion! Loaded with Kodak Tmax 400.
First a disclaimer: I do not like the Lomography Lady Grey film! Either made by Foma, Kodak or anyone else. I don’t care. I don’t like it!
That being said, it was the only roll I had lying around…. got to buy some film, really. So I loaded it into the Praktica MTL 5 B and went out for a walk. About one hour later I was back, developed and scanned the film and now, after 4 hours (no I did not spend all that time on the film!), I can write this post though I’ll only publish it tomorrow… that’s today, as you read it, but for me it’s still tomorrow….. confusing stuff!
…might be a Prince!
I remember very well when I was young, about sixteen or seventeen and I hunted the Photography stores for my first SLR.
Google is our friend!
Google finds everything!
Google is the repository of humankind’s knowledge!
So when I want to find something, normally photography related, I use Google. What could I want to know this time… let’s see.
Hey Google, what was the first photograph?
Google takes about a second and Google got the answer:
Using a digital camera like a ‘real’ one!
Let me make a quick excursion into the world of digital photography once more. An attempt I made some time ago to test out the waters of the dark side.
You might already have guessed from some of my posts that I don’t own only film cameras. I came upon an incredibly good deal some time ago. A deal on a Fuji X-E1 digital mirrorless camera from a camera shop in the UK. The price was very good and the camera, when it came, was perfect. Like new. No used traces at all!
