I’m Just Waiting For A Mate

A friend recently informed me of this ozi meme that’s apparently been circling for ages. That’s usually how I’m made privy to the happenings of the world. This shot was taken on our drive from Dar Es Salaam to Moshi, Tanzania. In case there are some as bad as me, in keeping up to date with pretty much everything, here’s a link to the original I’m referencing:  http://www.news.com.au/technology/car-crash-drink-driver-telling-police-he-was-waiting-for-a-mate-goes-viral-online/story-e6frfro0-1226583565788

Looking Back

This house once stood a couple of doors down from mine. One day it just vanished.

Vanished

The shot of the house was taken almost two years ago. The shot of the empty block I shot just a couple hours ago. Both were taken in almost exactly the same position with the same lens (Nikon 50mm 1.8 G).  The extra coverage is due to a recent upgrade to full frame.

Wide eye on Brisbane

Ever since the switch to full frame Iv not had a compatible wide angle lens to play with and consequently forgotten how much fun they can be. A few weeks ago I found what I thought to be quite a bargain on ebay, a second hand nikon mount ,sigma, fixed 18mm f/3.5 lens. It finally arrived and, although the explanations for its low asking price are endlessly revealing themselves, I’m having fun with it. These are a few I took today after dropping off some film to Big W. The first one is a .gif so may take a sec to load.

soh cah toa

As some of my friends have already been made painfully aware, I have recently purchased a new 35mm film camera. It was bought to replace a faithful yet tired companion, my old Nikon fm. The original “Dads Old Camera” was suffering some light leaks, probably due to a few too many hard knocks against train station floors, as well as an out of service light meter. Tired of having to always bring a hand held light meter with me on the streets I decided it was time to shelve the much loved machine and finally purchase the Nikon F4, aka the best 35mm film camera ever made

Here is a sample of shots to come from the worthy successor.

Italia On 35mm

It’s been a while since I returned from Italy and the digital shots taken back from the trip have long since been posted and forgotten. Film takes more time, in between assignments and work Iv slowly been scanning and editing the rolls in order to give them a place in the spot light. For the next four days Il be posting 12 shots at a time in no particular order. I hope you like them.
