....lately i've had less time to shoot than i wanted to, but i guess that's what they call life. Work, kids, the house, the garden, car trouble, all time consuming stuff.
Besides that: it was mostly grey and rainy outside. We did not have anything close to what people call "winter". No snow, no ice, nada! I would have liked a bit of snow, just for photography purposes of course!
Really looking forward to spring and summer!!!
On my mind right now:
There's always a camera in my car, the current one is a Leica Mini (actually a rebranded Minolta) with Kodak Gold 200 inside. Besides this i always have one film SLR loaded to take with me, at the moment it's a Nikon FE with Nikkor 2.8/35 and Kodak Technical Pan 50 inside. Both rolls are nearly finished now. The Leica took me about 3 months or so... looking forward to mostly surprise shots, because i really do not know what i photographed anymore!
The fact that i have too many cams has made me shoot less as well. There's always the fight with myself about what to take with me. For that fact i have decided to sell most of my collection and focus on Minolta and Konica for film use, and Canon for digital. For the use of old manual lenses on digital i have a Sony A3000.
Many have gone over the past two weeks, it clears the shelfs and i hope it will clear my mind as well! I even found cameras in boxes of which i forgot i have them....
By now i have encountered something weird. I can't sell some of my cameras... don't know why, i just think i'd get some serious regrets of doing so. Examples: Olympus OM2n, Exakta Varex IIb and my Mirandas.
So what's next?
First: the Leica will be replaced as my always-in-the-car-cam by a Konica BigMini BM302. I finally found one for a (very) nice price! Second: i dunno why, but the FE is just not my system.... can't wait to finish the roll and sell it....
And third: i really, really want to shoot 120 rollfilm in old folders and boxtype cams!
Meanwhile: take care and shoot!
