Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.

you know…thats what is so great about using classic film cameras….you always seem to meet people who will look at you!
and you can sus out what theyre thinking about you, too…just by their looks….some may think youre an idiot with a crappy old camera…some will be genuinely interested…you meet all sorts!
i always get comments when im out with my rolleiflex or yashicamat…..or even my humble little olympus trip!
love your blog, sir!

Cheers 🙂 And its amazing the cross section you get, from older people who remember the camera from the day to kids yelling “nice camera” as they run past 🙂

i still laugh at some guy who said to his partner when they saw me using my yashicamat…”he probably cant afford a digital camera….stupid fool…digital’s so much better…”
i heard him say it…and chuckled to myself….i was enjoying myself so much….i had the last laugh, i reckon!
