Canon A-1

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Tis the rain season, it’s raining cameras. And even though I only shoot about two rolls a month, I can’t keep up with myself. Two more 6×6’s from the Yashica D, and then some 35mm pictures from my new, only slightly moldy Canon A-1 with 50mm/f1.4 lens (thanks mom!).

Bank holidays

We have a lot of bank holidays, I recently realised. It’s weird to me to get a day off in honour of some religious happening that may or may not have actually happened and that none of the people I know really cares about. I gladly join the party, though, when we celebrate the fact that we live in a country that’s more or less ‘free’. But that’s only a bank holiday once every five years. Weird priorities? Yes. Is it important enough to change? Not really. Am I bummed out by that? No, not at all, this was just a little observation of mine that I wanted to hurl into cyberspace, along with a semi-appropriate picture I took recently that’s also pretty by itself.

This roll was underexposed for the most part, one of the disadvantages of the Holga that only has one shutter speed. But the outdoor shots were okay. These were the shots I took at the allotments I wrote about earlier, where I was all but scared away by the owners for carrying around a camera.

I admire this man’s work tremendously, but I had never heard his voice. He must be the most wonderful public speaker, please let him give photography classes at my school…
