    If you're like me, you'll have a bunch of pre-digital photos. Lets see them :)

    Most of these were taken with either a Pentax K1000 + cheap off-brand zoom or an Olympus mju zoom or mju II. I had only the vaguest idea of film, metering, filters or lenses - the little Oly pocket AF cameras did a much better job than my rather inept manual shooting on the Pentax.

    A couple from Sydney (mid-2000 from memory)

  2. I've got lots. Here are a couple, both from the early 1970s:

    This is scanned from a drugstore print, probably PlusX shot with the Signet 35. John and Charlie don't look quite the same today. I, on the other hand, haven't changed a bit.

    J&C.



    Kodachrome, shot with the 35RC. The dash of my then-new 1973 Fiat 124 Spyder:

    I found out I'm a regular plagiarist once I started digitizing my grandfathers old photos:

    A friend of mine in the DJ booth at a uni student radio station in '89 or 90. Pretty sure this was shot with an Olympus Pen S (inherited from my father who used it in the 1960's) and some Kodak film.

    Lots of carts & vinyl. May have been a solitary CD player hidden away in a corner somewhere. Fairly certain this was a graveyard 12-6am shift - lots of phone in requests from student parties up until 3.30-4am and then its deathly quiet for a few hours until dawn breaks and the morning crew takes over.

  5. Back in the early 90s, I tried to take a picture of our house on the same day of each month, at the same time and from as close as possible to the same location, for one year. I don't remember what the film was, and the negatives are long gone, but I'm sure it was Kodak. I do remember standing at the end of the driveway, holding the 35RC to my eye while holding a previous print in the other hand, trying to get the framing the same. I won't inflict all 12 on you, but here is one from each season:

    January
    Seasons 1.

    April
    Seasons 2.

    July
    Seasons 3.

    October
    Seasons 4.

    Regards,

    Nice! I'll have to give this a go.

    Maybe combine them into an animated gif ?
