So what is this about?…


In this blog each post will focus on five images that are linked in some way either through the subject matter, place or something else and I will keep the descriptions to no more than a few paragraphs.

I decided to start this blog as kind of a fresh start on my photography. My previous blog called ‘View from the Carrotroom‘ has come to the end of it’s course and I want to go in a different direction. Making a new start is (I think) easier than trying to redesign and take what I have done to-date to a new style.

So here we are

As a photographer I don’t think I have stuck to one genre and I generally just like to shoot things I see (call me an opportunist) but often there is a thread (sometimes tenuous) that links images taken over the course of time and I think this is a good way of presenting my photography in some way that is coherent (for me at least).

This is not intended to be a gear site but just to kick things off here is my current selection of cameras that I will be (and have been) mostly using to create the images. I have others and I reserve the right to use those too but these are my main shooters

The Digital

Olympus Pen-F Digital

The Olympus Pen-F digital is perfect for the way I shoot and I found it very intuitive to use with good quality images. I bought it to replace my Canon dSLR which was just too bulky and heavy; going mirror-less is a decision I am very happy with.

The Rangefinder

Voigtländer Prominent

Not a common camera but an excellent one and the glass is top notch. As a collector of Voigtländer Cameras I was very happy when I was finally able to get my hands on one of these. Like most Voigtländers it has it’s quirks but it produces great negatives

The SLR

Miranda Sensorex

Again not a common make of camera but I love the Miranda. It looks great and takes wonderful pictures.

The TLR

Mamiya C330

It’s a beast for sure but the Mamyia is a great camera and one of a few TLRs I own probably the only one that might have been considered Professional it is dire need to a CLA, maybe I’ll get around to that this year

The folder

Voigtländer Bessa RF

This is the best folding camera ever! ….well that’s my opinion. Good glass, high quality construction, and a built in rangefinder
