Older Than I….

I have a camera that is older than I am.
I love the weight of it. The feel of it. The look of it.
A true thing of beauty to my eyes.

Yashica Electro 35 GT (Coupled Rangefinder) made in the 1970s.

Up until recently, I have been far to occupied with staring at my camera to use it. But, use it I did and I have a new stack of scanned of slide film for your viewing pleasure:

“The Lamp post” Dalston, Hackney

“Ghost Signs” Dalston, Hackney.

I have a thing for “ghost signs”. Decrepit fading old signs that once emblazoned the walls of a bygone generation.

“Bird Houses” Dalston, Hackney.

“Hiro Shadow Chasing” De Beauvoir Square, Hackney.

“Lux Veritas” De Beauvoir Square, Hackney.

You may recall my previous post about our stumble through De Beauvoir Square here.

“Before they bring it down” City of London.

How strange it is that this eyesore that takes such prominence in the City of London should shroud a rather forgotten ancient temple in its foundations. The Temple of Mithras was built in the 3rd Century. I wonder what it’s fate shall be with the building above it marked for demolition.

I am busy scanning in the rest of my film so will be sure to stick some more before your noses soon.
