I was helping my Uncle frame his "Man Cave" and during a break thought I would take a few shots of his daughter's very interesting front porch. I just love some of the unique things around this place!
How very beautiful and cheerful those pots are. Love the angle you got here.

Love the brightness of the colours and the whole "happy feel"to this

Such beautiful pots...love all the vibrant colours. If I look hard enough... I can still find Kodak Gold 100 around here. :)
July 18th, 2012  
Love the "Indian" colours in your pots, and clever control of DOF.

@swilde Thanks Sue, me too! :)
@veg66 It is all my local supermarket sells :) The camera shop has lots of Fuji, 120 and Kodak B&W so I have most bases covered :)
@tonydebont Thanks Tony! :)

@grizzlysghost your lucky...my supermarket sells the Kodak Gold...but try and find film in our camera shops,and it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Congratulations on 200 days!
I just went perusing your camera photos (may 2011)
I would never have thought I would want to try film photography ( I grew up with it) but I have an old 1953 agfa camera and some film and I'm ready to give it a go. Problem is I cant open it.
July 18th, 2012  
@monika64 Thanks Monika! If you know the name of the Agfa, there is lots of information on the net (I am guessing it's a Silette) :) Opening cameras is pretty cut-and-dried, you will figure it out! Then we'll get to see what you can do with film!
July 18th, 2012  
@monika64 I think there is a small pull-out lever on the side opposite of the hinge, on the bottom. You should be able to pull that down and the back will pop open. You pull up the dial to insert your spool of film. I don't own a Silette but I think that's how it's done :)

So very lovely!!

@nyusha Thanks Anna!
@sueh Thank you Sue :)
July 18th, 2012  
Wow. A riot of colours. I am so envious of your Nikon S. i vant wait to see results. not to worry. I have spotted a treasure myself in a lot of cameras which I am pursuing.
July 18th, 2012  
@peterdegraaff Don't you just love that Peter? The thrill of the hunt! :) I would never search for "Nikon S2," it's so much more fun if I see one in a batch of other cameras like I did with this one! Scanning negatives from it now :)
July 18th, 2012  
I don't know how I missed seeing this one. It's farkin AWESOME. It's the colors here that gets the old circulation going! Virtual High Five! Wait.....do people high five anymore???? I don't care, I'M HIGH FIVIN' YA, BUDDY!
July 19th, 2012  
@thendrix58 Haha, thanks so much Terry! :)
July 19th, 2012  
Wow; vivid colours! Do you think it's the film's quality, or the camera's?
July 19th, 2012  
@bankmann Neither, it is definitely the photographer! LOL A film camera's first, best quality is the lens. Before film can record the color, it has to pass through the lens. The lens definitely wins over in this photo!
