To use a quote from an action film (first for this blog despite how corny that is!) “You’re a Timex watch in a digital age!” Hmm, I kind of like Timex watches, even though they only produce quartz watches these days (I actually sold mine and bought an even more analogue automatic, so what does that say!).
Analogue Film photography has come back into my practice in a big way. I have been in a very lucky position to re-embrace the medium, it has been a lot of fun to get back into ‘slow’ photography again.
Collected posts and links related to analogue and film photography practice:
I have started a new page that focusses on sharing my analogue photography outputs:

Analogue delights from on of my visits to Canada, mostly Ontario. I used a lot of Agfa Vista 200 (Now discontinued) in an Olympus Trip on this trip.
This is what started the whole thing. I Stumbled across a bulk roll of old kodalith Ortho Type 3 film. A really high contrast stock designed for name plates and the like. Instead I went ahead and experimenting with shooting it outside on the streets. With mixed abstract results!
The most fun I am having with a camera is how I am shooting since the birth of my daughter. Just taking a camera out and not being super precious about it. Ok, I have been reading Geoff Dyer and looking at New Topographics style images.
