I’ve had my Yashica-635 camera for 20 years, my parents finding it for me at a car boot sale. It’s a twin-lens reflex (TLR), a camera format popularised by Rolleicord and Rolleiflex cameras in the interwar period of the 20th Century. Two lenses sit on top of each other, the bottom one focussed on the […]Read more "Classic Camera Review: Yashica-635"
In mid August a group of friends and I decided to take ourselves out for a photo-walk along Section 14 of the Capital Ring, the 78 mile circular walking route around London. I decided to take my Zenit TTL along with me as it had been a while since I used it and I wanted […]Read more "Section 14 of the Capital Ring: Hackney Wick to Beckton (and beyond!) with the Zenit TTL, Helios 44M, Jupiter Auto 135mm and Lomography Earl Grey film"

I’m firmly of the belief that this can well be a good thing too. Quite often I’ll put a film in a camera, take a few […]Read more "Lomography Redscale XR in the Trip 35"
My old London photos seem to have attracted a bit of interest, so I thought I’d put up the fullest versions that I have – I had to do a bit of cropping to make them match my “Now” equivalents in the comparison images. I only ever photochemically printed four of the pictures – as these are the […]Read more "London: 1907 and Now – In Full"
