Film Friday More shots from the dynamic Minolta duo. Sticking with the Minolta Riva 35EX loaded with fujifilm Expedia 400. I took it with me to the Spoon at Cramlington and to Druridge Bay, so regular readers of The Universe blog will recognise them.

I love that spoon! I want to go on a road trip sometime to find weird enormous objects around Canada. Lol! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Do it! Take pics! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What can I say? I remember the original ‘spoon’ pics’, but film is just so warm and wonderful. I’m rolling around, wallowing in film nostalgia now. (Your fault…) If I had more money, I would buy a used Canon T-90, and recapture those wonderful days of film. I might just do that anyway. You have put the bug in my brain! Best wishes, Pete.

I shouldn’t! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person no you shouldn’t, but go on anyway 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person OK, just put an offer on a T90 on Ebay. Doubt they will accept it! LikeLiked by 1 person Will keep my fingers crossed! LikeLiked by 1 person They turned down my offer, and I raised it by £5. They countered with just £7 less than the asking price, so I declined. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Hah, good for you. He’ll drop the price next time he puts it up. LikeLiked by 1 person Haha it is addictive 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Just had an email from Ebay to say it sold at asking price, which I thought was a little too much, for the condition. So I had a thought, and decided that if I can afford £50 for a camera, I will give it to Dani instead. Better use of the money, I reckon. Cheers, Pete.

I don’t know if I mentioned this, but my dad was a professional photographer and we used to spend a lot of weekends together taking nature photographs. You have me feeling quite nostalgic.🤦🏻♀️ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Kim, glad to stir up good memories! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Film is the BEST though digital is so convenient!

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 😊😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lovely ❤️ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It has a lot of vignetting and it is 35mm film but somehow that all makes it more gentle and these photographs makes me feel in a way more human than your wonderful rollei. I wonder is if a kind of personal fear of so much perfection. Anyway, lovely trip! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Francis, I know what you mean. I am favouring the little compact, maybe I’m lazy, but don’t have to think about settings, just compose and shoot, the only decision available is whether or not to have flash. So much to think about with the rollei, but each has its merits, and no down sides! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
