Shoe repair

I like a little bit of neon every now and again.  This one I shot whilst taking a walk in Burbank.

I am not affiliated with, or being paid by, this business but if you do need shoes (or anything else) repaired in Burbank I can recommend this guy.

Seven Day challenge

So a week or two ago someone challenged me to the Seven day challenge on Facebook which is;

“Seven days. Seven black and white photos of my life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day! “

Despite being a very light user of Facebook (weeks can go by without me checking it) I never miss an opportunity to take photos.  Here are my seven photos and I will add some explanation (I’m out of the challenge now); Continue reading “Seven Day challenge”

Cameras: Mamiya C330

A Mamiya TLR from the ‘C’ series has been on my list of desires for a long time and I never really thought I would own one.  These were the professional cameras used by wedding photographers all over the place throughout the 70s and 80s and have always been at a price point well beyond what I could justify.  They’re not especially attractive cameras (though all TLRs have a classic look in my opinion) but they are solid work horses and can take a lot of use (or abuse).

The building is an Mediterranean-styled building containing elements of the Spanish Colonial Revival, the Mission Style, and the Pueblo Style. It was designed and designed and built in the mid to late 1930s Continue reading “Burbank Main Post Office Building”

Burbank City Hall

I had a little time to spare at the weekend recently so decided to take some pictures of a couple of historic buildings in Burbank.  First up is City Hall.

This is an impressive building in one of my favourite design style ‘Art Deco’  Continue reading “Burbank City Hall”

Cameras: Minolta SRT 101

I got this a long time ago in a job lot of cameras I picked up so it cost me virtually nothing.  It had seen better days as it was quite dirty and the filter mount is bent from a drop (I presume).

It’s been sat in a box for months and I finally got it out and gave it a cleanup. Continue reading “Cameras: Minolta SRT 101”
