It’s competition Time!

… and there is a prize too!

The image below is a 100% crop of a photo I took recently. I thought it looks interesting when viewed this close and a little abstract.

Decided that if someone could identify what it is an photo of, I would offer a prize in the form of this nice new camera strap from ‘Art Tribute‘ (Shipping anywhere in the USA)

I just can’t help myself

I think I am beyond help.

Just as I am saying I have enough cameras and I need to prune the collection; suddenly I am buying another camera and not even a Voigtländer.

Why do we do it? (Using “we” here in the hope that you there reading this are of the same disposition, please don’t enlighten me if you are not and leave me to my blissful ignorance and happiness that I am not alone in this crazy pursuit.)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I just can’t help myself, I can’t resist an interesting camera at a reasonable price. And I just can’t help looking either. Sometimes I try to kid myself that I’m only looking for specific cameras and that I am sticking to the one brand or a defined thing that I need yet I suddenly get and urge and ‘DING’ PayPal takes a hit.

Danger! – Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this a while ago on a hike near the Hollywood sign; nearly stepped on it as my eye was stuck to the viewfinder of my camera.  Luckily my daughter was paying attention and alerted me to the little critter.

Photography can be a dangerous pastime.

Photo competition: What is this?

Okay so maybe it’s not quite a competition as there is no prize and I actually don’t know the right answer so ‘winning’ here is me finding out exactly what this is.

I took this last year near Salton Sea; it was in the middle of nowhere and looks a little like some kind of missile though my theory it’s more a drilling rig or something like that.

What do you think?

Took this shot looking down from Verdugo mountains to Burback where it is very green and colourful after this winter’s rain.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
