Black and White #12 – Cameras for Sale

CamerasspitalSHS

The range of  old camera’s on offer at the Spitalfield’s Market, just begged to be shot in black and white. I remember my father using his Rolleiflex and his Minolta single lens. I always preferred the Minolta as when the twin lens came out, it was… stand still…hold it…hold it…why are you fidgeting…almost there….

By that time an eight year old was ready to roll eyes in exasperation! Life was slipping by! Minutes lost! Course now all old and grumpy, I am very grateful for the photographs he took. Even though it took years to get them!  Black and white week #12 Cameras for sale

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    you are so correct – it has a better feel in Black & White – I also like that you gave a glimpse of the background to the right – 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
