I am that old... When I started with photography, digital was not even a word, much less an option in photography. As seen in the gear section of this website, I started shooting with a Nikon F2A Photomic that my late father entrusted in me in 1980, along with two fast primes. I didn’t know what a privilege that was at the time, but in the years that followed I often thought about that time. As I made the move to digital, my film days became a remote memory, something that I never seriously thought to revive. Until now.

I have quite a few old cameras in my collection, but it wasn’t until I acquired a Nikon F3 HP with a 35-70 f/2.8 Nikkor that it dawned on me that I could do this as a side project and see what comes out of it.

So, instead of organizing my images by month and subject, as I am doing in the rest of the website, in this particular place I will be posting images shot with this amazing camera once a roll is completed and developed. I toyed with the idea of posting the images as shot, SOOC as they say (Straight Out Of Camera), but I eventually decided against it; after all retouching was an option in the analog days as well, albeit in B&W only. I promise to keep to a minimum though; some mild cropping as / if required and minor corrections.

Also, breaking with tradition, I will not be naming these images; don’t know why I decided that; it just seemed right:)

Don’t know where this will lead me, but what good is art without experimentation?
