Been a while since I took to the streets with the gang and I was definately feeling rusty. Went back to a familiar haunt and whilst the landscape is much the same the surfaces have really changed.
One of the benefits of being in this little collective is the wealth of knowledge other members bring to the table. Brendon, Rees and Dave have a depth of knowledge with regards to cameras and the associated camera bits and pieces that makes my head spin sometimes.
In today’s digital world, Route52’s admiration for analogue holds strong. He captures one of Askew One’s moving canvases at its home in Onehunga, Auckland, with an Olympus OM-1 camera, Artista 100 EDU film and a Gossen Luna Pro light meter.
His humble home dark-room continued along the analogue pathway in which I learnt about the photographic brand names, AGFA and Kaiser. Learning something new every day.
