The Lens

This is a young site at the moment but I hope that it will grow as I start to use my old film cameras recently inherited from my father. He was a keen collector and in his hey day used many of these types of camera as an amateur photographer - selling portraits and wedding albums as a side line to his main job.

Here is my father when he was young. I scanned this from a set of negatives that I found in his study. I guess this was around 1956 when he was about 25 years old but I can’t be sure.


Here are some of my Father’s mates, from the same roll of film as the above picture. One of them probably took the above picture.
