Have you ever wonder

that some things in your home are as old as you or even much older than you are? *laugh*

I didn’t know that I would find any “treasure” at all while I was rummaging through our camera dry box yesterday, until I saw these!

I was actually very surprised to see them in the dry box at all! Why haven’t I noticed them since I started sharing the camera box with the hubs since we moved into our home 8 years ago?

So I called the hubs while he was at work and asked him, “Where in the heck did you get these dinosaur-age piece of camera?”. Yeah, they are cameras but they do look as old as my Dad!:D

He said he got them when he was in India. I said, “What? You got them in India? Why is a camera with a Chinese brand doing in India?”. Hahahahahaha……………Let me tell you, I was very puzzled about the whole thing.

I’m not hoping that these 2 pieces of old junk are some kind of “extinct species” collectors items that would fetch thousands of dollars but I’m just curious. That’s all. Come to think of it, the more I look at them, the more I think they look cool. We’re not sure if they can still load any films and take pictures but we’ll just keep them, whether it still works or not.

Anyway, I’m contemplating of getting myself a Holga after blog hopping yesterday and found something that captured my attention. Gosh, it’s been ages since I’ve taken pictures using my film camera, EOS5. Maybe 10 years ago? My old faithful film SLR is still in the dry box but unfortunately, it’s been slightly damaged. Long story behind the incident.

Sigh…………………how I’ve missed film. I feel the strong urge to start taking pictures in film again. I missed the days I was snapping away photos of almost everything and anything, spending thousands of dollars developing rolls and rolls of films of photos. It was the satisfying feeling that I get when I got it right! You know, the exposure, the settings, blah……blah…….blah………

I know, I know………..it’s old school but I still love film SLR cameras.

Here are some of the pictures I took when I was in Nepal and India 12 years ago.

Seriously, I want to go back to film photography again. It still allows me to get creative with the settings and feeling the excitement how the photos will turn out, without any digital touch up.

Thank you for popping in to say hi. It’s so good to hear from you again.

Have a great week ahead!:D
