Nominating someone for an award….

In short….not for me, I’m afraid!

I think it was * Marty, my friend here on WordPress, who mentioned it somewhere in his blog about awards etc…in that we put a shed load of responsibility, not to mention extra workload on the person we nominate, as there are a lot of criteria one has to meet.


Sure, go ahead and call me a boring old so and so, or maybe even worse words than that…go on….I can take it!

* PS it wasn’t Marty….it was somebody else I confused with Marty..sincere apologies!



About filmcamera999

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

    I don’t think I said that, I remember saying that it’s tough to decide whom to choose when given a limit of 15 to choose… That said, your blog is anything but boring. You have a passion for photography not only as an art form but also it’s history to whats going on currently with a special fondness for antique cameras, nothing wrong with that at all. Anyone who doesn’t think you have a sense of humor or that you don’t express it here hasn’t read a lot of your stuff. The comments you posted on my blog about about the word “Why” still crack me up… Anyone who disagrees should be subjected to marathon of Jay Leno monologues translated to Portuguese .. 😉
