Something totally different this week…


Suddenly this weekend, what with a somewhat simmering dispute at home that just doesn’t want to go away, and just general unhappiness that sets in at times like that, I felt a pang of nostalgia…..a search for the times gone by…when somehow things were so much better, although we know they weren’t.

So this entire week, yes, all week, I am going to be posting nostalgic stuff on here, whether it be photos, cuttings, written articles whatever.

Someone once told me that looking back at things that have already happened is counter-productive…it creates more longing, more despair, more unhappiness.

But I beg to disagree…..yes, it does create more longing for those times gone by, but that is what I want….I want to relive those moments years ago, because somehow they give me much pleasure, even though I know I cannot go back to those times….it is a form of release for me.

To kick off, here’s a nice little advert pushing lipstick by using Elvis as it’s theme!

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 years...my 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 back...no 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!
