Nostalgia week…


Ford Prefect on the right?

I guess this is Oxford St, number 12 bus, going by what my friend alphabetaim has commented.

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!

    Interesting Photos, some from the 50’s? Or are they all 60’s?… Though I will say, you Brits keep driving like picture 3 you can expect a lot more like picture 1 😉 Though, I have to admit the Chaps on bikes would be a big hit at gay pride parades, especially amongst the leather enthusiasts… 😉

    • hey, marty!
      if there’s one thing i dont like being called..and thats a “Brit”…LOL!
      i ran away from the place for that reason…the way the place was going, i just couldnt stand being bracketed with a name that personified loutish behaviour, collapse of respect for anyone, the list is endless…at least in the suburbs of london anyways…it may still be ok out in the boonies as we canadians call them (everyone else read “sticks” or “countryside”..!!).
      joking aside, marty…it was one helluva place in the 50s and 60s….sure there was a lot of loutishness then as now…there was always trouble with skinheads, mods and rockers, as the “brits” stil say…you called a spade a spade…if you didnt like the name they called you, well, that was just tough…but on the whole, there was respect up to a point…that seems to have gone now….but, yeah…i grew up there so there’s always a certain amount of nostalgia for me….!
