Slowly getting back to normal….!

Remember those old Charles Dickens films that are sometimes shown on TV, the ones that are depictions of his great novels, like Great Expectations or Oliver Twist etc? And in one of those films, remember someone saying the words “Oh, woe is me, woe is me…”?

Well, that’s what I felt like coming back home after my vacation! What with the long 10 hour flight, and the time difference, it all played havoc with my system….I mean even now, almost a week later, I still wake up at 2am in the morning, unable to sleep, as my internal clock battles to readjust itself back to my normal timing!

That’s the hell of jet travel. Anyway, I agree…it was self-inflicted so don’t bother giving me any sympathy.

Back to reality then…..I want to talk to you about film…not the type you and I use in our cameras, but the type we used to see in cinemas. And I want to talk about a very special man in a very special part of the world where he carried out his work.

But I won’t do it today! No, possibly tomorrow or the weekend. I still feel too fatigued to do anything at the moment, so it’s a hot drink and a nice snooze for me for the time being…again….zzzzzzz!

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!
