Arrived in the land of James Bond….!

Greetings to all my readers from sunny (!) England….!

First thing I overheard a couple saying was, as usual with the British, a comment about the current weather….”Ooh, it’s rather brisk out, innit?”

I shall be here for Xmas and the New Year so have a kinda full agenda to try and cover….I have plans to visit places like Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Westminster cathedral and countless more places.

This place astounds me every time I’m here…the amount of history here is virtually limitless….as an example, where my folks live….just a short walk away is a church that was built in 1100AD…!

Anyway, getting back to James Bond etc….I visited my friend who is an accomplished camera collector, and who I’d talked to about 16mm subminiature cameras. I’ve managed to acquire some very good ones from him, some of which I shall keep myself, and some that I will offer for sale.

Here is the first one I’m offering…

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!
