storm coming


Fabulous depiction as always, Marina! And a very warm Yasou, parakalo to you, too….long time since we spoke on here! Hope your life has gotten better and better!

Yes, you read that right!

After summer’s first warm days, a thunderstorm with high winds darkened our city sky!

Not complaining of course as I am very fond of rain [especially in summer!] – very spectacular from our top floor apartment!

So I grabbed the opportunity and here it is.

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!

  1. Hey, Jak! How are you? How are you doing with those …spaces? Are they getting longer?!!!!! Thanks so much for this. I’ve been ridiculously absent for more than a year now with a few futile attempts of a ‘come back’! I try, what can I say, but life… It’s great seeing you while in one of those attempts! Namaste! _/\_

    • Hi Marina! Yes, exactly same with me! I havent posted very much either…life is getting in the way…lost my mom in December so that has dashed any hopes I had of getting back to normal life soon…she left a big hole in my life, and Im kinda ashamed of missing here, being a grown man etc….but she meant everything to me…and i wasted so much time arguing about silly things with her…now i regret that all…oh well…too late now…shes gone.
      Hope you dont give up posting on here….your posts have always been full of hope, life and happiness for me.
      Thanks, Marina!

      • Oh, I’m so sorry, my dear friend! You know, arguing is such a ‘healthy’ thing to do with a loved one. I’m sure your mom carries it with her along with your love, as do you, hold her in your heart dearly. Give yourself time and don’t regret anything. When I lost my granny, a few years ago, I came across this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1ZwaEzMtJw you might have seen it in an older post, however there is something about it. It still brings tears but in a kind of pain lifting way. Sending you my thoughts, my dear friend.

      • Thank u , Marina….youre a true friend.
