… my sick camera!
This is what my 15-year old son, in his elegant way with language, means just now when describing this camera, my Nikon FM2. A few days after breaking my arm, stuck in the house and going slightly crazy, I decided to get the little FM2 out and document some of my time off due to the broken arm. So I’ve photographed: items to do with being off, different things I can do, some of the people who have visited me or that I have visited, and so on. For example, the shot above was preparation for a self-timed image of me typing with both hands, which my physiotherapist has recommended I begin to do. I can’t remember what film is in the camera – I think it is probably my last roll of Fuji Sensia 100, but it may also be a black and white print film… so that will be interesting. I’m determined to use all the 36 exposures on this little project – but don’t worry, I’ll not be inflicting images of me typing with both hands on you, even though it’s exciting for me! 🙂
I have also managed to take a couple of images with the much heavier D90 (using just my lovely light little 35mm f1.8 lens). So here’s a wee portrait of the dog wearing glasses… in my son’s inimitable style, he calls him Professor McDog:
