Once again I’ve recently been putting some of the photographs I’ve taken with my old Pentax S1a film camera into frames, and I think a few of them work rather well. This is one of my friends, caught we as we were out taking photographs one day around town. I have to say that, even though I used cheap colour film, I love the way that this photograph has turned out. There is something in the crispness and texture of film photographs that I just cannot seem to see or feel in examples of digital photography. Of course the flip side of this is the fact that I used a cheap digital camera to take a picture of the photograph in the frame to enable me to post it here!
The Pentax S1a was made in the early 1960’s and still works like a dream, no batteries needed. The digital camera? Broke tonight after only a few years use. Typical right?
Here is another quick photograph of the sea, how I love the sea. Again I have put it into a cheap frame but I think the white/cream highlights the colours within the photograph itself. Also this one has turned out much better than expected. I expected it to be slightly scuzzy and not really crisp or clear at all, but it has pleasantly surprised me.
Here you go:
I’ve also got a few more photographs in frames but as I said the camera has broken so I unfortunately cannot upload them here at the moment. I also think it is worth putting your own photographs in frames as it is a nice personal touch and evokes happy memories, and it makes you remember that being creative and spontaneous can lead to some lovely pieces of home art.
