Week 7 – Back with the FED

Well after last weeks hiccup, it feels good to get back out there without the Holga, as much as I like it, it’s not the same. These were taken over the last week, starting off in Chinatown for the Chinese New Year Celebrations, and then on a day out with my wife and daughter. FED4…

Week 5 – More Nikon F2A
