Hello old friend. We have previous. But that is ok, I’m happy to take you out and walk you around. Doing what you do best. Capturing moments in time. Moments he’d nod curtly at and enjoy. I hope.
These days, every time I shoot with the Canon AE1 Program is memorable. I usually keep the 28mm on as it is the same as my Leica Q and tends to be the way I view the world. Together they make a light combination and one that people don’t look at twice in the street. Just another camera. Perfect for taking it places a bigger camera normally gets left behind.
The simplicity, and usefulness, of a aperture priority camera is often looked out with an upward nose turn. I for one welcome it. Sometimes it is ok for photography to be easy. To be, of all things, fun. Not a task to be mastered. Focus on the image for a while, ignore the technicalities.
All images were shot with my oddly favourite film Kentmere 400 and scanned at home with a Plustek 8200i.
