    OOO I love this ! gotta just adore that dust!! and also loving that um lace work at the top of the image (sorry can’t think of the right name for it ) it seems to add another dimension again.

  • Hey Jules, thanks so much. My Argoflex is pretty dusty!! I cleaned off the viewfinder a little but the main dust in on the mirror inside and I can’t figure out how to get to it! Sometimes the dust is more visible, depending on the angle of the light when taking the shot.
    Yes, it’s called iron lace work. Uralla has what I’m pretty sure is the oldest working wrought iron lace foundry in Australia.

    Another magical little scene Sylvia- I do love these ttv’s of yours! What is the best type of camera to try this with?

  • Hi Rebecca, thanks so much. I would love to see what you could do with TtV, would be a perfect combination for some of your work. I’m using an old Argoflex Seventy-five (bought from the US on ebay). Any of the old Kodak Duaflex’s are perfect too (wouldn’t mind getting one of these too). I’ve also taken a few TtV’s with an old Nikon, works really well but doesn’t have the square format. I guess you could really try it with any camera that had a big enough viewfinder. Have fun!

    I love this… especially the ironwork at the top! Great work using it to border the image!

  • Hi Alison, thanks so much. This is a gorgeous old, very Australian pub. It has the iron lace work all the way around the front and also on the upper stories on little balconies.

    Reminds me of my younger years- a snapshot of my actual vision when leaving the pub.
    Something about these TtV / Argo flex that is so appealing.. I remember as a kid playing with an old Kodak box camera that was mums when she was a teen. Must ask her about it.

    I like this shot because of the dog in the corner, the street corner door entry, the wrought iron fringe, just a simple shot given a life of its own with the style and way is has been taken. It’s great to see this work Sylvia. This work teaches people there is more out there than the super expensive, new tech photography. Awesome Sylvia ;)
