Greece. Athens. Home. Teenage emotions running amok…

[Lomo-Smena 8, Ilford FP4, scanned from B&W negative]


My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    A trimphone isn’t it? I remember their ring tone. I was 10 that year and didn’t worry about girls! (Did she or didn’t she?)………

  • LOL, Not a trimphone, it was a 1955 Siemens & Halske. And no, she didn’t ;-)
