    Hello from Cape Town

    Hi All,

    I live in Cape Town, South Africa. Oddly buying a DSLR in 2007 sparked an interest in analogue photography when I realised I still had a Yashica-Mat LM in a cupboard as well as a Zorki-C I had bought in a Bulgarian flea market about 15 years previously.

    A quick trip to the local camera repair man and I was the proud owner of two very capable cameras. Since then they have bred like rabbits in my house and while I have my favourites they all get their day out once in a while.

    The main shooters at the moment seem to be a Minolta Hi-Matic 11 and a Rolleicord Va

    I built a darkroom with mostly donated gear. At the middle of everything is a Simmon-Omega D2.

    Some of my efforts are on Flickr:

    Welcome to Apug, glad to see another real camera shooter join us. Good luck with the dark room, it's the best part of photography. After over 45 years of it I still find it magical to watch a print develope.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!
