never bothered with photograpy then one fateful day in 2008 I did a darkroom course because I had always wondered how the image came out of the paper in the old B&W detective movies. I bought a cheap second hand Nikon F75 and fell in love with analog. Mainly shoot and develop at home these days. I only use film, don't own a dgital camera and have no clue how to use photoshop ..just doesn't gel with my persona. I wish i had more time to spend in the darkroom but then again negatives keep forever and I will have many years to print all these one day !

 

just got a negative scanner April 2009.

 

Enjoying street photography over buildings, as it is challenging and ever changing. Love playing with old cameras as well and cannot resist the challenge of trying them. have over 30 inside a year of collecting and tried 6 seriously -will post here as I try out each camera, have taken to repairing them -it's challenging and fun.

Having just carefully viewed every work in your "Street Photography" set, I am so impressed with your ability to get so close to a range of extremely interesting human interaction. Your work reveals a strong sense for the range, sorrows, and ironies of the human condition, and your technical skills are notably impressive at capturing the essence of the human drama in each work. Seldom, on Flickr, have I found such a range of sustained work, in the area of Street Photography, which manifests such vibrant human and photographic interest and depth.

His work shows a keen compassion and he's knack for being where he needs to be at the precise moment he should be. He's still shoots film and has a love for the darkroom like I've never known before.

Real, that is what comes to mind for me when I think of Anthony. He's REAL. That is a rare commodity these days. His work shows a keen compassion and he's knack for being where he needs to be at the precise moment he should be. He's still shoots film and has a love for the darkroom like I've never known before. One conversation and you know you are talking to a fellow that lives and breathes the entire film process. He's an inspiration to me and his friendship has made me a much stronger photogrpher, I learn from him continually.
