A while ago I told you about an old camera I got. Well, I'm glad to tell you the camera is still in perfect working condition! I did some test shots as you can see below (maybe boring subjects, but I just wanted to test it ASAP so I shot the things close to me, eg. my garden & my pets).

Meet Dolores, one of my chickens! (She preferred to stay anonymous so she shook her head a bit to make sure no other chicken would recognise her on this photo...)

Hahaa, this one's really weird, that's because it's a double exposure (unintentionally, but I like the outcome so now I just say I did that on purpose, right? ^-^). The first picture is a picture I took in my room, you can see 2 mugs and my drapes in the background. The second picture is a picture of my sister I took on our terrace, you can barely see her face, but it's there! (look between the cups!)

A very interesting door...

I took this picture of the sky because I wanted to see how the camera changes the colours. As you can see on the picture, the sky looks very very pale, almost light grey. But when I took the picture, the sky was actually really really blue! So the camera tones the colours down quite a bit! (I like the hint of pink too!)

Neighbourhood watch... I saw there's a little mark on the picture, above one of the windows. I'll have to check if that's because of the scanning or a default on the picture itself...

The garden is getting greener & greener everyday! Hooray SPRINGTIME! (I know, there's a lot of brick walls too, but once the big trees have their leafs, the garden does look better ^-^!)

I hope I will be able to get more pictures out of this little camera (well little, it's pretty heavy actually!), if I do, I'll be sure to share them with you!
Have a great weekend!

There's something very special about old cameras and the grainy sort of shot you get.
I especially like your chicken - the colours don't seem to have been toned down there!
