Just charging the oul digital camera at the moment for the weekend and got to thinking about the cameras I have.

I have one these (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35) for the loads of pics days:

I have one of these because I never owned a "proper" camera and got it as a wedding pressie. But I love it...

And recently I started using this one:

The last camera is from 1973. It belonged to me Mum's Uncle who was a professional photographer at home in Donegal. He has some amazing photographic equipment and even more amazing pictures.
A few years back a selection of his pictures were displayed in Temple Bar at the request of some Museum and are still there. He had everything cataloged so perfectly and in chronological order.
There is just something special about these old cameras. Just using them makes you feel so different with the weight and the care required to take the pic. I also feel like the photographer from The Omen.
