Past & Furious

Today’s my birthday.

So I loaded my Polaroid 600SE with an expired 03/2009 Polaroid 125i film
and went out wandering to get a birthday’s picture, hopefully.

And I got it.

Looking at it I had already a title in mind:

Past and Furious!
Film: Polaroid 125i  Camera: Polaroid 600SE 1/125 - f 8
Film: Polaroid 125i
Camera: Polaroid 600SE
1/125 – f 8

Agfa Box 50

I had the luck of winning a camera from Revela-T, a beautiful AGFA Box 50.

It works at 1/60 or B time, with f/11 aperture, 120mm film for 8 shots of 6×9.

Once I got it from Pep, I had to immediately start walking around and take my first 8 B&W shots, finding the correct light exposition.

Here the results


Lomo(graphy) cameras are already “mainstream”, but keeping that allure of Soviet Union that charms many of us photographers, hipsters, nostalgic and makers.

I find that among the (growing) amount of these cameras, one of the most significant is the Lubitel 166.

For its aesthetic, viewfinder, focusing… its personality!

Your are not taking your Lubitel with you to take pictures, you are going out together at most or, usually, your Lubitel is taking you out.

Here few pics of our walking, with some views of the former Encants Vell Market in Barcelona:

I Can


To take a can and convert it into a pinhole camera is something that many photographers have done and will keep doing for the next millennium.

A positive black&white paper is the sensitive support recording the light and image, following the ancient camera obscura principles. The negative resulting is the either scanned and inverted into a positive image, or simply reprinted with another black and white paper.

Distortions and a plethora of defects enrich the resulting pictures, as only such an analogue technique can obtain.
