  1. That's not the same man as on Friday's post by any chance. Were you following him around?

    There is a good story in this photo - something wistful about an old man looking at old photographic equipment. Memories of captured memories.

  2. Hm, one of the tourists in the photo before? Seems like he is wearing a camera belt - perhaps even with an analog slr attached to it? Wondering where time went ...
    I see something like a stuffed bear in the window's reflection, what's this? It's creepy. It is watching the man ...

  3. I simply saw the boy in the man: the boy who used to look at electric cars knowing he could not afford one. The hand is very affecting: you and I realise he is holding onto the railing because he is old and frail. However, the little boy within him is holding on through eagerness. The reflection is not that of a bear: it it he child wanting to be let free.

  4. Boy, can I relate to this one. I've been busy buying up old film cameras and other gear, just working away at my little experimentation's!

    In fact...wait...is that me looking in that window!

    Nah...he's a lot younger than I am!

  5. That's one for me. Can't resist old kit; got my eye on a Kiev rangefinder with 50/1.8 Helios lens. Just might have to buy it this week.

  7. Now this photo makes me feel old - I like those things - my old cameras - my portable Soviet photo lab. I like the digital pics though - no mess and always a chance to save a disastrous photo :)

  8. Eamon... no not the same person... good try though although now you have made me think that I should post a follow up to this guy as I do have one...:)

    The reflection is his shadow and Julie I agree 100%... what I thought too.

    Jacob... really? But you write so neatly!!!!

    Ellie - a photograph please ?

    Martina... it is a little creepy but dont look too deeply into this one:)

    John.... I love your blog and the photographs although for me I am not a fan of making this more difficult :)

    Nicolas - thanks for stopping by and I agree about the similarity
