Bluntly put, for the past 20 years this iconic piece of equipment rested peacefully in my Lowe photo-suitcase. This digital post is all about analog picture taking.

Another Volcano ?? – YES YES Mount Pinatubo…

the plan ohhh lucky me… whilst taking a lunch break during work, I casually asked a friend whether “doing Pinatubo” over the weekend is an option and yes – a decision was taken quickly. What is so special about Pinatubo?
