Hey! I’m back! Well, I am still on the road but nestled comfortably in a kind size hotel bed getting ready to get some sleep. I decided that since I had wireless internet, what better than to post a Daily Inspiration! This one was sent in by Peter Bender and was shot in the 70’s on film…here is what Peter said about it:
“The attached photo is one that I clearly remember taking in the mid-70s in Sydney. The people in the photo were watching a popular Australian band, “The Bushwackers”, who were performing for the lunch time crowds, however there was one gentleman who was more concerned with enjoying his drink. I hope you enjoy the photo, I certainly enjoyed finding the negative again after 30 years and especially as it was one that I so clearly remember taking.
When I look back at some of my negatives over the last 30 years I’m amazed at the overall quality and dynamic range that they were able to record and wonder why I so readily embraced digital photography entirely. I now realise there is a place for both.
BTW, the photo was taken with a 50 mm lens on either a Minolta SRT-101 or an Olympus OM1. I just can’t exactly remember the date the photo was taken… that’s the problem with film, there’s no EXIF data.
Cheers, Peter Bender
that man looks completely wasted, got to love australia.
I seen some of Jim Marshalls photos and was amazed at the sharpness and clairity. Same here. I’m thinking of getting an old RF or something like yours.
