A new photo every day for a year in 2023

Picture No 18

In yesterdays Blog picture the camera I featured was an Olympus Pen E-P1 digital camera.

The camera I’m featuring today is an Olympus Pen F 35mm single-lens reflex film camera produced between 1963 and 1966. The camera is a half-frame camera, Half frame means that the camera uses an 18×24 mm vertical portrait format, producing twice the pictures on a roll of 135 film as the regular 36×24 mm format. So a roll of 36 exposure film would in fact give you 72 exposures !.

Yesterdays picture of my Olympus Pen E-P1 was the first Micro Four Thirds digital camera made by Olympus based on the original Olympus Pen F 35mm single-lens reflex film camera.

Why is this camera so very special, it belonged to my late Father-in-Law Brian Scull.

In the summer I am intending to put a film through the camera and I’ll share my results.

Over the years as one does (or perhaps it’s just me) I have collected a few camera’s, over time I will share some pictures of the camera’s that I have collected.

Tonight’s picture is of the first digital camera I owned. The camera is an Olympus Pen E-P1.

I’m not saying more about the camera but it’s linked to tomorrow night’s picture, Betty tomorrow night’s picture is for you.

I’ve recently purchased a photo light box to help take pictures for my Blog, the picture below shows the light box in use for today’s picture.

I just happened to be looking for something in my garage and a found the badge featured in today’s picture.

Working for Kodak Ltd in Harrow was a huge part of my life. Over the years various badges were given out to celebrate things, I can’t remember why we given the badge in today’s photograph, perhaps is was something to-do with WW P231 Project.

The words on the badge read “Emulsion Manufacturing – Where Quality is in the making“. The first part of the process to make photographic emulsion was called Making and was made in a vessel called the Maker, so perhaps it was to mark the WW P231 upgrade of all the Making vessels at the various sites around the world.

I had intended take my camera to St Albans today, but the persistent rain decided me against taking it. It was abit of a disappointment to say the least as I had hoped to get some good pictures.

So I had to make do with a walk over the local Amazon Hub to pick a parcel.

Today has been a better day weather wise, no rain and blue sky’s, with the added bonus of not working today. I have managed to take a few pictures in the garden. Probably like most of you over the years we have all collected a few garden ornaments. Over the coming weeks I’ll will feature the ones in our garden. I thought it only appropriate introduce the ornament that we have had the longest and my favourite.

Meet Nobby the gnome.
