Captured on film by LordLJCornellPhotos Captured on film by LordLJCornellPhotos
This is the harbour at Johnshaven fishing village in East Scotland. I was staying there a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely time.
While I was there I shot a roll of film through an old camera I have from 1913. This photograph is from that roll of film. I have scanned it. 
This is the camera I used (see below) with some information about the camera and how hard it was to use. I can't tell you how delighted I am with this simple picture :) Just click on the picture of the camera for more information.

Shooting with hope by LordLJCornellPhotos

It's funny. I knew the camera was from 1913 but it is only in conversation that I realised it is 103 years old and it still works..........just about ;)

It's amazing that you can take pictures like this with that strange looking box!

How about that ! :wow:
I wonder how many of our digital cameras will be around in 2120. Very few in working order I'll wager, the batteries will have had it. ;)

Go for it ! (I did) You may have to give up some things but it's worth it for the peace.
I knew a man who worked at the stock exchange. He got to middle age and was fed up and disheartened with the commuting, the stress, the time away from his family and so on. So he packed it in. He made some puppets and a theatre (like punch and judy) and started touring primary schools doing educational shows. Of course, he had to give up holidays and the things his previous salary allowed him to have, but he was a much happier man and so was his family. ;)

You must have been doing photography for a long, long time. You seem to have a huge collection of cameras and such...and vast knowledge of what you are doing. It must have taken years and years...
I'm glad it worked too, :nod:.
Most welcome, Lawrence. :hug:

And yes it has :)
I was amazed it worked as it seems to have bits of fishing wire attached to the shutter release to make it work :lol:
