Happy birthday Mamaia – Canon 5D
Classic camera? Some might say the Canon 5D is that. Nevertheless it is very unusual for me to post a picture here not taken on film except for pix of my classic film equipment.
But this is just to say a belated ‘Happy Birthday’ to Mamaia, my grandmother (or rather my grandmother in law) who was 90 years old yesterday. She’s a remarkable lady, still looking after her chickens and working her land in the village of Popricani. She’d be worth a ‘grumpytyke’ post in herself – maybe he’ll do it soon.
The photo was taken on a Canon 5D, sold some months ago.
Sorry for the long absence from this blog. I’ve been incredibly busy, basically creating a completely new website for the charity for which I work (WordPress of course but ‘.org’ not ‘.com’) and, over the past few days creating a blog for the village in which I live (this went ‘live’ on 8/9 August). (If you want to know more there’s more on grumpytyke’s blog). I’m now on annual leave so hopefully will develop a few films in the next day or two and get back to posting as normal – pix on film – on this blog; I’ll be attempting to go back a couple of weeks on my reader too to see what I’ve missed.
