Dolmades in Glebe

I recently acquired an Olympus mju II and have been enjoying the new found freedom from manual focus, allowing a return to a more reactive and looser style akin to when I bought my first DSLR.

In celebration, I thought it would be good to drop the M6 for awhile, put aside the black and white film stock, and try to get outside my normal ways and means of capturing photographs to make this small Paul Graham inspired series that I’ve dubbed “Dolmades in Glebe”.

Despite the camera’s outward appearance (which looks a lot like a cell phone from days gone before smart phones) it handles surprisingly well and I’m generally pleased with the quality of shots I’ve got back on the initial test roll. If you look close you’ll notice it even has the option of imprinting the date onto the shots via its quartz date functionality- I’m assuming my model is from ’96 as this is the default year it loads when the batteries are replaced.

Found Photography: The Lecturer Collection: Part II

I was able to do a little bit of research based on the street names via Google maps to find that a good portion of the photos were taken in Bamberg Germany.

Since I’ve moved flats I haven’t been able to locate my scanning tray for scanning slides; I’m eager to dig it out as I have a small bank of slides that I’ve been looking through with the help of a Hanimex Vistarama Colour Slide Viewer I picked up at the monthly dog track markets last weekend.

This post is a continuation of The Lecturer Collection, a series of found photographs that once belonged to a University of Sydney lecturer.
