December Reflections Day 15 - Favourite Camera

I took this photograph in 1985 with my favourite camera, an Olympus OM1 – it’s a reflection of a somewhat punk version of me, in a mirror (edited to turn it round the right way).

I had always wanted an OM1 – I love the ultra-light body. I bought it in my final year at university, from a fellow student – only a couple of weeks after I’d bought a Praktica camera, thinking that was the only camera I’d be able to afford!

I don’t tend to use it nowadays, sadly – I prefer the immediacy of digital photography. I’ve heard that film photography is making a comeback, though, so you never know…
