This small SLR was the start into my photography „career“. It was given to me as a present by an old neighbor who just heard about my effort to start into b&w photography at school. He said he can`t hold it anymore and it`s better in my hands than dusty in his storage rack. It came with an Olympus flash, manual, a 35mm Zuiko lens, a 50mm Zuiko lens and a Tokina 70-150mm
This still is one of the smallest SLR`s I`ve ever seen. It runs 35mm film with film speeds from 12ASA up to 1600ASA, shutter speed is from 1/1000 to B, the shutter release button can be run by a cable release, there is a self timer and of course a tripod mount. There is the possibility to adjust over- or underexposure in your shot in 1/3 steps by the little knob on top where you set your film speed. You see, there is almost nothing left a photographer dreamed of in the 80ies.
There are so much accessories for the OM-system, it`s really unbelievable. I bought for mine another 100mm lens and a winder which I unfortunately haven`t used by now. If you`ll ever get the chance to get your hands on one of these don`t hesitate, you`ll fall in love with that small thing.
In the meantime the old neighbor died but the camera will keep him in my mind as a good man alive…
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In June, I tried EBS (exposing both sides) again to see if I could get perfect symmetrical images—half redscale, half normal.
