Dinorwic Quarry is an old Welsh Slate Quarry in Snowdonia that closed at the end of the 1960’s. When it was up and running it was one of the largest quarries in the world.
It’s huge slag heaps, loom dark and grey over the village I live in. I once thought it was a depressing sight but I have grown to love the quarry, even looking to it with more affection that the mountains that surround us on other sides. In sunshine it becomes a playground for climbing, exploring, and our infamous picnics. In the mist and rain it looks eerily moody, yet when the clouds part the wet slate glistens and begs you to visit once more.
Some of the real treasures of the Quarry are high up and quite hard to find. There is an old ‘Caban’ where the Quarrymen just walked out left their coats and shoes behind when they left (mmm… did they go barefoot?), huge buildings full of interesting machinery and other tiny buildings with the smallest fireplaces and wooden benches inside. I’m looking forward to sharing summer evenings up their with my new Diana!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

Rome is known for its rich history and culture that the world is fondly familiar with; however, there is a side of the Roman capital yet to be seen. Roman goddess Venus graces Rome with love and affection by musing the Hungarian photographer Milán Rácmolnár to paint the city in old rose.
Photography became his creative escape in the 90's when his country was facing a civil war. Years later, he moved to New York where he continued doing what he loves the most. Boogie had various exhibitions over the years and his sixth monograph "A Wah Do Dem" was one of the most controversial ones.
