    Double Whammy! Round-the-Clock Rumble Winners

    This is definitely one of the toughest round-the-clock rumbles we had to judge. A really insane number of submissions presented the infinite possibilities of doubling up their shots. But like all good things, there is an end to this great rumble.

    Picking the Winners

    Picking winners is never easy, and we understand that some of you may question our choice of winners at time, some of you hinting that we have a random system in place doing the work for us. We have also seen several comments recently that many of the winning pictures are good but do not fit the theme of the competition and that submissions are winning that do not meet requirements. That’s why we thought we could take some time and answer some questions.

    Seagull TLR 4B-1

    What can i say, the Seagull is an instant attention getter. How old is this? Where did you find it? Does it work? They don't expect this chunky camera to take the stunning pictures it does. This camera may be one of the reasons film is not dead.

    Greenwich London

    This is a really nice spot in London. There are lovely buildings and great views of the whole of London if you walk to the observatory. There are also museums to keep you entertained to! Because of this there are lots of tourists which is good for candid shots and there are pretty good shops and facilities. It is really easy to get to either by train, bus or even the river!

    Porquerolles

    Porquerolles is an Island in the South of France. A very small one indeed, with only 200 inhabitants. Its circumference is about 30 km so that it's very easy to do a whole tour in just one day. But don't be fooled, this island has a lot of secrets to share, and one week wouldn't be enough to appreciate all of them.

    My favourite camera breaking into in pieces right before my trip to Balos, Greece could have turned into a complete photo-disaster but, lucky me, I ended up giving my Zenit 11 SLR a go.

    Deadstock Tale by grimbyname: Smena Symbol

    In the summer of 2006, while doing a bit of mindless web wandering, I discovered the weird and wonderful community of film-addicted lomographers, and wanted to join in. Looking through the homes and shop, while waiting for a Fisheye 2 to arrive, it didn't take me long to discover that I already possessed a bona-fide lomographic Russian deadstock tool, a Symbol bought for me by my father in the early eighties. He was a keen amateur photographer, owning both Zenit and Praktica SLRs, a Zorki 4K rangefinder, all with a variety of lenses, and his own black and white darkroom kit too. For some reason he'd decided to buy a Symbol each for me and my mother, most probably because they were cheap, about £8 if I remember correctly. I already had a Fed 4 (a 'proper' camera with coupled rangefinder and built-in light meter) that my parents had bought me for being a smart lad for passing my 11-plus exam for the grammar school, so the Symbol, UK branded as Cosmic rather than Smena, saw little use, and I don't even know if any pics remain from its early days. Smena means 'Young Generation', which is when I first became acquainted with the Symbol. Cosmic sounds rather fantastical, spacey even, or perhaps an exclamation from a zoned-out hippy. No matter, I'm not afraid to admit to having been all those things at one time or another. And the photographic evidence of much of that is hopefully locked in a secure vault somewhere. Anyway, I digress.

    Croyde Bay can be found in north Devon. It's an area of outstanding beauty and has the European Blue Flag status for its clean water and sand. It's a great place to visit for a weekend to enjoy the pubs and a bit of surfing if you are that way inclined.
