    Falling In Love With The Diana F+ (Again)

    I'll be honest - I never had much luck with the Diana F+. I loved it the first time I used it, then it went downhill from there. I've been picking it back up recently, and well, I think I'm in love again!

    Ensign Bellows Camera

    I don't really know much about this camera, I tried doing a bit of research about it but came up with not a lot about this camera and a whole lot about other ensign cameras, it was made by the ensign company which started production of cameras in 1905 after many years of producing optical glass etc. as far as i can gather/guess this camera started production in the late 1920's.

    Wimbledon Common - No Wombles in Sight

    Fictional litter picking rodents may be the thing which Wimbledon Common is best known for, but so far I’ve never seen a womble. What you definitely find is a beautiful piece of common land, with woods, lakes, fantastic walks, and horse riding toffs.

    Maymont Park

    Wandering about and taking in the scenery is one of my favorite pastimes; I’m betting it’s one of yours too. You can take in scenery just about anywhere, but Maymont is pretty special. It’s 100 acres of pure green beauty interspersed with various gardens and animal sanctuaries. In my eyes, it’s like a miniature version of New York’s Central Park (minus the ice skating rink) in the middle of Richmond.

    My Favorite Patch of Greenery: Gunung Lang, Ipoh

    My husband and I took a break during the weekend and paid a visit to Gunung Lang equipped with a Lomo LC-Wide and a BeLOMO Elikon 535. Once in, we were greeted with a magnificent lake enclosed by majestic limestone outcrops surmounted by lush greenery. Across the lake lies a landscaped park that is only accessible by boat. Fortunately, a jetty provides ferry services through water taxis for visitors like us to reach the park.
