This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Surprise.
Something different from me for a surprise, a post about being surprised by some of the photos I have discovered while digitising my film archives.
When I was digitising some of my black and white negatives I discovered a photo of a camera bag in snow taken in the early 1980s. Shortly after that I was backing up photos on an old tablet and discovered another photo of a camera bag in snow. At that point I realised I had quite a few photos of various camera bags in snow taken over the decades.
I don’t know why I took them unless it was simply a record of the conditions. So a thought a selection of the photos would be a surprising contribution to the challenge.
My Tenba P595 in the snow in Hatherton, Cheshire in the early 1980s. Tenba bags were newly imported into the U.K. back then.
My Tenba P895 in the snow on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. By the time the photo was taken this bag was around 30 years old.
My Domke F-6 sitting in the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula. A smaller bag I got for my DSLR and kit of manual focus prime lenses. Known as Domkenstein due to a third-party padded insert and shoulder pad with padded dividers from a Tenba bag.
My Domke F-2 sitting in the snow on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. My bag for a DSLR and fast zoom lenses.
