  • Off Topic • Re: Mom's little family camera October 21, 2016
    Not a whole lot larger than the Polaroid I inherited from my Aunt many years ago. They had purchased it on the early 60s to take photos of us wonderful nieces and nephews! They gave it to me, I unfolded it and noticed it still had film in it. I took one shot, and the […]
  • Give it Your Best Shot • Re: B&W 120 photo using toy camera in 1968 October 21, 2016

Frank’s a definite Alpha Male


We shall be sending Frank Doorhof one of our original and rare Alpha Male T-shirts, in black, though I’m not sure we have anything quite large enough to fit him – which goes for his personality too. He’s a great workshop presenter, overcoming technical problems by just cracking on with whatever will work best. At . . . → Read More: Frank’s a definite Alpha Male

Alpha in the cathouse….
