Yashica D / film: Agfa optima100Y - John and Stella

Well this is a nice idea Rob, I’d like to think it came from a seaside discussion, though I wonder if it will usurp the paper trail. I thought I might as well dive in feet first seeing as I’m an ‘old hand’ at this lark.

Briefly: down in this corner of the Med. We’re all alive and well, some of us are growing and some shrinking. John’s painting, Merrion [aka – Boo, Tiggs, Alexandros] is scrabbling through the educational system, Branka and Tasso are happy and well and I’m avidly photographing and photoblogging [I’ll add some links below]. Me latest toy and challenge is a 50 yr old Yashica D a twin lens reflex medium format camera and I’m lucky enough that there are still film developing facilities on the island. Needless to say I’m more than a little in love with this camera. So I’ll post a picture that I took with it and pass the cue to someone else.

Keeping in contact with an extended family.

Hi to the family and all our many friends.

I live in Norway, and because we have a very large extended family there are many others that also live or work in lands other than the one that we originated from. I can't answer for anybody else but I find it increasingly difficult to keep up with who is who.

I would dearly love to be able to put some faces to the many names that I hear of from time to time. There are also many of us that are unable to travel to all the small impromptu or large family gatherings but would like to see the results of them.
I would also love to see some photos of where people live (it's always nice to be able to have a setting). As the years go by the family is not only growing in size but also age, updates of the "children" would be fun.

I thought/hoped that maybe this could be a way that we all could stay in contact. The side is open for all to insert there photos, comments, ideas, feelings, greatings and/or whatever else is on your mind at the moment. For it to work though will take some time and effort from respective familys.

Hope to hear from you, possitive or negitive just so long as there is some contact.
