A photowalk during the Covid lockdown in december 2020. I took some pictures in my neighbourhood with the Voigtlander Bessa R. I have many camera’s, mostly SLR and I have to get used to a rangefinder. I like this image. People and businesses had to find ways to get around during the lockdown and here you can see what they came up with.
When I was young I didn’t have a camera. My father had a camera but I didn’t dare to touch it and he never let me try it. I remember a Olympus half frame and a small Rollei. In the mid seventies I got a 126 cassette film camera but I can’t remember the brand, I think Agfa. That summer we traveled for the first time to Spain and I did feel like a real photographer. Proudly showing my camera that I carried in a small etui fastened at my belt I felt great!
After that I visit every camera store I did see and I looked at the camera’s in the shop window and get inside for all the leaflets of brands as Hasselblad, Nikon, Pentax etc. With the little money that I had as a 14 year old kid far out of reach!
