Olympus OM-1

My friend Maher was in town a couple of weeks ago and it seemed a perfect opportunity to take my OM-1 out for a spin. I picked this one up on ebay for under 10eur ...I'd had my mind set on finding one ever since I read that the legendary Observer magazine portrait photographer, Jane Brown, used only these... buying them whenever she saw one. So here's a selection from my first roll of film on it...

Jazz à Paris

My brother was in Paris playing with his original Jazz Trio last week... with Julien on drums and Justin (who flew in especially from San Francisco) on the double bass. Great to see them play together again after a fair few years, and to see a host of friendly and familiar faces in the audience. It was also so nice to spend a couple of days in Paris on 'leisure time' and not for work... managed to squeeze in a few exhibitions, seeing friends and family, some touristing around Montmartre and testing out another camera (results soon if they are any good!)
