Nikon FM2 with 50mm Series E Lens

The camera with its one eye understands that is has been left on the shelf, but it does not understand why.

Try telling it that loading it with film is like stepping back into the Victorian era – all clacking wheels and fiddly threading of the film in the sprocket.

Try telling it that film takes an age to get to see the results – with the long drawn-out process of developing and printing.

It will only look back at you with its unblinking eye, waiting.
