I've been enjoying myself with taking pictures at two amateur (running) races these past couple of days. The films are off to be developed, so some results will appear here within a week's time or so.
A new camera was used for the first time. I'm really excited to see the resulting pictures.
Below is a picture of the two cameras I am servicing at the moment - to be shipped off to happy customers from my Etsy shop. They both are Olympus cameras.

I am expecting the delivery of the negatives from last week's two excursions any day now. Very exciting!
Another delivery to look forward to is my SLR returning from repair at a camera workshop in Tampere, Finland.
Some time ago I reached out to former customers of mine who'd bought cameras from my webshop getOurBooks at Etsy.

know what happens to them. Through the "getOurBooks Recap" some of
the cameras get a story.
A lot of the submissions are awarded with really exciting token gifts. It is not too late to contribute!

Once inside, you can enjoy the circular skylight in the cement echo chamber. I shot this photo on the Olympus XA3 using experimental hand fogged film…
