There just aren’t many photographic shops anywhere anymore. This place is like a well packed hive of real cameras. Baskets near overflow with bargain cameras whilst cameras line near every wall, staring out like something out of a sci-fi film.
They carry digital and film cameras (medium and large format, cine cameras, lomo and Polaroid) I still use film sometimes, I find it just that bit more artistic. When I go into a place like this I’m reminded of the long and complex history of photography but also how fantastical and magic it all was. Living in a time when people share pictures of nearly every meal it’s easy to forget how special capturing light and memories really is.
They also have a monthly changing display of customers’ photographs in a wee gallery.
Perhaps Film photography will never truly die and I hope not, as long as there are places like this I can live in hope.
