The Traveling Yashica Project
The internet is a truly wonderful thing, about a month ago my pal Inge tweeted about the traveling Yashica project. The concept is pretty simple. Hamish posted out a Yashica T5 35mm compact camera to one of his twitter contacts – they shot with it for a week. Develop the film and email the results and a few words about the camera for publication on his website. The camera is then posted onto the next user.
I was the fifth person in line to shoot with the camera. I loved the camera and was delighted to be involved with the project. You can read my thoughts on the camera over on the 35MMC site. This is the home to some real passion about compact 35mm cameras and is really worth a visit. I am sure Hamish would love to see his camera go all the way around the world so please get in touch with him on Twitter.
