self portrait

Stefan 2009, with my Pentax 67:
Stefan Ansorge 2009
My blog is now almost one year old and I thought it is time for a self reflection, in the mirror that is!

In November I had bought a second hand Pentax 67 when I spent a few days in Seoul. The Korean Won dropped dramatically due to the American credit crunch and made old film cameras even cheaper than they already are. This wonderful camera was an absolute bargain.

About self portraits:
It seems to be the fate of photographers that no one tends to take images of them. I have hundreds of portraits of family, friends ad all sorts of people. But nobody appears to be interested in my image, ha ha! So the only way to get my own portrait is to pose this way.
I like the soft colors of the Kodak Portra. Apart from that it is a reminder that we are all getting older, including me!

    great colors! I’m totally jealous you find this camera at good price and that you have 2! If you want to sell one, please let me know! Do you have pentax 67 or 67II? I wonder if you have both that you could advice me which one to buy…
    Cheers from Argentina
