Unboxing the Legend - Brand New In Box Early 70's Diana F Camera by Simeon Smith

Diana Day is August 5th. Take photos using a Diana Camera or similar clone and upload the photo to social media using the hashtag #DianaDay. I'll be out shooting in Swansea, give me a shout if you'd like to join me in person and borrow a Diana Camera.

Sometimes you find something really, REALLY special. I've seen boxed Diana's before, but never one that has almost definitely never been used. There's still a little paper tab in the film compartment, and the strap has never been unravelled. 

Anyway, enough said, here are the photos: 

If you really feel the need to own this, give me a shout with an interesting swap you'd like to make to hello@awonderfulkindofimpossible.co.uk 

5 Photography Quotes that have Inspired Me by Simeon Smith

I started writing about these quotes, but I stopped. I'd rather let these great influencers speak for themselves. 

“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” - Henri Cartier-Bresson

"Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.” - Diane Arbus

"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer." - Ansel Adams

"More Megapixels, More problems." - Eric Kim

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera." -  Dorothea Lange

I shot all the photos in this article to Fomapan 400 on a Lubitel Universal TLR from 1980.
