Maybe that’s it, simplicity, the idea of just loading a roll of film, firing off 24-36 shots and seeing what comes back without having to think too much.

Below are the first few of the images taken on a roll of Agfa Vista Plus 200, I was quite impressed with them for such a basic camera.

Below is a link to my Flickr page, on it is a large selection of photo’s I have taken over the last few years, both film and digital, and I’ve made the assumption that if perhaps you’re reading this blog on a regular basis that maybe you’d have an interest in taking a look.
