No dancin' today.....!!

There was no Cha Cha Cha ing going on at the old Town Hall on Sunday morning! The Leederville Town Hall is a heritage building full of the charm of a bygone era, polished wooden floors, theatre stage, I can only imagine the good times had here.  It is hired out for many things now including art shows and dancing classes and as much as I like to watch the Tango, Rumba and Jive there were much more interesting goings on there on Sunday morning. Every three months the Workshop Camera Club hold a market. I am almost 100% sure that every one of you would thoroughly enjoy this event, oh the treasures you can find and even if you come away with nothing the joy of  perusing everything from a 1912 pocket camera to an up to date SLR is first-rate!! The second picture is of a table full of Pentax treasures and although I've been using a Lumix FZ100 lately, I will never abandon my Pentax K10, one thing I did notice this time was either I'm shrinking, or there were many more very tall people around, had to duck under a few armpits to get to view the goods.....!!

  6. I SO wish we had something like this. But we're a big country and trades like this are mostly done on Ebay or Craig's List.

  10. HHHMMMmmm... next time I'll go & take my still-operational film camera!! Even though most of the pix on my blog were taken with it, it gets more laughs than accolades!!

    So great you had such a good time!!

  11. I could eventually drop all my old lenses and SLR bodies for a couple of batteries. Who need them anymore? I am not a nostalgic for an era when taking a picture was more difficult than now and immensely more expensive...

  13. Like VP I enjoy looking at these old pieces, but rather have the convenience of modern gear...can't imagine going back to the days of working out whether the shot is worth one of my 24 shots that day! Nice pix!

  14. Agreed. A grand idea to hold one of these. Lots of armpits to worm around too.

  15. Now this is an event I could really get into. I wonder if they had a Sony wide angle lens. I've been looking for one of those.

  16. Fabulous event there! I'm not sure I could keep up with all the photography lingo but I'd be very interested to attend if I were in the area! :D

  17. Got a Russian 1940es Lubitel camera once in one of those markets. Made excellent photos until someone stole it.
