In Camera...

A while ago I posted about how damage to vintage photos wasn't necessarily the end of the world to a collector of old vernacular photos... the same could be said about poor photographic focus. I have been saying how life is currently a little hectic and, adding to that is that is the fact that R has recently been confirmed redundant at work. This means that come the middle of November, if he hasn't found something new, things could get a little hairy... but the flip side is that he got to keep the two weeks of annual leave he had booked off and so we went yesterday to Brighton for a day out and, this is a long-winded way of saying, it was there that I found this magnificent specimen for 50 pence at the bottom of a box. we are, of course, used to the 'mirror shot' genre of photo in this facebook age but this must have been something a little more avant garde when this was taken, no wonder his focus was a little off... which I think just makes the image rather more compelling...
