Vintage Mancunia

Analogue cameras are in fashion again! Well… not really. A neighbour gave me a film camera because she was clearing out her flat, so I inherited this Barclay’s free gift.

With a roll of Kodak 24 already in place, I went out to photograph the places I walk by almost daily, and see if I could turn the vapid into vintage.

A peaceful patch of green in Longsight

The Chapel on Daisy Bank Road

A railway warehouse turned American cinema in Deansgate

Richmond Grove’s white picket fence and gothic Victorian eaves

No colour editing was used in these photos, except the ‘straighten’ button as many of these photos were taken in a hurry. Also, my thumb needs to stop getting in the way…

    It’s a boxy silver camera, no brand except the Barclaycard logo and Made in China at the bottom. Basics.
