Photo Of The Day: “Fourteen” 😍 Rolleiflex 2.8F

Good morning you awesome war torn camera geeks! Recently I found this photo and it’s quite timely because this week, the little baby in the photo is turning fourteen! I can hardly believe it!

This image was a self portrait taken in 2007 with a Rolleiflex 2.8F with the 80mm f/2.8 Planar lens. Film unrecorded but I’d bet it’s either Tri-X or T-Max. When it comes to film choices, I’m nothing if predictable 😍

I don’t think I’ve used a self timer before or since on a TLR!! Have you?

Friend, as you know there’s always a healthy dose of nostalgia on my pages and it’s not without reason. This weekend the twentieth anniversary of the September 11th 2001 attacks came to pass. Twenty years in the blink of an eye.

Same here with this photo. 2007 was a year that changed my life and yet every year it is seemingly passing by ever faster, becoming a fading memory. I’m not sure how other people deal with the passage of time but I’m just a sentimental fool I guess. My Dad was like that, I guess it runs in the family!

I cannot stop time but I can record it through photographs. I suggest you do the same because in the end memories are all we’ve got. Have a beautiful week good peeps! And thanks😍🙏🏻👍🏻

      1. Zoe 14!! That day at the Botanical Gardens when I took that iconic photo of Zoe with MrsB was that long ago….holy smokes. Life goes by so fast especially when kids are involved. Blaise just started Kindergarten and he was born what?….yesterday?? I did use the self timer on my Rolleiflex 2.8F. The one on my 3.5F is stuck. Beautiful BW family shot from the bygone days.
        BTW what do you think of this for a top of the tops:

    1. Bro! That Dream Lens on eBay is the dream of a dream! Looks too mint but way overpriced I think. Appreciate your comments and I don’t think our friends would mind if you left it in the wrong place 😀 Life moves way too fast but friends last for life! Regards to Mrs. B, I’m going to look for that pic from the Botanical Gardens. That was back in 2012 can’t believe it! 😍📸👍🏻
