I love mechanisms, mostly cameras. The articles here have some illustrative pictures showing how some things work in real life, but it is not intended to stand in for a photo gallery/critique site. The tone will not be serious (nor has it ever been), so don’t take anything here too seriously.
If you have a particular topic of interest, float it in the guestbook, and I’ll see if I have material on the old site covering it. And if I don’t, I may just sit down and write it (provided, of course, that I have some basis for doing so).
In the event you’d like to write a guest piece, contact me with your idea. I would especially welcome instructional pieces on in-camera or in-darkroom effects – since we all know what can be done with things like Photoshop.
