I am writing to inform you of the tragic passing of my father Andy, better known as Filmus Monochromus. His death was due to cancer and was quick and peaceful.

I thank you all for the love and support you have shown my father through the years and i hope to still continue the uploads, not daily but at least frequent.

This is incredibly sad news. Andy was a stand out character in the film photography Tumblr community.

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I’m in the process of fixing and customising an Anniversary Speed Graphic that I bought from eBay.

Originally I wanted to simply make my own bellows and then start using it. As time went on though, I realised that creating your own bellows is trickier than I had appreciated so I’ve now outsourced it to a guy in Belgium who is a pro at this kind of thing.

I didn’t stop there though, while the bellows were away, I started to break down the camera into it’s individual components to clean up and create the look I want for this camera.

I’m having a lot of fun with this project and you can follow me on Instagram to keep up with it.

If there is an image that needed sharing on Tumblr it was this one. Logan, or 6cmzumquadrat as he is on here, was someone I got to know in the Tumblr community a few year ago. He lives in Oregan, USA so when I heard he was visiting Edinburgh on holiday I couldn’t turn down meeting up. We met in the city centre where we had a good chat, shot some film, and exchanged portraits. Meeting like this sums up what the film photography community is (or certainly was) like on Tumblr.

You can check out Logan’s trip here.

Admittedly, this meeting took place two years ago but this roll of film has just found it’s way to the lab.
