Setting Up My Old APS Camera – Canon IXUS M-1

I cannot remember my first ever camera, but I do remember I bought it back in 2000/01 from a supermarket as I purchased my groceries. All I knew is that I wanted to document my life away from Kenya.

Later on, when I had enough money, I decided to get the Canon IXUS M-1 and it was my first Canon brand film camera. It is an Advanced Professional System aka APS camera and quite popular at the time of purchase as the film was quite different and I just had to have one. I am actually quite surprised at myself for keeping the camera for this long and in good condition too. Here is a video of me setting the camera up for the first time in 10+ years. ✌🏾


30 Day Photo Challenge: The Recap

As of today, the 30 Day Photo Challenge – November Edition has ended. 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 25 photographers for taking part and allowing me to ‘have fun’ with it. 
It was not easy as some of the submissions were really hard to respond to, but none the less, I stopped overthinking it and just went with my gut even it didn’t make sense. The key thing was to pick one element from the photographs and respond the best way I knew how.
I am still not sure if I will make this a regular thing. Any feedback from you as my readers and followers will be greatly appreciated.
Regular weekly blogging resumes, but be on the lookout for the next 30 Day Photo Challenge coming in April 2021.
