Some of you might remember my previous post on film cameras and my (slight) obsession with the top end range Nikon film cameras. Since this post, I have now become  a few steps closer to my dream of owning all of the high end Nikon film cameras – from the original Nikon F up to their latest film flagship the Nikon F6. I am very proud to say that, thanks to E-bay (and the wife’s permission), I have already bought the F, F3 and F4 cameras, so my collection is indeed growing!

On a recent trip to Istanbul we loaded the F4 with a selection of Ilford black & white films and I was very impressed with the results. You’ve got to just love the grain and mood that you can only create with a film camera! These are a selection of images taken around the fish markets near the Galata Bridge, the famous Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar (one of the largest covered markets in the world with 60 streets and over 5000 shops). Istanbul, by the way, is one of the most amazing places we’ve ever visited and we hope you enjoy looking through these few images as much as we enjoyed being there and shooting them!
