GIVING AWAY MY FIRST CAMERA..
so i’m giving back and learning to let go. i’m giving up my Yashica Electro 35 GSN. this was my first camera that i bought when i decided to start shooting a few years ago. this is the one that i learned to shoot on and the one that i did my first sets on. this is my baby and i love it. it means to much to me to sell so i’m giving it to someone that will use it.
for those of you that don’t know, the Electro has one of the most amazing lenses i’ve ever used. it has a fixed lens 50mm f1.7; the color rendition is gorgeous and it is tack sharp! here are some examples: Melanie Bushnell, Tarren Johnson
THIS INCLUDES: Yashica Electro 35 GSN, Wide angle and Telephoto lens adapters and Viewfinder, Adapter case, Original manual, and the Original camera cover. (the camera and cover look almost brand new)
the thing is, i don’t use it much anymore and i want it to go to a good home where it will continue to make gorgeous photos..
HERE ARE THE RULES: you must use the camera; it is not meant to sit on a shelf.. you cannot sell this camera. if you stop using it you must give it away to someone who needs a camera.
TO ENTER: you must reblog this post to give others the chance to enter, and you must enable you must enable questions so i can contact you for your info. i will pick the winner from tumblr and facebook.
i will choose the winner at random on October 17th. thank you everyone for supporting myself and my work.. this is my small way of giving back :)
sweet mother of god!
completely shocked by the response. i really had no idea people would want it so bad.. kinda makes me want to give away another one :)
i would love to help you all out but the drawing will be completely random. best of luck on the 17th!
Soccer’s Lost Boys, Stranded in Istanbul
Adam McCauley of the NYT and photographer Jason Andrew travel to Istanbul, Turkey to investigate the story behind the lives of 40 Nigerian men whose dreams of entering the world of professional soccer have become marred through a scam of dire proportions.
In March 2010, more than 40 Nigerians flew to Istanbul, carrying an invitation to try out with Turkey’s professional soccer teams. Within a week of arriving, the players realized that the promises had been false, that their money had been stolen and that they had nowhere to go but the streets.
They’ve been there ever since.
Wow. — Tanya B.
“Show me how you do that trick”
Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But, since no one was listening, everything must be said again.

Ha! Sorry for the double post. It’s such a good picture that I’m just going to leave it. —Wright
