Summer snaps

I bought myself a 1960's canon FT off ebay for a bargain so I've been having a bit of fun over these balmy summer months! Its a bit of a tank but I'm told the weight is an advantage in reducing blur when the shutter moves. I'm not sure if the quality will translate so well on a screen but here you go. Its a joy using real film and I love the grainy and more real quality. I like how the light bursts in some of the photos come out really geometric!

Early evening sunshine in the park.
On the beach at Hurst spit in Hampshire.
My gorgeous little next door neighbour Tilly wearing mum's glasses!
Colin in Hyde Park wearing the monkey hat.
Little birdies at Tropical world. Not sure what happened with the light but I'm loving the blue and orange bursts of colour, the birds look like they're on fire!
