Old Black and White images from Oslo

I started to take pictures when I was just 11 years old, with a Baby Brownie camera that I bought in Cincinnati in Ohio, USA. My next camera was a Czechoslovakian made 6 by 6 camera, a Flexaret. Looking through old negatives today, I have found out that this was a very good camera. And it was a camera I could afford when I was in high school.

Here are some images I took with that camera in the late fifties. Black and white, of course. The top picture in this blog was also taken with that Flexaret.

  1. Wonderful detail. Love the picture of the woman having conversation with a boatman at the harbor.

  2. Some REALLY nice B&W photos… I especially like the composition with the crane. The mention of buying your first camera in Cincinnati (at the first ever CISV summer camp) made me smile, as I was part of that historic occasion as well, tho not as a camper.
