    This is a song by a Belgian band called de Nieuwe Snaar (the New String) and it is called De Fotografie (The Photography).

    English Lyrics are in the Youtube Description.

    While these days my photography is digital, using my phone, there was a time when I had a darkroom and spent a lot of time with film. I still have two Miranda SLRs with interchangeable lenses in my basement with the trays, contact box and enlarger.

    I always envied folks with Nikon Fs.

    The first song that came into my head when I saw Steve's title was Grit Laskin's The Photographers, a double entendre song that has been covered by Pete Seeger. Grit is a Toronto singer/ songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist/ luthier who plays both solo and with the group Friends Of Fiddler's Green.

    Here's Grit at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival.

    A couple of examples of Grit's luthiery.

    This tune is not an example of ukulele wizardry, But I love it.

    We are off to a flying start. I am particularly taken with Jim's recording, which manages to mention almost every brand of camera, but which might not get played on daytime radio. Excellent.

    The photographs in this one are metaphorical, but that does make them easier to develop. Also you're less likely to run out of film.



    There seems to be thousands of amateur covers of this on youtube, so I guess one more won't do any harm.

    Hey, Steve!

    Great theme, cheers for hosting!

    I didn't have time to get anything together for last week so I've dived straight in here with the very first song that sprang to mind. I've chucked some melodica and harmonica at it. Hopefully they'll stick...

    I'm currently listening to BBC 6 Music, where there is a programme on at the minute celebrating the anniversary of the first instant camera, which was apparently introduced today in 1947. So I'm hearing lots of camera themed songs this afternoon on the radio as well as in this thread!

    I've also just learned that the inventor of the instant camera, and founder of Polaroid, was called Edwin. Clearly a sound fellow.

    I was hoping you'd do this one, Wim. I had the CD in my hands earlier today. Looking forward to hearing your version ;-)

    Funny thing is I never heard of them before today, it is not the kind of music I normally listen to.
