Photography Site of the Day –

This camera collector’s site,, is quite nice. It is run by a Frenchman named Michel.

He has a short, but hopefully growing, section of techniques that he is building such as this one on How to Change the Cover Glass of a Daguerreotype.

I thought the page of pictures of the packaging from glass plates was a very nice touch.

He also has a pictorial guide to Leica camera models. Short and sweet. I like it.

The forum looks interesting, but I need to work on my French skills.

The only difficulty I had was with viewing the photo albums. I use firefox. With it, his photo albums displayed poorly. The pictures became a continuous horizontal row of pictures that required a excessive scrolling. I pulled it up in internet explorer and the site displayed beautifully. All in all, it’s a nice site.

    I discovered this post when checking the list of url pointing on my website
    Thank you so much for these comments, I really appreciate.
    I will investigate the issue you mention when using firefox. I had plan to redo the photo albums presentation anyway, so I will solve this problem of rendition.

    Kind regards to all.
