Yashica Samurai X3.0 #3 and Pruning The Holly Tree


Thought it was about time the Holly Tree had a good pruning. With all the rain we have had this year it’s grown like mad and is blocking out a lot of light in my back room. So out came the ladder, and armed with a pruning saw, teetering at the top I managed to reduce it’s height without getting too horribly scratched up. Not quite a work of fine topiary but the room is now much brighter.



A few more film images from the Yashica Samurai.

Behind The factory
I love the old Victorian factories in the city, lots of them are sadly being demolished to make way for bland apartment blocks, but some are being converted to living accommodation.

New Living
This was the central post office, I used to top up the franking machine here in the late 1970’s.

    you did great job trimming that holy tree 🙂
    wonderful captures too, the last one is the Victorian factory in the front, right? quite a contrast…
    what does it mean you topped up the franking machine in English? 🙂

      Thank you. Images 5 & 7 are victorian. As part of my job in the 1970’s I had to work a mailing machine that automatically put letters and leaflets etc into envelopes, sealed them and put a postage paid mark on them with the franking machine, it had to have enough credit for the mailing run. 🙂
