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

25-09-17

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.

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.

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

The Yashica impressed me with these shots, considering the film expired in 2001.

Thought it was about time the Yashica had another outing, bought this lovely camera around 10 years ago, and only ever put 1 roll of film through it. So when I met up with my photowalk buddies a couple of weeks ago I took it along loaded with some Kodacolor 200 that had expired in 2001. The Yashica is an auto only camera but has a 35 – 105mm zoom lens and through the lens viewfinder.

Really enjoyed using the Yashica, and considering how old the film was the results were pretty good. Think it deserves a fresh roll of film for it’s next outing.
