Olympus OM2n – Vivitar 19mm f3.8 – Konica ir750 film.
This is an old one from the archive, mid 1990’s I think. Taken on a walk in Lathkil Dale Derbyshire. I was quite surprised to see these steps abandoned in the woods, they were nicely covered in moss. It was quite dark and I thought the image would be underexposed, the lens was wide open (not good for the Vivitar) but the lovely Konica infrared film didn’t let me down.
Can’t believe it was May 2015 whenmy car was totalledthis is the longest I’ve been without a car since I passed my driving test in 1973. Spent the last few days trawling the internet car sale sites, I don’t want to spend lots of money as the car will have to stand on the road, but it needs to be good enough to take me over to France next year to see my friends.
The main reasons for wanting another car is to get the cats easily to the vets for their annual vaccinations, and Fleur needs her teeth cleaning. Also I want to get out and about more with my cameras to different locations, having being spurred on by some old negatives I found from the Rolleiflex the other week.

Ilford Pan F This is a really old one from the 1980’s. Fortunately most of the Steam Engines were rescued and can be seen running on the many preserved railways around the UK.
Well back to searching the internet for a car. Have a great weekend.
