Olympus [mju:] Zoom, Olympus 35-70mm at 35mm – Rollei RPX 400
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 10 mins at 20°c.

I’m not going to go into why these steps down to North Beach at Bridlington are known (to some of us at least) as ‘strop’ steps… 😁

What I will say is how pleased I am that the £5.00 Olympus [mju] zoom I picked up from a charity shop last year works perfectly! Bargain!

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Bargain books!

As an old friend of my wife’s used to say ‘money is never wasted on books or pork products’

I picked these three up on Sunday from a shop at one of the local tourist traps… None were priced and I was pleasantly surprised to be told £15 for the lot!

I’ve a horrible feeling that ‘The Hasselblad Way’ will only aggravate an itch I’ve had for a while to own such a thing…
