‘Strop’ steps, Bridlington
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!

Well it looks like the Olympus XA2 I found for the princely sum of £1.99 in a charity shop last year works just fine!

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…
