Today’s pic is from the first roll through my my Olympus OM-2N since having it repaired last year by PPP Cameras and I’m so happy to have it back in action!

I do enjoy strolling beside canals, even when (as here) they’ve been abandoned for years… the Friends of the Cromford Canal do have long-term plans to restore this section though so perhaps one day I’ll be able to photograph boats here?

Yet another image from the recently developed roll of Kosmo Foto Mono that had been lurking in a Pentax MZ-M since 2018.

I must photograph this railway signal post every single time I visit High Peak Junction, where the Cromford & High Peak Railway (C&HPR) met the Cromford Canal until the latter was abandoned in 1944.

Monochrome Monday… another forgotten roll…

Another roll of film that’s been lurking in a camera since 2018…

I quite like the SMC Pentax-M lenses, not so keen on the MZ-M though… compared to my trusty Olympus OM cameras it feels a bit flimsy, perhaps I should try an ME Super or an MX instead?

Monochrome Monday… RAF Wigtown Control Tower, October 2019

Another image from the roll of film that’s been lurking in my Nikon F3HP since last October’s trip to Scotland!

This is the control tower at the former Royal Air Force (RAF) station at Wigtown in Scotland. The station was active between 1941 and 1945 and from 1947 to 1948, mainly in a training role, but a number of operational squadrons also visited the station, the last being the Bomber Command Trials Unit flying Avro Lancasters.
