Flowers on the river bank

Yesterday’s weather here in Kilkenny was just wonderful and all the flowers along the river Nore are coming to life, It was just brilliant to be able to capture the two images below.

Reclaiming found things

Well, well – Hello! I didn’t even know you were still around….

Going through some old box’s of things from the old loft last week I found this camera and it must be one of the first SLR Camera’s I ever owned. Back in 1985, I moved from Altrincham near Manchester to live and work for Chase Manhattan bank as an IBM programmer.

Rayners Lane I Purchased this Pentax Super A from the shop across the road from the flat I rented. You can just about make out the shop in this photograph (Image photography) which by the way is the first frame from the first roll of film I ever used in this Camera.

I don’t remember at which point I didn’t use this Pentax any more, I think it is when I started getting into Nikon Cameras with an FM2n body which I thought was my first SLR film camera.

I just love finding old things and believe me I will use this camera again now its re-found. I am attempting to get some processing chemicals to do a post on black and white negative processing, the shop I was hoping to get it from however let me down so I am having to get it imported from Birmingham in the UK.

Here are some Sample images that I took first time around with this Pentax Super A.
