Yesterday I went to take photos with the People’s Republic of Teesside at a location in Yarm. The idea was that it was for film only cameras. I was using an Olympus OM-1 that I inherited – fully manual and sturdy metal construction. I felt like Peter Parker taking shots for the daily bugle! I even took a roll of shots on an Agiflex camera from the 50’s. Now I just need to get them all developed.
One highlight of the day was sliding down the bank and nearly falling in the river. This all happened within 3 minutes of arriving. As I was 100 miles from home I had to get to TKMax for some Sunday trading to replace my jeans! There was much mirth at the phrase ‘skid marks’ later on when the others arrived.
