Landmarks and Memories

Here I am with an MPP 5x4 plate camera. This was a highly sophisticated job, rangefinder, rising and swinging lens plate. By this time, I was fed up with plates and itching to get my hands on the latest Rolleiflex 6x6 twin lens reflex. These were horribly expensive, though and I had to content myself with a Minolta Autcord. It was all a bit avant gard for the older photographers on the Kent and Sussex Courier and they told me so.

I'd love to be able to show them my Pentax K5 and lenses. But I bet they'd hate it.
