It’s been a desperate few days for pictures.I have shot half a roll of medium format and spent ages toad hunting. The toads were really quick and not a bit cooperative. Usually if I pick them up and pop them in a bit of shade they will pose but not these they kept scampering away back down their burrows.
This is the best shot I got. There were three of them and this was the medium sized one.
The only other thing I have found is this Brown-lipped Snail.
I did come across a camera I have been looking out for for a while.
A Minolta SRT 102. This says SRT Super on it but is the same camera and dates from 1974 give or take a year. It appears to be in perfect working order and came with three lenses. A 50mm 1.4, a 28mm 2.8 and a zoom 85-210mm. The later sounds as if it has been dropped but I have mended the aperture control and it now just needs a clean. I can’t find my lens wrench so I have either lost it of lent it to someone. They aren’t expensive and I’ll get another one if it doesn’t turn up. The camera is full manual but the TTL meter needs a new battery. I’ll try and get it sorted this week and bang a roll of film through it. This is the last camera I will get unless an Olympus OM 1 turns up with a good macro lens.
That’s me up to date.
