    Always glad to see new contributions here... so thank-you @miktec !

    That 6x6 shot of Porto in 1984 is wonderful.

    I really can't understand why anyone would bother with this old stuff. You can do so much more with digital, and its a stack cheaper, no waiting for days for your results, and none of those stinking, environmentally unfriendly chemicals.

    Here's mine

    I took the photo on the wall with it about 25 years ago. As you can see, well used and thoroughly battered, but in perfect working order, and still in employment.

    And here's another one which I bought last year. Still boxed and mint, it had never had a film through it. I bought it at auction together with an F4s doorstop for £185.

    When I bought my first one I couldn't immediately afford a lens for it, so I just used to hold it a play with the dials. Cost me a fair amount of money.

    I also bought an OM2 for my daughter just before Christmas, also boxed and mint, the box like new with all the documentation, user manuals and even the guarantee in its plastic pouch. £130 for the body and another £30 for a good 50mm f1.8. I forgot to photograph it before she took it back to Amsterdam.

    Well, after five weeks, Photobucket is back up and running, I think.

    I took this photo over the Christmas holiday at Bawdsey beach. Such a pretty place, and at sunrise I’m usually on my own.

    Two weeks ago I visited the old nuclear weapon storage site at the former RAF Barnham near Thetford. This place was used to store Blue Danube, including the fissile material, before they were distributed to the region’s V bombers. Decommissioned in 1963, sold to the current owner in 1966. A very interesting place for photography.

    Bawdsey cliff, Suffolk. Sunrise here really does make the cliff at this Site of Special Scientific Interest glow. As with the beach, the cliff is full of fossils.

    Thank you. Really getting into landscapes at the moment, and I’ve just bought myself first L-bracket’ so I’ll see how that goes.

    These are superb. Did you find any drowned Nazi stormtroopers?

    I don't know how the Barnham site had slipped under my radar, but then I guess I'm more WW2 oriented in my interests. Looks fascinating.

    If you’re ever passing nearby on a week day, you can just drive through the site, as it’s now called the Gorse Industrial Estate. As long as you don’t take the micky, I doubt anyone will complain. I went on an organised photo shoot, set up by https://www.throughthelensworkshops/

    I guess Gorse, for all its sharpness, is a gentler name than say, the Plutonium U235 Industrial Estate, or the Smallboy Industrial Estate. Actually, Blue Danube itself is poetic, in a dark way.

    A couple more from yesterday. Check out the beautiful ornamental slating in the second...and the grilles at the top, which are drilled/bored slate...unfortunately the building is deteriorating rapidly.
