Saw a tweet from James Estrin the other evening and it brought back memories of my cherished OM1n which lives in a cupboard ten feet from where I am writing this now. I’m going to have to get a roll of FP4 and hit the streets with it. The picture below was taken with that camera and Zuiko 24mm in 1989 (urgh how long ago?) and shortly after this the skinheads got a little hyper and starting to pretend to ‘nut’ the camera. The ‘session’ finished a wee bit later. I did send them the promised picture which I printed in the darkroom myself. Crikey James Estrin what have you started?
