Old is new again

Back in the 80s, Dad let me use his Nikon F with the photomic finder. Here is a slide from that era:

(Remember, these sat around for ~30 years before processing. This is a crop and was taken near the wreck of the Cherry Venture, at a guess Dad shot this with his F3)

Much later I’d use the same camera with a 55mm macro to make many of the pictures in my PhD thesis. I wonder where those negatives are?

Now, with new light seals, and the meter back in working condition, I’m having a blast shooting the back yard.


Has it really been that long?
