A Nikon F‑301 travelling Ireland

Over­ture Mid 2017 we made a two week trip through Ire­land. Motiv­ated by Jim Grey from Down the Road who made sev­er­al won­der­ful posts about his jour­ney in 2016, I tried to get hands on an old ana­log Nikon F‑301 cam­era with a 35mm lens attached.

And…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Con­tax Aria and Yash­ica ML 2.8/24mm

Pentax LX with SMC Pentax‑A 2.8/28mm reused …

Last week­end I was on a short trip to Frank­furt and I wondered what cam­era to join me. Soon it was clear that my Fuji X100s was the one to go … but I wanted to have somet­ing more ana­log ;) So it finally was my Pentax LX with a SMC Pentax‑A 2.8/28mm lens who…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Pentax LX with SMC Pentax‑A 2.8/28mm reused …
