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. I packed five rolls of Agfa Vista 400 to…… Continue reading A Nikon F-301 travelling Ireland
