Not holding a camera but taken by a workmate using my brand new Agfa 9S Silette, my first 35mm camera.

Checking a 3Kw 600vdc Motor Genny on test. The glare on the LHS is from a bank high wattage light bulbs forming the electrical load for the machine.

Notice the mop of hair - Oh well, hair today, gone tomorrow! Wink

Taken c1960 I still keep in touch with this workmate.

No beard on this one either! Jas getting on top of things Wink Yashica FR1 + Yashica ML 28mm/f2.8 lens, Vivitar 283 flashgun + handgrip + remote sensor,

Late 70s/early 80s, when I was young and fit Smile

One from the 'Rogues Gallery' Wink Fujica AZ1 + Fujinon 43-75mm/f3.5-4.5 zoom screw thread mount.

Traded in for the Yashica FR1 + ML 50mm/f1.7 lens when Fuji abandoned the screw thread for the X-mount, which didn't impress me at all.

1979/80

Jas it seems like you and I were the only people with a camera years ago Wink
Those old Fujica's were really robust weren't they - I really like the ST-605 screw thread model...never understood why people bough Zenits and Prakticas when that was around.

Pete, if you very closely at my shot of us all dolled up for the Wedding you probably still won't be able to see the Olympus Pen half-frame camera that I'm holding.

I brought back from Japan. A dreadful thing, it lost a load of images I took when I was working out there after the back got jammed, then popped open and the film fell out! (I wasn't really drunk - honest Wink )

It was all I had to take pictures with in those days though

I sometimes think that I had too many cameras, Pete. Especially as I've still got most of them.


Quote: I really like the ST-605 screw thread model

I also had a ST605, to go with the AZ1. I part exchanged my Zenit Em to buy the ST605.Wink

Getting more up to date - a mirror image shot:

In reality I fitted a Wein SafeSync between the hot shoe and the flash gun sensor.

Brian, I noticed that you were holding a camera half hidden in your hands, but could not make out what was.

I had the Zenit EM back pop open whilst it was over my shoulder, during a walk along the Worthing front. Lost most of the pics. Most annoying to say the least.

Ok, let's try to get in on the 'Photos from Jas's attic' thread Wink

This is from early 2009, me with my 30D & 100-400 L taken with my old 10D. I've just had some business cards printed from Moo, using this shot with a lowered opacity and text over the top as the front side and various examples of my other rubbish on the back.

I'll try to dig an old one out since that what the thread was asking for Smile

I've a print somewhere of me aged 16 with my first camera - one of those little 110 things..... I'll see if I can find it over the weekend - and then not show anyone Smile

I'm trying to remember where it is - there's only about three places to look - I think.....
