Cervinia and an old Land Rover, 2002

By annettep38  
Many thanks to Isabel and Prabhas for their lovely awards and for all your kind comments nd clicks

Maurizio Ortodossi brought this very rare original Diesel Series from a Welsh farm to Italy .

I took this picture in 2002 for Land Rover Enthusiast, with a broken hand but intact Pentax 6x7 camera. Somebody else had to drive my 109 to Switzerland where a friendly vet repaired my hand and I fixed a few things on my LR. Then I went back to Belgium with a knob on the steering wheel for easy handling.
It was Fuji Velvia, most likely the 55mm Takumar and there was plenty of light so I would have shot comfortably at 1/250s.

IF THAT NEW SITE throws me out once again today I give up. 14 times it has been

A dream to me , both the LR & Asahi 6x7,One of my friend has one with 3 lenses, but lying idle for want of film & back up facilities.

You may try these type images with Fuji film digital cameras & Velvia option. It will be a great fun
