Up on the roof

By Ericsamson
With apologies to the late Kenny Lynch.

As it's Film Friday I thought I'd bung in a test shot from a recently acquired Olympus OM1. The subject seemed novel and I was a 10 minute walk away from 'a well known Sheffield camera shop' who developed the film. (It's had a little tweak in Affinity.)

The film is Kodak Ultramax 400; the lens is a 50mm prime, the photographer (Wink??? Blush) is a heavily medicated Ovaltine junkie.

Many thanks to all who viewed, voted for, commented on and awarded my dear old chum Cyril Joystick who was winging it ... again! Some PMs have been sent but a bit of catching up is pending. I'll get there ... just as soon as I get down from the roof.

Best wishes to all for the weekend!

Yours, subject to vertigo, A Hitchcock. SmileSmileSmile

I wasn't aware that KL was late...can't recall seeing that in any media...ah well, another in a long line of well-known people I grew up with has become late...this is beginning to make me think I may well have passed lower was bound to happen sometime, I guess...

This presumably is the new winner podium for the forthcoming TdF - aka the Tour de France. Instead of standing there while a gorgeous dolly puts the yellow jumper on the day's leader, while pouting appropriately, he will be asked to mount this copy of his velocipede in order to receive the acclaim of the cheering masses below.
