The Start of a Beautiful Friendship

By johnriley1uk  
The friendship is my friendship with photography, and it starts properly right here with this image. I had just bought my first SLR camera, a Zenit B, and coupled it here with a Super Takumar 55mm f/1.8 lens borrowed from my father. The location was the banks of the Manchester, Bolton and Bury canal near Clifton and this was the first Kodachrome slide in the new camera that I felt I really liked.

Zenith EM for me.....and I've just thrown all my old slides out as absolute rubbish....not even historical value!

Two horned creatures locking horns? Good old Kodachrome, still producing images from the past!
