    I took out an old Ricoh 35ZF that my Dad had and put a battery and a roll of Ilford Delta 400 in it. These are a few of the frames that I snapped Tuesday morning testing it out. These are 1/250'th @ f/16 which is at least one stop overexposed and then developed in D-D23 for 5+4 minutes. No attempt was made to be artistic (as if I could be anyway :smile:), these are just point and shoots.

    It's not a bad little camera - very simple to use - lightweight and compact.

    cheers eh?

    Very nice indeed! I loved the bridge shot too, as well as the door handle.

    TFS John, very nice set indeed. I second the bridge and door handle shots. I noticed in a couple of pictures, that the presence of modern automobiles was the only hint that I had that these were recent images. I could picture them as being taken in the 60s.

    Nice work John, thanks for sharing and thanks for taking the Ricoh out and giving it another chance to do what it does best.

    Subway

    I like your shots very much, but the omnipresense of Subway is very annoying, it's hard to even shoot a row of old buildings in Berlin without having one in the field of vision! Where do all these shops come from?
