1988 I purchased my second Pentax K1000 body, a 55mm lens for my Pentax 6X7 and I believe I bought the metered pentaprism (although it could have been 1989) for the 6X7. I had just started working as the black and white printer at a custom photo lab. I would buy my own paper and process my film and use the darkroom to print my work on my own time. It was great for a while, but I worked there too long. I think printing in a darkroom for 40 hours a week for years killed my enthusiasm for photography. Luckily, I got bitten again by the photography bug a few years ago.
I used a lot of types of film but my favorite at the time was 120/220 Plus-X processed in Rodinal.
