Speaking of old cameras. I went to pick up some picture frames in Shrewsbury market to find a small camera and film processing shop had opened next to it. The owner was a very friendly chap called Will and let my fondle some of his wares. This includes a Pentax 110 and a Leica R8. The lenses on the Pentax were like toys, tiny, and he had the complete kit of extras. The Leica was an ugly brute but the viewfinder was the brightest and clearest I've used. He had all the usual stuff in his cabinets including a lot of canon and Pentax SLRs. He also had a Pentax 645 but I didn't get to play with that.

Clearly collecting cameras is a notifiable desease.

Thats pretty cool, most have been closing. Wish I had something like that near me, Yoko has West Yorkshire cameras but I don't have anything. I think the Auto 110s are great, I actually have three but only because I thought the first one was broken and the third was a tenner with three lenses. I'll get the mv in the post later, got an mot on the SV this afternoon and its snowing! 12c yesterday and now this!

Pretty similar weather here. MOT this time of year is not a good thing. I hate having mine in February. Think I'll keep the heaters on and stay inside today.

All good for another year, should have checked the tyre pressures before riding though. Only 175 miles since last test.
