Legacy Building, Legacy Lens

Seemed appropriate for my first outing with an om 50 1.8 on the E-PL1.

The Murray John building in Swindon, completed 1976, and quite a probable target for cameras from the original om range



(and yes the reflected sun has effectively helped advance the clock)

Hi Nick,

Just got an E-PL1 and now looking for the right adaptor...

How have you mounted the OM to the E-PL1 ???

Nice shot by the way

Thanks Graham

This adapter from this supplier, not the cheapest but it arrived in a couple of days on the standard delivery.

Haven't the foggiest what a 'STOPING Screw MECHANISM' is, or if the adapter actually has one. Still at my age it is probably irrelevant.

It allows the lens aperture to work manually otherwise it will stay wide open. It's just a small screw.

Re: Legacy Building, Legacy Lens

Lovely light you have captured there Nick.

Did they build half of it, change their minds and and get the architects to redesign the top half?

Re: Legacy Building, Legacy Lens

Thanks Xpres - it makes sense now.

Stephen - I like the discontinuity, it makes it look like an MFI job where you just attach 2 easily assembled parts, Sometimes expect to see a big hand reaching down to turn round (or remove) the top.

The bottom part are Offices, the top are flats (originally council, not sure of status now).

Thanks

Nick
