Fresh off the boat (sorta kinda maybe)

Hello to all -

My name is (John) and I have been an Olympus (abuser) since (1972) when I came across my first (OM-1) in a seedy pawnshop in (Medford, Oregon, USA).


I'll let some pics do the rest of the talking . . .

Yes welcome from me too John. Nice set of images. I'm not usually a B&W fan but that window and church are really good.

Welcome. In 1972 it would have been an M1, now a sought after collectors model.

Hi John,

Welcome, Great images, love the buzzard and the koi in particular. Just bought an OM1 n and on my second roll of film, it's heavier than I thought and glad I have the grip winder, the first roll was a little hit and miss, trying to get to grips with the no 13 opaque viewer, as to which part means correct focus.

Re: Fresh off the boat (sorta kinda maybe)

Ohh, you live on the Ring of Kerry; I'm jealous! If I could live any place I chose it would be somewhere on the west coast of Ireland. You must have lots and lots of pictures to show us!

Mind you, I'm impressed that you included some pics in your first post - it's a bit like taking a packet of biscuits when you go to meet the new neighbours. I particularly like that Monet-style Koi!

A big welcome John, from John.
