    Hi Cliff,
    Lovely images. I’m 73 and my first serious camera was also a Pentax, S1 with clip on light meter and 50mm lens. Those Takumar lenses were superb.
    Keep on shooting!
    Best wishes,

      Afternoon Dudley, thanks for the kind words..! I love the Olympus kit, have never looked back since acquiring my first OM1 Mark II..! Now working toward a working understanding of lighting using standard backdrops for portraits… Wish me luck, and keep shooting..!

    Hi Cliff, I am 83 and also switched to m43 Olympus em10 ll and use zoom lenses, I also started my interest in photography in the RAF while stationed in Singapore in 1960’s First camera was a Yashica Pentamatic SLR with a 50mm and 100mm lens, it weighed a ton. for many years I used heavy but excellent Nikon cameras and was a member of the local camera club winning several cups and competitions usually in colour prints I processed at home in my old darkroom, I also joined and got an LRPS from the RPS. Sadly although my interest has stayed firm in photography my health means that I am limited in what I can do now. Your B&W images are superb.

      Congratulations Andy for your LRPS… I’m almost there, but am struggling with the difference between ‘club’ prints, ‘RPS’ prints, and ‘Emotional, Story’ prints… I’m more interested in telling a story with my images, and the RPS doesn’t recognize that at the L level… Keep up your good work, and share sometime if and when you’re able… Thanks for your kind words..!

    Hi Cliff! Nice pics all, but I think you excel in b&w photo, especially street/situational ohotography!

      Thanks for the kind words Bogdan, I believe people often hide behind colour, whereas with only black & white (or monochrome) the image has to ‘say something’ to the viewer… Thanks again..!
