Happy Days

Broadstairs beach, Kent

 

Pentax K1000 + Pentax SMC 50mm 1.4 + Kodak Ektar 100

 

Just looked up the serial number of my K1000 and it was from the very first batch, made in Japan in 76-78 (subsequent production moved to HK then finally China, ending in 1990). I must have had it since around 1996. The shutter is beginning to play up, might need a service soon, but just happy that it can still produce such pleasing images (the new Kodak Ektar really helps - it scans so nicely it almost looks, dare I say it, like a DSLR image)
