Vast tracks of sea

Vast tracks of sea

Looking back to land along the railway on Southend Pier

One of the big problems I have with film is that quite often I don’t get though a roll very quickly – which means photographs lay in the camera undeveloped or seen for literally years. Last year I cycled to Southend as part of the coast to coast training – around 35 miles which I did enjoy and it’s nice now having the photos to think back to that day!

For any camera nerds, the camera was a Fujica STX-1 which were made in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It’s a very simple SLR which is excellent now I know more about what the numbers mean and how to use them! Lens used was a 80-200mm f4.5-f5.5 Clubman zoom which the internets appears to know nothing about. Given the x-mount fitting was only manufactured for a short while (~1978 to 1985 from what I can find) it probably dates from that time too.
