museum ticket and colour film

5 Frames of old aircraft in Latvia with an Olympus OM-1, a Zuiko 28mm f/3.5 and Kodak Ektar 100 – By Michael Jardine

I was inspired by a recent 35mmc post to put together a set of 5 photos of the Riga Air Museum in Latvia, which I visited this summer at breakneck speed (and only just caught my flight back to Copenhagen) against the protestations of the museum guy that he hadn’t shown me the best bits yet… anyway I grabbed my partner’s OM-1 with a 28mm lens on it to get as much stuff in the frame as possible, stuck a roll of Ektar 100 in it – I’m not especially familiar with camera, lens or film – and took some pictures.
