Minolta XD-7

5 Frames With a Minolta XD7 and Vivitar 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5 – Riding Route 101 – By Peter Roberts

One of my childhood memories is of family days out discovering different parts of London by bus in the late fifties and early sixties. Sometimes my father had a particular destination in mind, other times we would just see where the buses would take us. Those were the days when an Oyster was something slippery downed by the dozen by people with more disposable income than we had and a Freedom Pass might have been a song by Pete Seeger. What there was, however, was a Red Rover Ticket which gave unlimited travel for a day on London’s red buses.

I‘m a hobby photographer from Munich, Bavaria (Germany), trying to find some time for (mostly) nature and landscape photography besides family and job.I‘ve always used Minolta gear from the moment my parents unboxed a Minolta X700 on a travel to Sicily in 1983, when I was eight. I just had to restart shooting film when my parents gave me this old X700 in fall 2017, already owning a small collection of manual Minolta lenses to use on Sony mirrorless cameras. “Needing“ a second film camera in a moment of GAS last summer I got by chance a very beautiful Minolta XD-7 from a collector, which lead me to do some more film photography.
