Barren Grounds wildflowers with Poppy’s Olympus OM-2

52 rolls

This morning I visited Barren Grounds Nature Reserve to finish off a roll of Ultrafine Xtreme 100, that I had started yesterday, in my recently gifted Olympus OM-2.

It is a most wonderful present from my father-in-law who is in his 90’s. The Olympus OM-2 had been his treasured SLR that he had bought in the 1970’s.He wanted me to have it as he knew I was upset at having my Toyo and Nikkor lenses stolen, and importantly, am also an Olympus user.

I visited a nearby battery shop, bought some SR44s, and the OM-2 came to life.

Seems to me that it is working like a dream. This series was taken using a G Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 lens with a 20mm extension tube, and stand developed over lunch in RO9 (1.100).

No tripod was used in the taking of these pictures.
