Kitchen gable


Kitchen gable, originally uploaded by ccgd.

A late afternoon view from our Garden. Looking at the kitchen gable chimney through a legacy lens, using an old Zuiko 40mm lens from an old OM-1 - yes I finally bought the adaptor - 6 quid of e-bay. I've also bought a couple of other old lenses to "play" - they should arrive in the next few days.

Lots of fun playing with a camera that can only be in manual mode, and I'm amazed at how sharp this 25 year old bit of glass is.

Funny to think that people have been looking at this view - almost unchanged - for over 300 years. The roofing material may have been different in 1700, but the chimney shape is just the same.

You take some great photographs and seem to live a great place. I found your blog when I Googled for somewhere to live that might have abandoned houses. The corrupt took absolutely everything from me in Indonesia where I was working and living at the time and now I seeking a fresh start a little late in life.
