Sligo Town Walk 1

This Sligo Town walk starts off in Market Yard and heads down Old Market Street and down the lane past Shoot The Crows pub to the Garavogue River. It crosses the footbridge to the Public Library and then we can re-trace our steps via the footbridge (where we can get shots we missed first time across) and up the lane and turn right towards John St at Shoot The Crows pub. We walk along John Street up to the Cathedral stairs. From here we can cut through The Peace Park and back out onto the Market Yard.

These images all come from a 36 exposure roll of 35mm Fomopan 100 Black and White Film and shot on a Praktica Camera with a Rikonen 55mm 2.8 lens. The film was shot on a warm June afternoon with plenty of sunshine.

Vintage Camera Buying Tips

A good seller will know how to word an advert with all the buying information you need. They will also welcome and answer any questions you have.

You also want pictures showing the outside of the camera taken from all angles and a clear shot of the inside of the camera with the film back open. Clear pictures and snappy text do the selling. Or not.

Vintage Lens Buying Tips

There are tons of cheap vintage camera lenses changing hands every day and this is because they can be easily fitted to any modern dslr camera as well as the vintage film camera bodies they were originally used on. There is some legendary glass to be found at good prices and ebay is the place for hunting down classic lenses and camera bodies and knowing how much to pay.
