London zoo – 35mm slides from 1980

Whilst sorting through some of my Dad’s old 35mm slides a couple of days ago I found a whole series of slides which I took in 1980 after I’d just moved to Harpenden to start work. I remember taking a trip to London Zoo one Saturday with either my Petri MF-1 or possibly an Olympus OM-20, and taking these pictures. Although these are in no way very interesting pictures, I wanted to record them in a permanent way, hence this post.

You can view the pictures by clicking on the gallery below, or by following this link and seeing them in full size.

Part 2


I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
