Nikon FM results

A short while ago I blogged (or, rather, bragged) about the second-hand Nikon FM I picked up. I got the film back from the lab recently and I thought I would show you the best results. Happily the little fellow's light meter seems to be accurate, his workings sound and he turns out decent shots.

It has become rather a tradition of mine to test new cameras on a trip to London's British Museum. This is one of the world's greatest collections of artistic and ethnographic artifacts. We English spent many centuries *cough* collecting these items the rest of the world until cultural looting was deemed a bit rude. Most contentious are the famous Elgin Marbles - the statues which topped the Parthenon in Athens. They are utterly beautiful, culturally invaluable and the subject of constant diplomatic spats between Whitehall and Athens (though the latter's attention is on more important matters at present).

With repatriation becoming more frequent, it remains to be seen how long such collections will continue to be acceptable.
