Polish sail training ship Dar Pomorza

This is the Dar Pomorza, built in Germany in 1909 docking in Plymouth some time in the late 1970's. She was decommissioned in 1982 and has been a floating museum in Gydnia since then.





These would have been taken with a Mamiya 330f. Paul will see that the tugs are Bristol registered, Cory Towage having taken over the Plymouth civilian tug services from WJ Reynolds in the mid 1970's. Reynolds were the last fleet of coal fired tugs in the UK, so Cory's transferred tugs from elsewhere to replace them.

Since getting my Adox Golf, the allure of MF is stronger and stronger. The ram's head is why

Yep. The stump and the salt-glazed flagon are also splendid examples.
Unfortunately finances preclude my adding to the adox for a while yet. So I'll just keep repairing the bellows and enjoy its curious swirly b***h for the time being

you should be able to figure it out...
Missed this thread back in April. Great idea, and some great stuff posted so far... Here are a few of mine that are digitized. I have some I'd like to have but are either lost or framed and I didn't want to take 'em out of the frames to have scanned. And I lost my negatives a long time ago. Still had slides though and had those scanned a little over a year ago. I'm just gonna put 'em all up now, because I don't have many and no point in dribbling them out..

1981 - Oxford - my Dad (no longer with us) and my niece, who just had her first child in June. One of my favorite photos, and happens to be of two people I love...

1971 - I was 12 and took this out of a car window on a family vacation. I grew up in Arizona, but not THIS part of Arizona. Something about this funky old shot I've always liked, despite its very obvious limits

Excellent shots, Ray. That first one of your father and niece is a stunner. The Venice and Rome shots very much remind me of your current work. The Arizona shot with the two cars is just fantastic.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Antonio - that Arizona shot always seems like Northern Arizona's poor man's response to the "Cadillac Ranch" in Texas, which was an intentional art installation. I don't believe this was deliberate.
