1953 - Bentley Church

An image taken with this half plate camera, my first non-elementary one. It taught me a lot, especially as plates were so expensive. When I was given it the bellows had been eaten by insects so I went round junk shops till I found a similar camera which, though damaged and lacking bits and pieces had a decent set of bellows which I could cannibalize. I kept the other camera and have been restoring it too. So perhaps soon it will get a gallery of it's own.

Bentley is a village just off the main road between Alton and Farnham.

Half plate landscape,B&W glass plate
