For World Ballet Day today I thought I would share these photos that I took fifty years ago during rehearsal at the Royal Opera House, Covenant Garden. Happily the negatives are as pristine today as they were all those years ago when I took the film from my trusty Pentax Spotmatic SLR and headed for the dark room.
I posted the first photo in 2015 under the title Peeping Beauty.
After many years of faithful service my Pentax Kr, my fourth Pentax since 1970, finally gave up the ghost. You will have seen many of its creations on the changing palette since I first started blogging in 2013.
I’m happy to report that a used Pentax K5 in perfect condition joined the family on the weekend and already feels very much at home. Clearly the beginning of another beautiful friendship as you can see from this morning’s walk.
Time to say “thank you” to my old friend and “welcome to the family” to my new one.
