Love seeing your ancient photos. Where are the 59 year later versions?

Ho! Ho! For 20 years my office and laboratory was less than half a mile away and I had to pass it daily, well almost. I paid many visits in passing, entry was free then and they used to put on organ recitals around about lunchtimes. I should have some colour shots somewhere, I’ll look ‘em up, but most of them are family and friends shots. And as you know, no auto exposure, no auto focus, no 20 shots per second and no video without a separate 8mm or 16mm video camera. But, surprisingly enough, I seem to be lugging more and heavier equipment around these days.
But the city is a bit different today, restricted for some vehicles and I just can’t be bothered to drive in with so many rules. Even if you do drive in it is almost impossible to park.
But there is a poem by W H Davies that comes to mind:-
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

That is right on the money Ray. A life without those things is no good life at all. This is why I only work 3 days a week, often less, and 'work' consists of picking up a handful of people from different parts of the world and taking them to Litchfield National Park, or Kakadu or Nitmiluk, showing them gobsmacking scenery, birds, flowers and wild animals, swimming with them in warm, pristine waterholes and discussing all aspects of life with them. Oh, and taking a few photos ... But alas, we digress from churches.

Exceptional IQ and detail in that interior shot, outstanding work in 1960.

Absolutely correct Pippan. At least I manged to retire early and do my own thing. Although I think I wasted a lot of time. Now I like to mingle with the tourists though, and sometimes stand around as the dodgy street traders try to rip them off.

Thank for the comment. Some of my earlier work seems to surprise me also. But the Leica M3 and Summicron was an excellent combination.

Excellent composition to display the essence of church architecture.
