Gettysburg battlefield, Pennsylvania, USA on a cold and snowy January sometime in the 1980s. It was originally a colour slide, but as there was very little colour that day, either in the weather or the atmosphere, I converted it to B&W.

Olumpus OM-2, 55mm 1.2

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.

    Wonderful poignant image David – has to be black & white !

  • Than you, Roy! It actually began life as a colour slide, but I converted it to B&W, which was far more appropriate.
