The second Nikon I owned with a trusty roll of Tri-X that I always used when shooting B/W. In 1971, much of the work with this camera went to The Evening Argus, the daily regional paper of Sussex, England. I used to shoot “space fillers” – anything of interest with a bit of a story summed up in a 50 word caption which I also wrote. The film was stuffed into a special orange ‘Press’ envelope and put on the next train to Brighton after I phoned the picture editor. I’ve still got quite a few of the old press cuttings but unfortunately none of the negatives.
