Staying Local

Don't we often take our own immediate environment for granted? Where I live is steeped in history, as is so much of London. The building you can see has been there for 300 years, and seen a lot of changes. For a while, it was the Conservatives local HQ, and hence the bust of Churchill who was the local MP. Diamond Geezeer walked the walk and talked the talk here, too. The stone plinth was made out of a bit of the old Waterloo Bridge.

But the real reason I took this photo was as part of a test reel to try out another £5 special from eBay, after fixing it. It's an Agilux Agifold, a late forties/early fifties camera made in London (Croydon). In case anyone is interested, it has a 90cm f4.5 lens, here stopped to f/8, shot on Fuji Acros processed in ID-11.
