Last year in Paris...

That trip was really the last time I used film-Ilford HP5 in a battered old Olypus Tri
p 35. A fantastic camera that can be picked up for nothing. Literally. I wouldn't rule out using it again for old time sake but unfortunately I can no longer process my own films. My photo (left) is of a Mercedes 190SL dating from between 1955-1963.

Bringing things up to date on the right is the retro-styled Mercedes Speedster GW Coupe which is clearly influenced by the Mercedes 300SL Gull-Wing and
£47,000 to you sir!

Two style icons separated by half a century...
