Went with another Fellow Camera Club member to 'Barnard's Farm' near West Horndon here in Essex, England where there are lots of weird Statues and Water Features and a small Railway ( at extra cost) . I used my recently serviced 1969 Rolleiflex 3.5 F Planar loaded with one of the last ORWO NP22 films i my Fridge, dated 1993 and processed in my 'Home-Made FX-4 Formula 1+1' for 7.45 mins @ 20°C -- Negs scanned well on Canon 9000F Mk II and I used all shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/500th and apertures to full aperture from f18. Results were good -- not 'Camera Club winners but shows shutter and meter worked well and lens is good.

i'll add ONE MORE photo to show the Planar at full aperture. The Sculpture in the water i took first on my 1956 E Xenotar on Fuji Velvia then as I moved around it became much more suitable for Monochrome and light was just right to allow f3.5 - All these photos are full frame, 'Un-Cropped' to see what Comments I get then i c an do darkroom enlargements later.
