London zoo – 35mm slides from 1980

Whilst sorting through some of my Dad’s old 35mm slides a couple of days ago I found a whole series of slides which I took in 1980 after I’d just moved to Harpenden to start work. I remember taking a trip to London Zoo one Saturday with either my Petri MF-1 or possibly an Olympus OM-20, and taking these pictures. Although these are in no way very interesting pictures, I wanted to record them in a permanent way, hence this post.

You can view the pictures by clicking on the gallery below, or by following this link and seeing them in full size.
