Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England sometime in the 1970s. This shot sat in my slide files overlooked until I started copying some of the slides a couple of winters ago. Since making a digital copy the shot has grown on me.
Probably taken when I was a photography student in the late 1970s. I recognise the location as close to my parents house at the time. If I was taken when I was studying photography it would have been taken with an Olympus OM1, which I still have. If it was taken before I was at art school it could have been taken with a Zenit E, my first serious camera.
It’s Throwback Thursday and as the photo was taken in the late 1970s is was called Scrambling, not Moto X in those days.
It’s also a throwback in other ways. Note the protective gear the rider is wearing, boots, gloves, helmet, goggles and face guard. Compare that to all the body armour worn by Moto X competitors these days.
Another throwback is the camera technology. Film of course but in those days manual focus and manual exposure. A rare colour image as I shot mostly black and white for the local newspaper.
