I asked for a 35mm camera for my 15th birthday in 1960 and my parents bought me a secondhand Diax. I used this superb camera for 26 years and took about 100 b&w photos, 900 colour slides and 600 colour prints.

1961: I bought my first colour slide film for a trip to Spain where I took these photos of Toledo and Blanes. 

I took the photos below of Tarn Hows and Furness Abbey with the first film in my new camera.

Many pictures of my wife, Jill, and children, Sephen, Michael, Christopher and Katie were taken with this camera. Here are just four of my favourites.
