Nosher's 18th Birthday, Barton on Sea, Hampshire - 26th May 1985

It's the final year of college, and Nosher gets a Pentax K1000 for his birthday, making these the first-ever photos (apart from a few experimental photos from a borrowed college camera) in a continuing sequence spanning at least 116,000 photos (as at early 2012). The day started somewhat gloomily, with early thunderstorms, but brightened up just in time for the arrival of the gang to Ford Cottage, Meadow Way in Barton on Sea.
