Project Decay #79 - Lucky Pentax

Photo Information
This one may be worth a mention as it's so unlikely as to be amazing. The Pentax MG has been out in the elements for 79 months now, over six and a half years. Regardless of what state it's in, and that's pretty impressive I think, it now appears to have provided an environment for the germination of a solitary four leaf clover. Josh from EPZ noticed it, I had a look and it seems to be so and Sue double checked and agreed it was indeed a four leaf clover. Should we take this as a Good Omen for Pentax?

Very impressive but I will be really impressed when you put a lens on it a film in it and it works. After a clean of the mirror obviously.

Don't be daft - he took thE BATTERY out before leaving it where the damp could damage it!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Isn't that wonderful! still waiting for a Robin to nest in it and it's weathering so well.
Kind regards Maria

My nephew has a small hedgehog and the original plan was to have a picture with her nestling around the camera. Unfortunately warm weather and hedgehog never coincided and then she became too unwell to travel. However, a visiting robin is a possibility and seeing we already have a four leaf Clover I wouldn't count it out!
Best regards, John
