at West Terrace Cemetery

Yesterdays poodlewalk was in the grounds of the West Terrace Cemetery.

I was on my way back to the city after picking up the repacked batteries for the Rolleiflex 6006 in Thebarton. It’s a bulky 1990s system, but a good one that I used regularly. However, without the batteries the electronic cameras become expensive doorstops. This system had been out of action for six months because I could not find anyone to repack the batteries properly.

The battery pack is an old fashioned one, and over time it holds less and less charge. The previous attempt to repack them in Adelaide was a failure, as the person doing it didn’t know what they were doing. The batteries, though new, could not recharge, and I was faced with sending things back to Rollei, if I couldn’t find anyone else in Adelaide to repack them.

Rain was threatening and the cemetery was on the way home. We walked around the Catholic section. The damage was fairly extensive, much more so than I remember.
