A compilation from three rolls, from three very different cameras, but of similar subjects around where I work and live
Firstly, from my newest purchase, this lovely little Agfa camera from the 1980’s. It cost about the same as a couple of rolls of HP5+. It has scale focussing and only fully automatic controls so it’s just a point and shoot but it has a gorgeous large and bright viewfinder. I also have the 1535 model, which has rangefinder focussing – I wanted one, not both but put in low bids on each and ended up winning both.
Here’s some night shots of London along the Thames. You may recognise some landmarks. All I did was to place the camera and press the shutter – I think these are pretty good exposures that it handled automatically.

The next shots are from my Holga, of the same location but on a foggy morning this week. Delta 100 developed in Rodinal 1+50.
Finally some shots from a walk yesterday along the riverside path with my Leica MP with the 135mm Tele-Elmar lens fitted. I was trying out a roll of Adox Silvermax – I’ve photographed this section of the river so many times that using this long lens gave me a much needed perspective. Developed in Prescysol EF, I’m pretty impressed with this film on the basis of this single roll.
I finished up the film by taking photographs of my other cat, Ursula, who is very photogenic.
