Roll 27 -Jurassic Coast.

A short drive to the South Wales coast and it’s not long before the days stress melts away. Packing light I had a Yashica 635 and an Olympus point and shoot. The roll I shot on the Yashica is in the fridge and will appear later. This roll of Agfa Vista is from the £2.50 boot…

Roll 26 – Keep an eye on the date…

Popped a roll of what I thought was in date Fuji Superia 400 into a Canon 1n. When I looked at the negs I knew something wasn’t quite right. Then I remembered that the roll had been out of its box so I had no idea how old it was. Judging by the underexposed grainy…

Rolls 23,24,25 – Shiny cars.

My home town of Pontypridd holds an annual vintage transport day in the town park. This year was a novelty as the sun made an appearance. After a parade through the high street, the cars trucks and bikes make their way into the park and squeeze into rows of polished paint and chrome. In an…

Roll 22 -Attack of the Rem-jet

So I had a phone call from AG Photographic(UK) explaining that someone had sent them a roll of C-41 that contained re-spooled motion picture stock. Before they noticed it, my film had gone into the bath. They were very apologetic and to be honest, what could they have done? It wasn’t their fault if some…

Roll 19 -I maybe down, but don’t count me out…

Hi folks, long time no post. Personal pressures have prevented me from posting anything for a while and thus I find myself about 10 weeks behind. Time to put that right. Recently attended an annual classic car show in the grounds of the Welsh museum at St Fagans.  The show is organised by the Glamorgan Classic Car…

Roll 18 – The Jokers.

One weekend a month means a visit to my local music venue ‘The District’ in Pontypridd. I’ve been shooting there for well over a year now, but for some reason only on digital. Time to have a go shooting film. I love the look of black and white concert photography but I had no Ilford in the fridge.…

Roll 15 – Barcelona Part two.

On my recent family trip to Barcelona I became so engrossed in the city that I didn’t shoot a fraction of what I intended. On arrival I just knew one week was not going to be enough to take in the history and culture. Although my wife and son were very patient with me I’m…

Roll 14 – No one said it would be easy….

Apathy has featured greatly in my life recently. Add procrastination, anxiety and a little self pity; you get the picture. The primary reason of challenging myself to 52 Rolls was to get me out of my own head. This is still a work in progress… Recent trip to Barcelona saw me pack a Canon F-1,…
