Week 17, Clapham Common

the ‘Miles for Missing People’ event was this weekend and to support them we went down to Clapham Common and some of us ran (not me, dodgy knees, but I did in spirit). As well as the runners, I took some pictures out and about on the common, which is a fascinating place. I was…

Week 15 – take a seat

I went to the park (Jephson Gardens – Leamington Spa) and used a whole roll without getting up from the park bench I’d plonked myself down upon. There was one occasion when I really wanted to move closer as a there was a model in a funky dress being photographed but I stuck by my…

week 14, Trees

I didn’t hold out much hope for this film having been stung by Lomo 120 before, but it turned out ok, however the numbers and symbols are clearly visible on the unexposed negative, but don’t appear to have damaged the exposed part. This film was Lady Grey. They were taken with a Mamiya C220 and…

Week 13, 2.5 miles there and 2.5 back

I left my house, turned left and kept walking for 2.5 miles. With me I had a Mamiya C220 loaded with Ektar 100. My destination was a tree I’d seen the week before, it had all it’s branches sawn off and looked butchered, sad and forlorn. It also looked quite interesting. So I walked 2.5…

Week 11: Well that didn’t go to plan

Digging through a cupboard I found a bellows with lens on the end s o I thought I’d have a little play with that. I set up some lights and proceeded to take pictures of things, close up pictures. The bellows only fits two of my cameras and I chose the Zenit EM as the…

Week 10 – Olympus OM2n goes to London

I had thought my OM2n broken, except it wasn’t, which was a happy surprise as I haven’t bothered using it for almost two years due to it being damaged (I think the OM2 might be and I became a little confused) Here are a few from the weekend.

Week 9 – You Cheating Cheater!

Leica Z2X, Fuji 200, Fading Tetenal C41, Epson V600. Mostly taken in a Cambridge with some in Leamington Spa. The latter were on the start of the roll for ages, finished the film off for the most part in Cambridge. Kinda cheating, Kinda not.

Week 8: Draycote Water

Having recently been diagnosed with arthritis in one of my knees I have taken to walking. Not that I didn’t walk before, but this is walking for the sake of walking rather than to get from one place to another with a reason. Draycote Water is a reservoir with a circumference of 5 miles, which…

Week 7 – “What’s in a name?”

And so I found myself at the end of another week without having taken any pictures. Another rush job then. This time some roses set in front of a mirror so that the light I am using at the front reflects back and through the flowers, it sort of worked, although I’m not quite sure…
