2017, Roll 48: The Tramway Village

A family visit to the tramway village in Crich, Derbyshire with my Uncle-in-Law’s old Smena Symbol and a roll of Poundland Agfa. I still have no idea how to scan colour, and so these look nothing like my usual results from the same film. And in case you missed my previous post about photographing my…

Week 46 – Tweaking my Olympus 35RC

I have had my Olympus 35RC for quite a while but have been struggling to nail any focus when shooting wide open probably due to the very dim viewfinder patch. It was quite dim when I got the camera but my last couple of rolls have had a load of out of focus frames on…

Week 45, Roll 3 – Poundland

People could be forgiven for thinking that ‘Poundland Film‘ is a myth*. Agfa VistaPlus 200 rarely seems to make it onto the shelves of the two branches near us, and when it does, it seems to sell fast. Each time I’m anywhere near, I’ll nip in, just in case.

Birthday with Cinestill 800

This is the first time I have used Cinestill 800. The film has been in my camera since May and I just finished the roll a few days ago. Most of these pictures are from May when I went to my mothers birthday party with some other family members. I am not sure what to…

Pinhole with Canon EOS3

  I know, it is absurd to take pinhole photographs with a camera as sophisticated as a Canon EOS3. I tried it anyway. But only after I did the same with a full frame DSLR. Which might be an ad nauseum of the absurd. And if you think that is bad, the icing on the cake is that…

Parental Workout

    Children, and grandchildren, can be quite the workout for a parent, or grandparent. In this instance I headed out with my granddaughter and her dad for a bit of play in her favourite park. She now lives out of town and really enjoys nostalgic visits to the places she remembers from before the…

Rose Harbour Endings

The last day of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we ended up in the anchorage at Rose Harbour, on the north shore of Kunghit Island. This is located on the south side of Houston Stewart Channel which divides Moresby and Kunghit Islands. Rose Harbour (map link) was a whaling station during the last century and a large piece of…

Around Kunghit Island

  Near the end of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we circumnavigated Kunghit Island (map link) which is a large island at the very south end of Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from Heater Harbour on the north-east side (map link) views of Hecate Strait to the east of Kunghit Island and an excursion on…

Around Juan Perez Sound

As you are seeing in recent posts, I made several visits to the Juan Perez Sound area this past summer while cruising aboard the Passing Cloud in Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from De La Beche Inlet (map link) at the western edge of Juan Perez Sound, another visit to Hotspring Island (map link) which is…

South into Gwaii Haanas

    My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud included several passes through the Juan Perez Sound area that lies at the center of the east coast of Gwaii Haanas. Over the past two decades I have spent many months in this area, walking the shores recording and testing archaeological sites. It is always a pleasure…
