Week 37 Continued: Skeg Vegas

I live about as far away from the sea as is possible on our little island. Visiting the sea remains a very special event and once there, I am endlessly fascinated by the coastline and the sea itself. If I lived there, I’d never run out of things to photograph, whether it’s the wild coastline…

Week 36 – Hobby Mash

During week 36 of my 52 rolls project, I was directed to this article (sorry to lead you to the awful Leicester Mercury website) that tells of plans to ‘develop’ Leicester’s Faircharm trading estate, home to several creative spaces and small businesses.

It’s the first colour film through the camera (during my ownership) and the first to be professionally processed,…

Camera number 17 (and roll 48) is…

Week 27: Chasing God Through Palmyra

Week 4 continued: Nikon F2

I took along my sold Lubitel to shoot a farewell roll or two but also packed my Nikon F2 (thebestlookingcameraevermade™) and a roll of Fujicolo(u)r C200. My friend Wojtek had told me about this film…
