Rolls 24 and 26 More of My Town

I started the “My Town” project as a way to keep myself interested for the year, but it has turned into a thing for me. I have already documented numerous homes that are no longer there, at first by accident and then, more recently, I’ve been searching for likely candidates. Anyway to speed up the…

Pink rocks and blue pools

“The fool who is aware of his foolishness is therefore like a wise man. But a fool who thinks he is wise is called a fool indeed. A fool who, as long as he lives, attends to a wise man, he doesn’t know the doctrine, as the spoon doesn’t know the soup’s flavour. If a…

Sapphire coast

A few hundred kilometers south along the coast the ocean gets a little icier with deep cold currents from Antarctica, and along with golden rocks and beaches, the colour of the sea changes to a beautiful sapphire green. Sitting between Bermagui and Tathra, lies the Mimosa Rocks National Park named after a vessel that was…

Week 42 – Sunny Autumn to Winter in 1 Week ….

  I have been making the most of the lovely sunshine we have been having recently … the weather here in Wales has been a bit nuts, lovely sunshine one day, torrential rain the next and then last weekend we had the 1st smattering of Hail/Snow up on the mountains. These two images were shot…

Week 28: Composition, Composition, Composition

As mentioned in my last post I shot 3 rolls in the Holga for Holga week.  This post is in relation to the second roll which was Kodak Ektar 100.  A film I like and have also seen great results when others have used it. For Holga week I was keen to shoot as many…

Weeks 17-19 continued: Carry on Canaries

As you may have read previously, I’m just back from the island of Tenerife where I shot 4 rolls of Ektar and a couple of Neopan to add to the project. I locked myself away in a darkened garage to process the Acros on the day we got back, only to find that I had…

Week 8: Barns and Runways

This roll is from quite a while ago, but such is the case when clearing a backlog. These were mostly shot in Calvert County with my friend Justin on Ektar with my SQAi and an 80mm PS lens. No post other than basic cropping and inversion with ColorPerfect.

Week 11: Arboretum Birthday Shenanigans

For Week 11, I took a trip out to the Arboretum again with Teresa. Last time we only had about 45 minutes until they closed, so we got there much earlier this time so that we would have some time to explore. These are mostly macro shots, as the landscapes I took weren’t anything to…

Berries Flowers and Ektar

Its Week 25 for me and this is another roll put through Canon Elan 7N. I chose this camera because I trust it to make excellent exposures and I was testing my first roll of Ektar 100 which I hear is fussy when it comes to exposure. I shot it at box speed with a…
