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…

Week 6…..52 roll.net

So heading into week 6,I had made another purchase!….Call me crazy,IDK,but I am so loving the film right now…..I purchased a zenza Bronica ETRSi ,came with a 75mm 2.8 zenzanon-pe lens, a film back(which was for 220 film, but searched the internet and found a back for 120 film) a lens hood and a prism.I…

Week 5 / 52 rolls.net

Week 5 has me still playing with the Yashica Mat. I’m having a tuff time with compositions, as  you can see on some with the horizon line. It takes getting used to, but i’m getting there… Once again I used Ilford HP5 400. I am really enjoying this format, and the Yashica Mat. The last…

Week 4 is here and I’m just a little excited as of yesterday I picked up the Yashica Mat TLR that I had brought back last week to be repaired….problem with the focusing….all fixed ! Now this is the first time i’ve ever used one of these and also first time i’ve ever shot 120…

2-3/ 52 rolls

I’ve had a very busy 2 weeks of work so I wasn’t able to develop and scan until today.A week and a half ago I purchased a yashica mat tlr,but unfortunately when I got it home there was a problem with the focus dial and I had to bring it back where I bought it…

Week 50 – Kodak Portra 800 in the mist ….

Slightly out of order again as I shot this roll last weekend and wanted to see how Portra 800 looked as I have never shot it in 120 format before. The weather was cold and pretty drab with quite a lot of mist up on the mountains here so I thought that it was appropriate…

Week 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

Week 48 – 15 years Expired ….

As I have said in a previous post I have a lot of expired Slide film stored in my fridge with the intention to cross-process it from time to time. This roll of Fuji Sensia 400 expired back in 2002, I am not sure how most of the rolls were stored which is why I am cross processing…

Week 42: Foggy

So for this update I was finally back out with the Holga.  I had been neglecting this camera for a while, partly because I needed a change and partly due to dull grey winter weather making it a little less suitable. Anyway I had this camera with me as the day before was the work…

2016-52: Instant Holidays

This is my “Roll” 52 for 2016, though in fact it includes images from 4 packs of instant film. I am amazed that I got to this point on time this year as I was unable to post or even comment on other people’s posts for several months due to being away and totally off…

Week 45 – Posting out of sequence ….

I have realised that I am posting slightly out of sequence with my next 3 posts due to developing/scanning mishap. I had 6 rolls of film to catch up with and having not marked very well I have managed to process them out order in which shot. I want to get as much done this…
