Week 40 : Really? Week 40 already?

Seriously, people. I can’t believe I’m posting week 40 (and I’m about 4 weeks behind). What happened to the year? While I haven’t stuck to all my goals for the year, I have learned to use and love a few new cameras, and managed to shoot more film than I might otherwise have done, given…

Week 9: Good News, Bad News

Good news – I started another roll on our trip to Newcastle at the start of the week, and finished it on a trip to Wakefield on Tuesday. Bad news – It was Velvia slide film so I wouldn’t be able to process it myself. Good news – I had been meaning to try FilmDev.co.uk after…

Roll 24: Velvia in an Argus 75

Welcome to Lake Tahoe, Nevada.    The following shots were taken at the Cave Rock boat ramp on the eastern shore with an Argus 75 on Fuji Velvia 50/120 film.   I think the blue vignetting is perfect with the Tahoe blue.   Just perfect.   This little spot is a great for a mid-week quick…
