Botanic Gardens On Film & Atomic Rooster

02-11-17

Had the film developed from my lovely sunny visit to the University Botanic Gardens last week. I don’t mind scanning in negatives too much so long as I have a good supply of coffee, nicotine tablets, and some good music to listen to. A 70’s prog rock selection seemed just right, Atomic Rooster was the first album to hit the speakers, and it brought back memories of seeing them at Leicester Poly in 1971 ish, followed by selections of Camel, Baker Gurvitz Army, Bad Company, and some early Electric Prunes. 

Film Shots From The Olympus – OM101/88, with 50mm, and 35-70mm lenses

I used a polarising filter on some of these shots to bring the colours out and darken the sky. It was my first time using Fuji C200 film (kindly donated by one of my photowalk buddies) I have to say I’m quite impressed with it.

        Yes, Pentax 50mm 1.7, Chinon 50 1.7 both great lenses, but Pentax much better build quality. Pentax 135mm 3.5, nice lens, Pentax 28mm 2.8 not bad but not one of my favourites.
