Rust Never Sleeps #1

16-07-19

Apart from being the title of one of my all time favourite singer songwriter’s albums it’s also a problem I’ve had with my old Franka Solida 11 camera. The first time I used it I got a lot of scratch marks on the film.

Franka Solida

I bought the Franka a few years ago, quite cheaply, apart from the rangefinder not working (I have a clip on one) there were a lot of rust patches inside the camera. I gave the offending parts a good clean with metal polish before I loaded this roll, it has helped, but not quite got rid of all of them. I’ve since buffed the area where the rust was with a scouring pad, we’ll see how this worked with the next roll.

I shot these images in June on Ilford HP5+ and Dev’d the film in Ilford ID11.

Love the countryside and calmness around the old abbey.

      After putting a roll of film through it a few years ago and seeing all the scratch marks on the film I thought what the heck I can’t make it any worse 😧 It was a lot better this time, and hopefully even better next time.
