Monochrome Wednesday (PhotoBuddies Outing)


Another contribution to “Monochrome Wednesday” combined with the PhotoBuddies outing to the Lincolnshire coast.

When I developed this film I thought I had already put 2 films through the stock developer solution so increased the developing time to compensate, I hadn’t put any films through, in consequence this roll was overdeveloped, but thanks to the latitude of Ilford HP5+ and with some help from Lightroom I managed to retrieve some images.

The sea goes out a long way at low tide in this area.

Placed the camera on the tripod, set the self timer and dashed back to the PhotoBuddies, the wind caught the camera strap and masked us out perfectly !

That’s me on the right.

The military use this area for target practice, hence the old tank chassis. Apparently
it’s an A34 Comet Tank.

It was a great PhotoBuddies outing. We went down the coast a bit to Mablethorpe, a very traditional seaside resort. Had some really excellent Fish & Chips and a walk along the sea front. Took some images with my film compact camera, will post these soon.

    I think it’s safe to say that WAS an A34 Comet! 😀

    Great post and some stunning photos – I really do like all of them. The strap made me laugh, Self timer photography is always fun, I’ve lost count of the photo’s I have of me running back to everybody else because I’d set the wrong time!

    I was born in Bashkortostan and in the place I live were a lot of wide open spaces. I miss them anyway I go now. Looking at your picture I understood that one of the reasons why I like to be on the seashore is that it’s a wide opened space.

      I think these places give a feeling of freedom and lightness, well for me they do. Just had a look at some images of Bashkortostan, wow it looks lovely. The UK has some amazing places, but it’s hard to get away from the traffic and people sometimes.
