Saw this makeshift post box outside a church that was having some renovation work carried out. It was really dark and I really didn’t expect much of an image, Fomapan 100 and the little half frame Agfa (and my focus guesstimate) did well here.
Five Bar Gate (I know it’s not really a door) A couple of months back the weather was kind and so I took a drive to one of my favourite places, Launde Abbey. It gave me an opportunity to try out a new to me second hand lens. It was a lovely day and I always find the Abbey and grounds so peaceful and relaxing.
Well I have 4 cameras loaded with film, 2 of which are nearly complete and 2 just started, the weather has been a bit changeable so I haven’t been out photo walking recently, and I’m busy trying to tidy the house. So I thought I’d post a few images from August taken on a walk around the local arboretum, church and town. I was using my newly CLA’d Olympus OM2sp and experimenting with Rollei Superpan 200.
On my visit to Abbey Park, Leicester on Friday I took the Olympus with me loaded with Fomapan 400 asa, never used this film before. Developed it in D76 stock solution, and scanned it in this morning accompanied by music from the excellent Sam Baker, and The Lonesome Brothers.
Oh dear, just couldn’t resist ! I was bored and saw it on that auction site. No one else placed a bid so it was mine for £4.50p ($6.00 – €5.30) Luckily it all works as it should. Found a roll of Tesco film (exp 2008) made in Italy it says on the box (Ferrania I guess) hadn’t been fridge stored so didn’t know what to expect.
While looking for some old software today I came across a CD labeled 02-02 Spurn Head, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spurn then it all came back to me. I remember I was getting a bit stir crazy and needed to get out on the road, Spurn Head Yorkshire seemed an interesting place so off I set on a very foggy Sunday morning, only 145 miles(233 km)
Within 5 miles of Spurn Head amazingly the fog cleared, and the sun came out. The photo’s were taken on my Olympus OM2n with 135mm and 24mm Zuiko lenses on Kodak Ektachrome 200asa, I really miss that film stock.
