Steps In The Woods
Lathkil Dale Step Ladder #2
Olympus OM2n – Vivitar 19mm f3.8 – Konica ir750 film.

This is an old one from the archive, mid 1990’s I think. Taken on a walk in Lathkil Dale  Derbyshire. I was quite surprised to see these steps abandoned in the woods, they were nicely covered in moss. It was quite dark and I thought the image would be underexposed, the lens was wide open (not good for the Vivitar) but the lovely Konica infrared film didn’t let me down.

Monochrome Wednesday (PhotoBuddies Outing)

18-09-19

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.

Failed Group Shot

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.

Tank

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.

Olympus OM2sp – Zuiko 28mm f 2.0 – Ilford HP5+ – Ilford ID11

Took this image on Sunday (08-09-19) It was a lovely day, and so was the lunch in the Abbey Cafe. Thought I had already used the developer for 2 films so increased the development time, of course I hadn’t ! This over developed the film blowing some of the highlights, with the help of Lightroom I managed to get some reasonable images.

Another image from the archive taken on the road to Crater Lake, which followed the course of this river for quite some distance. There was hardly any other traffic on the road, and I remember stopping at a roadside cafe that was made from an old time railway caboose, lovely.
