A Few Images

A few images from the past 3 weeks or so. I have 3 film cameras on the go at the moment so haven’t been taking so many digital images, well that’s my excuse.

Sunshine & Demineralised Water

It was lovely and sunny in Leicester yesterday (for a change), so a walk to the cemetery seemed a good idea. Two reasons, to test out an old film camera, and to pick up some demineralised water for the final rinse when I develop film. 1 litre should be enough, but they only sold it in 5 litres = 5 kilos in weight, it felt very heavy after the 2 mile walk back to home ! Developed the film this afternoon, so we’ll see if it makes any difference, hopefully there won’t be so many hickies on the film.

Took my sigma DP1 with me to get some digital shots.

Thursday Doors & Top Hats

Here’s my contribution to this weeks Thursday Doors over at Norm 2.0 blog. Some great doors over there to check out.

Top Hat Terrace

It was a bit dull this morning when I took this image, my Sigma DP1 doesn’t like dull very much

This one is from last June when it was a bit brighter

Info Board

The Terrace was built for Francis “Tanky” Smith, Detective Inspector of Leicester Borough Police in 1864, and according to the info board the heads represent the different disguises he used to apprehend criminals.

Just around the corner from Top Hat Terrace is a road of lovely houses now mostly taken over by the University of Leicester.

Well I hope you enjoy these doors, I’ve certainly learnt a bit about the city I live in by photographing them.

“Happy New Year”

The weather over the last few days has been damp, cold, dull and misty. I managed to get into town last Wednesday, It was cold but bright and I took a few images on my walk in. 

Frosty Top

Now I wouldn’t mind cleaning off the ice if this were mine !

Frosty Seat

Probably not a good idea to sit on this.

Low Winter Light Reflections

Really caught my eye.

Vacant Lot

Liked the building at the back, it looks good in colour too.

Happy New Year to everyone.
