I took my Sigma DP1 with me on my walks to town over the last few days. It’s amazing what you can find left on the pavements and roads. I’ve gone all square for these images they just seemed to suit the format.
Solid Fuel and Me !
A load of Rubbish
At least they left it by the bin ! It was gone when I returned on my way back to home.
Here are a few shots on film from my visit to theBotanic Gardensa couple of weeks ago. I took the Olympus OM1n together with 50mm and 24mm Zuiko lenses. The film was Rollei Superpan 200, first time I’ve used this emulsion, apparently it can have a near infrared look when the lighting permits (sunshine) so ever the optimist I used Red and Green filters on the lenses to see what they would give, of course the day was fairly dull ! I developed the film in Rodinal which due to it’s age has now acquired the colour of a mature burgundy wine, but it worked really well.
Main House (very grand)

Looking forward to better weather so I can use some more of this film.
Had a quick walk into town today, it was really busy with people buying Halloween stuff. I managed to grab a few images on the way.
As I was taking a picture of this tree a chap came over to talk to me, he said this tree was part of the Acer family and Date family, not native to the UK but brought over by the Romans. You learn something new every day.
