Nikon f801s & Sigma 28-80mm

I’ve used the Nikon a few times this year, love the large viewfinder, and the camera has a good feel to it. The Sigma lens has a macro function and from the one roll of film (8 or so years ago) was surprisingly good. So I thought it was about time the lens had another outing.

This is straight out of the scanner, no adjustments.

Just as I pressed the shutter she moved, she’s a lively cat, but I like the expression on her face, leave me alone !

Spotted these on a walk to town.

Canon EOS-500n (EOS Rebel G) #3

17-07-17

Last few from the Canon taken in my garden using the lovely Helios lens and an extension tube. It was really hard to focus with such a narrow depth of field and my eyes aren’t as good as they used to be.

I have to admit I needed to look up this flower as it was a self setter. The Bees really like it.

Can’t get these to grow where I want them, they seem to prefer the gaps between the paving slabs, so I guess they like a sandy soil.

I enjoyed using the Canon 500n especially with the Helios lens, it deserves another outing with some fresh film.

Mono Lake CA

I was inspired to post these images of Mono Lake by a lovely photograph taken by Mitch Zeissler of the tufa formations. It was 1993 when I visited on a road trip holiday to California. What a fantastic area, so much to see and do, I found the scenery breathtaking.

These images were taken on my Rolleiflex TLR and I’m guessing with a red filter. I remember wishing that the lens on the Rollei was a bit wider angle.

Olympus OM101/(OM88) #4 – Last Few

I managed to get a 50mm f2 lens (well another camera as it was cheaper than buying a lens on it’s own) for the last few frames on the roll.

I really enjoyed using the OM101, the manual adapter with 50mm lens let me get some nice out of focus backgrounds. I’ll definitely be using the camera again but at the moment I have 4 different cameras on the go.

Olympus OM101/(OM88) #3

A few more images from the Olympus OM101 and 35-70mm zoom, on Rollei Retro 400s film. They were taken in April at Oakham, Rutland. Was so lucky with the weather it was really bright, and almost warm.

Oregon Coast

It was way back in 2005 when I last visited the USA, on that trip I flew into Seattle and headed for the Olympic Peninsula (that’s for another blog post) and eventually on to the Oregon coast. The sense of space and big skies will always be in my memories. The weather was very much like UK weather so I felt quite at home ! and the people were really friendly.

It was in the days before I had a digital camera, all the photographs were taken on either my Olympus OM2sp or OM2n on Kodak Elitechrome 200.

Depoe Bay
Stopped off by chance at Depoe Bay, really lovely little town, went whale watching which was fantastic, and bought the best cotton T shirt I have ever had, can’t beat genuine American cotton.

In the evening the pacific mist would come rolling in, it gave the place a magical feel.

I really loved the Oregon coast, only wish I’d made more notes of the places where the photographs were taken.
