One For The Road

26-11-18

Every year I meet up with an old buddy of mine that I’ve known since the early 1980’s, as he stops over this involves me giving the house an annual thorough clean and tidy. We met up in a Real Ale pub in the town and then went to see a friends band playing, it was a great night, bumped into some people I hadn’t seen for awhile and the beer flowed. The hangover has finally receded, it’s taken two days, trouble is the older I get the longer it takes me to recover. The weather hasn’t been too good for photography over the last couple of weeks but while I was tidying up I found a Photo CD with some images from March 2000, they were taken at the Santa Pod drag strip in Northamptonshire (I do like the sound of a V8 engine) All the photos were taken on my Olympus OM2sp, most of them with my Zuiko 24/135mm lenses on Fuji 100asa colour print film.

4 Rolls Loaded

14-11-18

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.

Olympus OM2sp – Rollei Superpan #1

9-08-18

Had my Olympus OM2sp serviced at Luton Camera Repair last month as the film wind on was misbehaving. They did a great job with it, replacing all the foam light seals, checking the electronics, and re tensioning the shutter. The camera felt really good so I took with me on a walk to the local arboretum. It was a really hot humid day, but there were some nice clouds about.

Most of the images were taken using 24mm Zuiko, and 50mm Zuiko lenses, using a Red or R72 Infrared filter

The film has given the Fir a bit of a surreal look.

I’ll post some more shots from this roll over the next few days.

Bike Ride Addendum

26-7-18

Here are a few more images from my bike ride taken with an Olympus OM2sp which has just been serviced. I loaded it with Rollei Superpan film and used a 24mm Zuiko lens with a Red filter to get a bit of an infrared look.

They were a really friendly pair, the bigger one got so close that she steamed up my lens filter.

A Blast From The Past

Trying to get some motivation to redecorate my spare bedroom/computer room. I started to sort through the stuff that’s accumulated in there over the last few years and as usual got waylaid by things I had forgotten about. One of those things was a box of prints with a CD of the images, they were from March 2000, taken at Santa Pod Drag Strip. I remember going with my Olympus OM2sp and Zuiko 135mm 2.8 lens, it was a run what you brung day.

Same place a few days later with the Olympus OM2sp and Vivitar 19mm wide angle lens. Shot on Fuji Superia 200 (only just out of date) The wind on mechanism decided to stop working properly so I only got a few shots off this roll.

I think the Pen EE3 does a great job when compared to it’s full frame brother.
