Silver On Blue

29-11-18

The weather has not been very good over the last few days in my part of the UK, the barometer was well into stormy when I looked this morning. The forecast for tomorrow though looks more promising. So I will set the alarm for early and go out for a walk with a film camera, probably to the local Arboretum where I took the following shots on a lovely sunny October day.

These were taken on my old Olympus E620 Digital with a polarising filter.

Botanic Gardens On Film & Atomic Rooster

02-11-17

Had the film developed from my lovely sunny visit to the University Botanic Gardens last week. I don’t mind scanning in negatives too much so long as I have a good supply of coffee, nicotine tablets, and some good music to listen to. A 70’s prog rock selection seemed just right, Atomic Rooster was the first album to hit the speakers, and it brought back memories of seeing them at Leicester Poly in 1971 ish, followed by selections of Camel, Baker Gurvitz Army, Bad Company, and some early Electric Prunes.

I used a polarising filter on some of these shots to bring the colours out and darken the sky. It was my first time using Fuji C200 film (kindly donated by one of my photowalk buddies) I have to say I’m quite impressed with it.
