Last Thursday’s Walk To Town

17-06-17

As well as taking pictures for my “Thursday Doors” post I managed a few quick shots around the town.

There was a continental market taking place in the town.

I’m still not that comfortable taking street shots of people, more practice I think.

New Light Seals In The Lomo

The last time I used my old Zenith Lomo I noticed the light seals were in a poor way. Found a supplier on an auction site that offered a laser cut kit, when it arrived I wasn’t too sure, the material was very similar to the leatherette that cameras are covered in, not the thin foam I was expecting. So after applying the new light seals I loaded up with a roll of Fuji Reala 100 that had expired in 2001, just in case the seals didn’t keep out the light. I headed to town and snapped away.

Well I needn’t have worried, the new seals are fine. Apart from the expected colour shift I was really surprised how well the film behaved, good job as I have 18 more rolls of Reala 100 in the fridge.

A Sunny Day (at last)

It was lovely and sunny today, about time. Having just had a haircut ! really felt the cold but the sunshine lifted my spirits. Most of the photographs were on a film camera today, I couldn’t resist this shot though while en route to the supermarket.

Yesterday’s walk to town

Made a quick trip into town for the usual cat food top up and a little bit of food for me. The weather was really good although the lighting was quite harsh so I was shooting mainly in HDR mode on the Sigma DP1.

I used to work here in the late 1980’s when it was the council headquarters, the building started falling apart so they demolished it last year. There was lots of movement in the scene the 3 shot HDR captured a bit of it.

No thanks

Riga – Olympus XA Ilford HP5+ #4

The shutter button on the Olympus XA is very sensitive and it’s easy to take an inadvertent shot, but I liked the way this one turned out.
