August 31, 2018 Canon A-1, Film, Scotland

Going back a bit here to 2010 and a trip to Scotland. Lunch for a hungry reindeer. Fuji Neopan 400 if I remember correctly. I’m coming across all kinds of little surprises while going through & cleaning up my lightroom catalog.

Bluebell Hunt

In Cork two weekends in a row (a rare treat) and the promise was made to seek out some bluebells to photograph. Currabinny woods has nealy always been a good spot, something I believe I pointed out on the morning we were setting out to go and take some photos. Without knowing I’d already jinxed the operation completely. Although there were bluebells, there was nowhere near the amount I’ve seen in previous years. So instead, I contented myself with usingRead More

Print Shopping

Choosing a print from the thousands on display over the weekend.

Trolley Boy

Just messing around with sliders at this stage. Watching people pass by while ‘shopping’ was attended to. Some town not too far from Dordrecht and quite close to Bleskensgraaf. That’s all I can tell you. I haven’t got a clue where I was.

James Steps

Stairs of a most peculiar length, each taking one and a half steps to climb. An interesting one to climb after a few pints, no wonder there’s a railing in the middle! Loving that 50 f1.8 on the film body. Oh yes.

Neighbours Front Garden

The gardens at IMMA, a five minute walk from home. Not too shabby for a quick stroll.

Trim

No, not that Trim, that\’s the weekend after next. This trim is the one they’ve given the hedges in the IMMA gardens. Testing out how close the 50 f1.8 on the A-1 would focus. This close apparently. Loving the neopan. Next I have to test some 100 iso ilford stuff

Lazy Saturday

No harm in posting one more coffee photo after all the others during the week. Anyway, what good is a lazy Saturday if you can’t pop into 3FE for a swift cappuccino? No bloody good, that’s what!

Table for Two

Another from the first roll in the A-1, this was killing a bit of time in the Powerscourt Center while Julie was oogling some fancy wool in the shop upstairs. “Mmmmm fancy wool” or something close to that was uttered several times. Also “worth every penny” and perhaps one more “mmmm fancy wool” for good measure.

Sunday Stroll

A stroll around the grounds at IMMA earlier today to finish off a roll in my newly acquired Canon A-1. Test passed. No light leaks or any other problems apparent on the negs. Apart from user error of course.
