Film

Steam train to Mallaig

On The Jacobite heading from Fort William to Mallaig. Pre-set the camera, stuck it out the window and this is the result. Can’t say fairer than that.

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.

Cab to the pier

August 10, 2010 Diana, Film, People

I’ve been thinking over the last week or so that I need to blow the dust off the Diana and throw some film into it. I’m far more inclined to do that than go to the trouble of bringing the bronica out with me. This photo is neither here nor there really, it’s just a Diana Velvia shot from NYC that I was somewhat happy with and represents my inclination to shoot some more of the same!

Darrens Donkey

Neither of these two were going to get much in the way of peace until the perfect angle was found. From the Airfield Farm photowalk.

Riding the Rails

May 30, 2010 Black and White, Film, Holland

On the way from Dordrecht to Amsterdam to catch a flight home. Second time lucky. Last time we tried this route I got the dreaded \’volcano\’ text from Aer Lingus.

The Other Stairs

You’ve already seen the ‘famous’ stairs of Charleville Castle. Here’s the other one. Taken during the visit last year.

A sense of belonging

I can’t get home tonight, or tomorrow night or possibly the night after. There are places I’d rather be and people I’d rather be there with. Also, happy 2nd birthday glasseyalley

Welcome to Spanish

An evening stroll on the deserted beach at Spanish Point in Clare. This reminds me that I need to break out the Bronica again very soon.

Sheep of the Apocalypse

Distant relative of the swans, here stands the most menacing sheep you’ll ever lay eyes on. Not small, just far away. Menacing all the same though

The Gangs all Here

March 1, 2010 Black and White, Event, Film, People

Brogans, Trim. After the chilly photowalk came a nice hot dinner and a few cold pints. Neopan 1600 pushed to 3200. Came out quite well, apart from the crappy scanning.

Take a Load Off

February 28, 2010 Black and White, Event, Film

Another from Newtown Cemetery in Trim and the first of the film. Took alomst as long to remove the dust from a few shots as it did to scan three 36exp rolls. Should really clean the scanner.

Perspective

February 28, 2010 Diana, Film, Landscape

Small/Far away. You decide. New York from out on the east river.

Fixtures and Fittings

February 25, 2010 Black and White, Bronica ETRS, Event, Film

Making my way downstairs from yesterdays shot. There’s something about this area of the castle that both the Bronica and the panf really, really liked.

Top Floor

February 24, 2010 Black and White, Bronica ETRS, Event, Film

Finally developed and scanned a couple of rolls of PanF 50 from Charleville last year. Wouldn’t ya know it, grabbed the Bronica, stuck it on the tripod and headed straight for the stairs. Predictable or what?

Pave

February 18, 2010 Black and White, Dublin, Film

The well worn square at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Kinda.. Hypnotic…

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!
