I processed a handful of films today. My film database ticked over the 5000th negative and I promised myself I would publish the 5000th picture, whatever it was.
Turns out the 5000th photo is a picture I took on Troopers Hill on a misty morning in October. This view is looking towards Dundridge Park . I like how the combination of trees and mist makes it look like a little village nestled into a remote forest – very atmospheric.
The picture was taken with a rather unusual SLR, the Canon EX EE. It’s a bit wacky because the rear half of the lens is permanently fixed to the camera body, while the front half unscrews and is interchangeable. For this picture, I used the EX 95mm f/3.5 lens.
