Infrared Week Part 7

Our final instalment of Infrared Week is an image of Clifton Suspension Bridge. Foliage turns white and the grass resembles snow. The stonework of the bridge appears a dark grey. This is my favourite image of Infrared Week, and so I have saved it until last ūüôā Mamiya C220 camera with Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 lensContinue reading “Infrared Week Part 7”

Netham and Glastonbury

Netham (in Bristol) and Glastonbury don’t really have anything in common, except that they shared a film in my Canon T90.

The bridge is a Grade I listed building but unfortunately it has a steel-frame bridge built¬†alongside¬†it onContinue reading “Netham and Glastonbury”

Cumberland Basin in the evening

It’s the Bristol Balloon Fiesta this weekend and tonight at 6pm there was scheduled to be a mass ascent of 100 hot air balloons near the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

The primitive camera on its own adds a certain aged effect to the photos, but the thing that really makes these photos look old is the accidental fogging. WhileContinue reading “Guess the year”

Clifton Suspension Bridge through a fisheye

Today the Autumn sunlight was beautiful, especially in the early evening. I decided to head over to Clifton Suspension Bridge to try out my new Samyang fisheye lens. First I climbed up the cliff to where the Clifton Observatory is, to get these shots of the bridge as a whole. I’ve been here in theContinue reading “Clifton Suspension Bridge through a fisheye”
