Mist + Bristol = Mistol. Well, I thought it was funny anyway. These two shots were taken on a roll of film that’s been in my Zeiss Super Ikonta A 531 for a few weeks. Many of the pictures didn’t come out, because I forgot that the 1937 Tessar lens is not coated, and flares veryContinue reading “Mistol”
This picture was taken for the industrial photo challenge, and depicts a construction site in Bristol on a misty morning.
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 .Continue reading “Negative #5000”
This week we had a couple of really foggy days in Bristol (and much of the rest of the country too, I gather). I love the fog so I went out shooting. I took a Zorki 4 rangefinder with Jupiter 8 and Jupiter 12 lenses and my Canon EOS 600D DSLR with Canon EF-S 17-85mmContinue reading “A foggy day in Bristol town”
Readers of my blog should know by now that I love fog and mist. There was a thick fog over Troopers Hill the other morning so I got out of bed early on my day off to capture it. I’ve experimented with a different layout of pictures this time – click the pictures to seeContinue reading “A foggy day up Troopers Hill”
I took these photos of Oldbury Court Estate in October but it’s taken me a while to get round to processing the film, as I have moved house. The good news is my new darkroom is much larger and better equipped. The first film to emerge from it has come out perfectly. These photos areContinue reading “Misty morning”
This picture of Troopers Hill inspired me to look up John Keats’s well-known poem. I also entered this picture into the Photo Challenge. To Autumn Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; ToContinue reading “Season of mists”
I posted the other day with some pictures of frost, fog and ice from Oldbury Court. I actually shot most of a second film on the same day, and I’ve only just finished and processed it. I think these pictures are even better than the last lot, and probably some of my favourite photos ofContinue reading “More of Winter at Oldbury Court”
The sun rises over Dartmoor on a misty day.
