These pictures were taken on a lazy walk after work on a warm summer’s evening. There was a lovely glow in the air and people were relaxed. I did my best to capture the easy vibe with my Zorki-4, Jupiter-8 and a roll of Agfa Vista 200, aka Poundland film.Read more "Summer evening in Bristol"
These photos are film a film I shot in June but only recently got processed. I normally process all my own films at home but this was one was a slide film and I send those away. I don’t have the chemicals required to process colour slides and I definitely don’t have the patience to […]Read more "Playing catch-up"
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 17-85mm […]Read more "A foggy day in Bristol town"
My entry for this week’s Photo Challenge is a pair of pictures taken on St Augustine’s Parade, Bristol – also known in the past as The Tramways Centre and today simply as The Centre. The first picture was taken in 1955 by a relative of one of my colleagues. I took the second picture on 13th […]Read more "Then & Now"
It’s not just the year 2014 that rolled over yesterday – I also developed two films and added the negatives to my database, which rolled over 4000 negatives too. The first film I shot with my Zorki 4 rangefinder, mostly at the German Christmas market in Bristol. I also took some pictures when my colleague […]Read more "4000th negative"
Project 35 is complete! I went to ASDA this morning as my film scanner is broken, and had my film developed and put onto CD. I’ve done the bare minimum of editing with these pictures – they are rough and ready, and exactly as they came out of the camera (a 1956 Zorki-4 rangefinder with […]Read more "Project 35 – Out now!"
I started Project 35 on 22nd August. If all had gone to plan, I would have finished the film on the 26th September. However, nothing ever goes to plan. I’ve only used about half the film so far. I’ve been busy, I’ve been ill, I had time off work and accidentally left my camera on my desk. […]Read more "Project 35 – hopefully resuming soon!"
OK, so this is a slight scam. I went to Bristol Harbour on three occasions recently. Only one was the Harbour Festival but I’ve bundled all the pictures into one post. They’re in chronological order. The black & white pictures were taken in early July when Hannah and I were visited by Fraser and Suzie. […]Read more "Bristol Harbour Festival"
I’ve had a film in my Zorki 4 for a few months now but it has seen hardly any use. I took it to work in central Bristol and left it on my desk, so it would be more likely to see some outings at lunchtimes. My cycling route to work takes me through Castle […]Read more "Mainly Cabot Tower"
I’ve been carrying the Zorki with me recently so these photos are from assorted days and occasions. The first two were taken by the coast at Portishead. This is my favourite tree. It’s in Oldbury Court, and I think it’s a chestnut tree because it has spiky things that look a bit like conkers (I’m […]Read more "Some photos from the Zorki"
