Why! Oh why?

see, cleaver people are able to keep their wits about them even when so many other things (and 5 year olds) are vying for their attention.

Not me, I slipped up and opened the 4 roll tank “a bit”. Maybe I’ll get something off the bottom roll. I hate myself right now. Slicing life a bit on the thin side I think.

Time will tell.

[update] top roll is toast, next is badly streaked, bottom two might be usable…

[next update] streaks not so bad. Need to find scanning time. Quite behind… But in general I think I got lucky here.

My favourite camera

I like to campaign them. I was keen during my teens ( the 80s… ). Dad had a Nikon F, F2, and F3. I’d been given my mother’s Yashica 35, but I notice lots of photos from that era show me with the F.

Fast forward to today. I have a 5 year old and a D90. But Dad gifted me his film cameras, and I picked up some “dream” bodies for a song too. So my walking around cameras tend to change often, but whatever made the last “favourite” photo tends to be the go to body.

Now that my daughter can handle long city walks, I’m going for more cityscapes and street photos. So small and quiet are popular. If only I was any good…

I love my FA at the moment.


Here: industrial chain near where I work. Fuji 64D cross processed in C41. Nice texture. Sloppy remjet removal.

It’s hard to line up a sunset

When you see travelling and you want to take photos of things like sunsets, it’s all a bit hit and miss. Without knowing the best places for that time of year, you are often running around the streets in vain looking for a view that is a little more westerly. But there always seems like there is a building in the way.

Here are a few from Berlin tonight.
