Contax G1, Carl Zeiss T* Biogon 28mm f/2.8 – Kodak T-Max P3200 rated at ISO 1600

A long forgotten folder of negatives surfaced this evening so I just had to fire up the scanner…

Another shot on (the recently re-introduced) Kodak T-Max P3200 black & white film, this time from May 1999. A lone tree growing out of the limestone pavement above Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales stands sentinel over the Pennine Way long-distance footpath.

Single frame… Photo Kodak Cine

I started my return to film photography in 2016 and was even worse at making notes then than I am now… as a result I’m not even sure which camera this image was shot on… I ‘think’ it was an Olympus XA that I’d received as part of the Emulsive ‘Secret Santa’ a few weeks previously but I’m not 100% sure!

This empty shop is in Donzy, a commune in the Nièvre department in central France, I don’t know how long it’s been vacant for but retail properties don’t seem to sell quickly in rural France so it may have been empty for years. I’d love to have seen it (and shopped there) when it was still in business…

Monochrome Monday… Pit Wheel

Canon Sure Shot Sleek, – Kentmere 400

A pit (colliery) wheel memorial at the gates of the Midland Railway-Butterley site at Swanwick Junction displayed ‘in remembrance of the miners of the highedge district who gave of their lives in local pits and those of their comrades who for nine hundred years worked in darkness and danger to help turn the wheels of industry.’

Another shot from my first roll of Kentmere 400 film, one of three that was a Christmas present from my wife, the Canon Sure Shot Sleek was yet another charity shop find.
