I have no idea what possessed me to shoot an ISO 3200 film in daylight (albeit rather dull February daylight…) but I shot a few rolls back in 1998, most of them on a Nikon F-801s that eventually got sold to a pal who continued to use it for ages.

A couple of years ago an identical camera cropped up (at a ridiculously low price) in the local branch of London Camera Exchange when I was Christmas shopping with a friend and I was thrilled to find it in a parcel with my name on under said friend’s tree on December 25th that year!

I still use it…

Autumn has well and truly arrived, there’s a nip in the air and this evening the smell of bonfires was everywhere… I’m already longing for days like this…
