The Sound Tower, Chapel Six Marshes
Nikon FA, Nikkor 85mm f/2 AI-S – 1/125s, f11, – CineStill BwXX rated at ISO 250
The Sound Tower is part of The Structures on the Edge (SOTE) project, a fascinating series of installations on the Lincolnshire coast.
Designed by R Cannon and M Springett, London, the tower is ‘a device that focuses people’s senses and amplifies the windy nature of the site.’
I’ve no idea what the pipes in the foreground are for…

It’s so easy to lose track of time when ‘researching’ something on the internet… In this case it’s the ageing Aveling-Barford roller seen above.
I mean, I don’t ‘need’ to know which model it is or when it was built to post an image of it here but I’ve still lost over an hour today browsing various websites for information and can still only hazard a guess that it’s a model A2 that dates from the 1930s…

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800
A shot from my first roll in a charity shop find Diana+ camera. I’m not entirely sure how I messed up the film loading but none of the images are even remotely centred on the negative strip, they’re all cropped by the top edge of the film…
I’m quite fond of the little beast though and have a couple more rolls from it waiting development.
That’s right, Freelance Wastrel is one year old today!
A quick count up gives a total of 192 posts containing 182 images.
I’ve used five digital cameras, 27 film cameras and 23 different film stocks.
Thanks to you all for reading, following and putting up with my ramblings. Needless to say, I’ll be celebrating with a pint or two later…

Although a lot of the sunflowers hereabouts have ‘gone over’ already, this field is still quite photogenic…
