Before Christmas, for a bit of photographic fun I added a roll of revolog Snovlox film to an order from Analogue Wonderland.

Snovlox is a limited edition black and white film with similar effects to revolog’s Volvox film, a colour film that adds bright green dots all over the negative… with Snovlox the dots are white, giving a wintry feel to images.

Snovlox’s base is the excellent Kodak T-MAX 100 and it’s processed as such, giving results such as those you see here.

I’m rather taken with the results from this film and will be buying some more while it’s still on sale (it’s only available between October and March). I’ve also got a couple of other revolog films in stock; Kolor and Streak and am looking forward to trying them both soon…

Tranquillity… a 60ft long narrow boat, moored on the Trent & Mersey Canal near Keepers Lock at Fradley Junction.

A brisk morning stroll and a spot of ‘gongoozling’ before the first outdoor pub lunch of the year (and a couple of pints of Everards Tiger) at The Swan.

Throwback Thursday… Cley Windmill, March 2015

Fujifilm X-E1, Fujinon XF 18-55mm f2.8~4 R LM OIS at 33mm, 1/25s, f3.6, ISO 3200

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was the windmill at Cley next the Sea in Norfolk.

The light was fading rapidly and unfortunately my tripod was packed underneath everything else in the boot of the car so I had to rely on the 18-55’s Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) and a high ISO to get any image at all…

Olympus OM-2 Spot/Program, Zuiko Auto-T 100mm f/2.8 – 1/125s, f8½, – Ilford HP5 Plus rated at ISO 640

A wander in the woods last week to have a play with a pinhole camera also gave me the chance to finish off a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus that’s been sitting in an Olympus OM-2 Spot/Program since December…

I certainly had more success with the Olympus than with the pinhole camera, the shots from that definitely won’t be appearing on here!
