Something from the archives today…

Another shot on a film that I really should shoot again, Ilford SFX 200.

Southwell Minster is a striking building, easily dominating the small Nottinghamshire town of Southwell and in spite of only being 25 miles from my home I haven’t been back since 1997! Time to place a film order with Analogue Wonderland and plan a day out I think!

I paid a visit to the Erewash Museum‘s Motorcycle Open Day today…

There was a fantastic variety of bikes on display: custom Harley-Davidsons, modern tourers, a couple of ‘Rat‘ bikes and more classic Brits than you could shake a stick at!

The above image shows one of the many Triumphs on display and I’m reasonably certain that it’s a 1960 T120 Bonneville (but I’m happy to be corrected if I’m wrong).

Single frame… 20.18 to Brighton

A shot from the digital archives tonight…

An unidentified class 377 ‘Electrostar’ electric multiple unit crosses Worthing Road at Angmering with the 19.32 Southern service from Portsmouth & Southsea (the 20.18 from Angmering) to Brighton on 20 May 2015. I didn’t have a tripod with me so rested my camera on top of a handy fence post and hoped for the best!

This pic cropped up tonight while I was looking for something else entirely, my archives definitely need a good sort out!

Single frame… Crich Memorial Tower

Another image taken with my thingyfy Pinhole Pro S ‘lens’.

Last Sunday would have been my late father-in-law’s 99th birthday so Joy and I took some flowers up to Crich Stand, a memorial tower dedicated to the memory of the soldiers from the Sherwood Foresters Regiment who died in World War I and World War II* (Joy’s Dad lived to a ripe old age but spent World War II serving in North Africa and Italy with the regiment).

I thought I’d sneak a few minutes capturing a couple of images for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day while I was there…

*The memorial is also dedicated to those who died serving in the Sherwood Foresters Regiment from 1945 to 1970, the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment from 1970 to 2007 and the Mercian Regiment since 2007.
