Monochrome Monday… another forgotten roll…

Farm building, the NièvreFarm building, the Nièvre
Pentax MZ-M, Pentax-M 50mm f/2 – 1/60s, f8, – Kosmo Foto Mono

Another roll of film that’s been lurking in a camera since 2018…

I quite like the SMC Pentax-M lenses, not so keen on the MZ-M though… compared to my trusty Olympus OM cameras it feels a bit flimsy, perhaps I should try an ME Super or an MX instead?

Monochrome Monday… Quay Walls, Berwick-upon-Tweed

Quay Walls, Berwick-upon-TweedQuay Walls, Berwick-upon-Tweed
Nikon FE2, NIKKOR 35mm f/2 AI-S, 1/125s, f11 – Ilford Delta 400 Professional rated at ISO 320
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

Another pic from one of my visits to Berwick-upon-Tweed last year.

The buildings on Quay Walls date from the 18th century and are all at least Grade II listed.

The Nikkor 35mm f/2 AI-S lens has become a firm favourite as a slightly wider than standard ‘standard’ lens and I find myself using it more and more…

More people need to practise this…

So many of my friends, employed in service industries, are finding their working days being made thoroughly unpleasant thanks to customers who can’t even be ‘civil’ let alone ‘excellent!’ to them… Being on the recieving end of outright abuse is becoming a daily occurence for some of them and it needs to stop!

End of sermon…

This piece of street art was spotted in Norwich a few weeks ago, after an hour of trawling the internet I still don’t know who painted it but it may be the work of artist Tony Allen… If anyone knows for certain, please tell me.
