Yet another image from the roll of Kodak Tri-X shot in a borrowed Nikon F…

This four-wheel, five plank railway wagon, was photographed at the Midland Railway Butterley (MR-B) in October last year. Not much is known about it other than it was built by Harrison & Camm Ltd of Rotherham and was acquired by the MR-B from Royal Naval Armament Depot (RNAD) Bedenham in Hampshire.

Monochrome Monday… Bullseye!

Another shot from the recent test roll put through my resealed Nikon FE2.

I’ve had a couple of Nikon’s screw-in close-up lenses squirrelled away for a while and this is the first time I’ve used the No.2 (3.0 diopter) version.

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!
