What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

14 years ago I was snapping away on a walk through Wensleydale (‘cracking cheese Gromit!’)

This image proves that it’s worth turning around to look where you’ve been from time to time… this clump of trees in Wensley Park was only lit like this for a few seconds!

Slide Film Sunday… POW ITALIAN

An image from November 2003 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

Yet again I’ve no notes as to the camera or film used for the above pic but I’m reasonably sure it was taken using a Nikon F75, AF NIKKOR 24-85mm f/2.8-4D and Fujichrome Sensia film.

This inscription could (can?) be found atop a gate post in the Yorkshire village of Wensley and is believed to have been made during World War Two by a work party from one of the nearby prisoner of war camps.

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Today I’m trying out the excellent Negative Lab Pro plugin for Lightroom with on scans made with my Epson Perfection 4870 Photo flatbed scanner… So far things are looking pretty good!

Following advice on the Negative Lab Pro forum I’m scanning my black & white negatives as 48-bit colour positives (with all sharpening/correction/restoration options turned off). Next thing is to try a few colour negatives!

The above image was taken (I think) the day after a friend’s wedding in October 1999 (Hi Marie! Hi Andy!) during a brief wander around the university city of Cambridge.

Another image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ outing to Curbar Edge in the Peak District.

The Nikon (not ‘Nikkor’) Series E 28mm f/2.8 is a lovely little lens, tiny and lightweight and it’s often in my bag when I’m not planning on needing a wide-angle lens. The Series E lenses are underrated but I’m a big fan, owning the 28mm, 50mm, 100mm and the fantastic 75-150mm zoom!
