What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was the fishing boat ‘Ellie Jane’ at East Runton near Cromer in Norfolk.

Fishing boats here are drawn up onto the beach by a variety of ageing tractors, this one (if memory serves) is a Fordson Power Major and has clearly seen better days!

We spent quite a bit of time at East Runton between 2012 and 2015, trading dog-sitting a friend’s Jack Russell for nights in a static caravan on the cliffs… it’s a lovely spot.

Monochrome Monday… Brighton on revolog Snovlox film

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…

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…

Monochrome Monday… Reflection, Lower Largo

I can’t wait to get back to the coast… any bit of coast will do but my favourite is that around Fife in Scotland. A stroll on the beach at Lower Largo followed by a pie and a pint in the Railway Inn would hit the spot today.
