What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the seaside town of Bridlington in Yorkshire.

It’s a town I never get bored with visiting and I’m hoping to visit again in June for Race the Waves ’22

Monochrome Monday… Roker, February 2022

Ondu 135 Panoramic Pinhole + ND6 filter, 25s, f167 – Kosmo Foto Mono
Developed in Adox Rodinal at 1:50, 9 mins at 20°c.

The first roll of film through my Ondu 135 Panoramic pinhole camera wasn’t a total success, the first half of the roll suffering from overlapping frames as a result of me not counting ‘clicks’ correctly as the film’s sprocket holes catch on a small ‘tongue’ as the film is wound on…

I did eventually realise there is a definite ‘click, click, CLICK!’ though and counting the ‘CLICK’ has prevented overlapping frames.

Fujica GW 690 Professional, EBC Fujinon 90mm f/3.5, 1/500s, f9.5 – CineStill BwXX
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:9, 12 mins at 20°c.

An image from a roll of film that’s been sitting in the ‘to be developed’ pile since August last year!

Stone Stair Carpet by Colin Wilbourn is part of a sculpture walk along the River Wear in Sunderland and replace the worn out originals at the old North Dock.

This was my first roll of CineStill BwXX in 120 format and the first I’ve developed myself… I will definitely be shooting more!
