Monochrome Monday… Socially distanced picnic table

Fujica GW690 + Y15 yellow filter – 1/125s, f8, – Foma Pan 400
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:9, 12 mins at 20°c.

An image from one of my last ‘pre-lockdown’ photographic forays…

Redhill Quarry, near Middleton in the Derbyshire Dales is now a nature reserve and picnic area and I had the place to myself on the bleak January day that I chose to visit (I was ‘social distancing’ before it was a necessity).

I can’t help feeling that the isolated picnic table has far more meaning now than when I photographed it…

Square Saturday… ‘Tin Tabernacle’

Yashica Mat 124G – 1/250s, f8 – Ilford FP4 Plus rated at ISO 100

Another image from a test roll of Ilford FP4 Plus put through a Yashica Mat 124G that I had repaired last year.

This ‘tin tabernacle’ is located at Swanwick Junction at the Midland Railway-Butterley and is officially known as ‘St. Saviours Church’ and is available for wedding blessings (although not the actual marriage ceremony for legal reasons), funerals and memorial services.

It originally stood at Westhouses near Alfreton and was built in 1898 with support from the Midland Railway (MR).

Olympus OM-2N, Zuiko Auto-W 28mm f/2.8, Y2 yellow filter – 1/60s, f8½, – Lomography Lady Grey rated at ISO 200
Developed in Ilfosol 3 at 1:9, 6½ mins at 20°c.

An image from a sheet of negatives I’d misplaced until tonight…

High Stacks, Flamborough Head, photographed during a ‘Photography Friday’ outing in August last year. Flamborough (and nearby Bridlington) is an area Rachel knows well and we’ve had a few excellent days up there.

My Olympus OM-2N started to suffer from a sluggish shutter towards the end of this roll but I’ve since had it serviced by the excellent PPP Repairs and can’t wait to use it again!

Another image shot on Kodak Ektachrome E100 last summer…

I’ve photographed this cheeky sign that advertises That Little Tea Shop in the Lanes in Brighton a few times but as yet I’ve not sampled said shop’s menu… I really must pop in for tea and cake at some point!

Another 20-year old image, taken on a borrowed Fuji GSW 690 III…

The Midland Railway-Butterley has featured on this blog many times before, whether the trains are running or not, there’s always something interesting to photograph.

Hopefully by now the boiler has been reunited with the rest of the locomotive!
