Square Saturday… Funk

Diana+ – Lomo CN 400

I’m obviously still having problems with loading film into my charity shop find Diana+… I’m also getting too close to my subject matter as most of my shots are far too tightly framed, a problem exacerbated by my dodgy film loading technique.

This shot is OK though, something I spotted during a wander around Cosne-sur-Loire in the Nièvre department in central France.

Olympus XA – Lomography Colour 400

I had a number of films returned from the lab this morning, this shot is from a roll that’s been sitting in a drawer for a while and I had no idea what was on it, only that it came out of my Olympus XA…

Fuji Superia 400

I started my return to film photography in 2016 and was even worse at making notes then than I am now… as a result I’m not even sure which camera this image was shot on… I ‘think’ it was an Olympus XA that I’d received as part of the Emulsive ‘Secret Santa’ a few weeks previously but I’m not 100% sure!

This empty shop is in Donzy, a commune in the Nièvre department in central France, I don’t know how long it’s been vacant for but retail properties don’t seem to sell quickly in rural France so it may have been empty for years. I’d love to have seen it (and shopped there) when it was still in business…

Monochrome Monday… A hole in the roof

Kershaw 450, Otar Anastigmat 80mm f/4.5 – 1/50s, f8.5, – Ilford HP5+

A folder of scans from a roll of Ilford HP5+ that I shot last January turned up this afternoon (when I was looking for something else entirely!) so I thought I might as well post an image from it…

Luckily this hole is in the roof of one of the two disused piggeries at a friend’s house in the Nièvre department of France. It was shot on Ilford HP5+ using a Kershaw 450 folding camera that I’m planning on writing about in an upcoming post… watch this space as they say…
