E. PARKER, January 2015
Fujifilm X20, Fujinon Super EBC 7.1-28.4mm f2~2.8 at 9mm, 1/1500s, f8, ISO 400
What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Five years ago it was this ramshackle former business premises…
I’ve no idea who ‘E. Parker’ was, or what they did, but I love the building they left behind!

The first ‘Photography Friday’ trip of 2020 saw Rachel and I visit the Peak District National Park. These Silver Birches (Betula pendula) were captured in an area between Baslow Edge and the Baslow-Sheffield road known as Jack Flat, an area also home to a small herd of Highland cattle!

Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 18-135mm f3.5~5.6 R LM OIS WR at 22mm, 3.7s, f22, ISO 200
As the end of the year approaches we start to look forward to the next and one of the things I’m looking forward to is my ‘Photography Friday’ outings with my friend/partner in crime Rachel…
We’re definitely planning a return to the Lumsdale Valley near Matlock in Derbyshire to photograph the industrial ruins and the waterfalls again.
Christmas Tree, London St Pancras International, 2015
Fujifilm X-E1, Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8, 1/3s, f8, ISO 800
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…
A Christmas tree image from four years ago, captured at London St Pancras International railway station… If memory serves I steadied the camera by pressing it tightly up against one of the pillars that supports the upper level of the station.
2000 soft toys were provided by The Disney Store and when the ‘tree’ was taken down they were donated to KIDS, a charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.

BA287, Isle of Whithorn
Fujica GW690 + Y15 yellow filter – 1/250s, f11, – Kodak T-Max 400
Finally got around to scanning the films from my recent trip to the Isle of Whithorn!
Just before the trip I invested in a Tiffen Y15 yellow filter for the Fujica GW 690 that I’ve (still… thanks James!) got on loan and it stayed on the camera all week.
I’m not sure, but this might have been my first time shooting Kodak T-Max 400… If so, why haven’t I used it sooner? I love the combination of this film and filter!
