Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole, 10s, f167 – Kodak Ektar rated at ISO 50

An image from the first roll of colour film through my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

I still feel I’m struggling with the camera to subject distance but I don’t think it really matters in this pic too much…

Single frame… Hollyhocks at No.6

An image from one of my first colour rolls developed by Analogue Wonderland’s new ‘Wonderlab’

They certainly won’t be the last rolls I send them though… lovely clean negatives (albeit sleeved in strips of four, I prefer strips of six) and excellent scans make me a very happy bunny!

Yet another image from the fantastic Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole camera.

An image from a roll of film that’s been lurking in a camera for almost a year…

Monochrome Monday… Market Day

I’m slowly gaining confidence when it comes to candid/street photography, it’s a slow process as although cameras are now commonplace, people seem to be far more wary of them.

Market day in Mansfield was a good place to practise though, folks were far more interested in getting their fruit and veg!
