One more image from my recent visit to Coventry to see the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression, more commonly known as the ‘Knife Angel’.

Yet another shot from the Fujica GW 690 camera that I’ve got on loan…

Some more films back from the lab today… This is another image from the Fujica GW 690 that I’ve currently got on loan and it’s on my first roll of Bergger Pancro 400 film.

It’s difficult to judge from just eight shots but the results from this film are quite soft (contrast-wise) which isn’t something I’m particularly used to… I’m pleased with the images though and will order a couple more rolls to experiment with.

Monochrome Monday… Vintage section

Fujica GW690 – 1/60s, f8, – JCH Street Pan rated at ISO 800

My first roll of JCH Street Pan film in 120 format. I’m not sure what went wrong but the negatives are very thin indeed… Did I forget to mark the roll for push-processing when I sent it to the lab?

This is part of the vintage section in the Sue Ryder charity shop on Goodramgate in York. They had an assortment of photographic bits and bobs when I called in before Christmas but the only thing I bought was a Sporran!

Another shot from the first roll through a borrowed Fujica GW690.

Carr Wood has featured on here before (a few times in fact), it may only be a tiny patch of woodland but it’s always a pleasant place for a stroll with a camera…

A couple of weeks ago a friend was kind enough to lend me one of his cameras (thanks James!), a Fujica GW690, a fixed-lens rangefinder giving eight 6×9 images on 120 roll film.

So far I’ve managed to shoot a couple of rolls with it and following a delivery from Analogue Wonderland I’m now ready to shoot a few more!
