Culross has one of the oldest harbours in Scotland and was a busy port in the 16th and 17th centuries trading coal and salt with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Denmark.

Since the 1930s the National Trust for Scotland have been working on preserving and restoring its many unique historical buildings.

The pier was neglected for many years but thanks to the efforts of determined locals its restoration is now complete.

The Hopper Dredger UKD Orca can also be seen in the distance.

Square Saturday… Another pic from the Diana+

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800

While I’m eagerly awaiting the postie rattling the letter box with an envelope of negatives from AgLab (an envelope that should include two rolls from my charity shop find Diana+), I thought I’d post another image from my first roll with said camera…

Lots more vignetting on this pic and I can only assume that this is down to the wider aperture (the ‘cloudy’ setting) that I used for this, the first shot on the roll.

Scan by AgLab with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Square Saturday… First roll in the Diana+

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800

A shot from my first roll in a charity shop find Diana+ camera. I’m not entirely sure how I messed up the film loading but none of the images are even remotely centred on the negative strip, they’re all cropped by the top edge of the film…

I’m quite fond of the little beast though and have a couple more rolls from it waiting development.
