Nikon F-801s, AF Nikkor 24-50mm f/3.3-4.5 at 50mm, 1/125s, f5.6, Lomography Lady Grey rated at ISO 320

Another image from a trip to Portobello and Leith in August.

I love how the shadow falls in this alley off Bernard Street in Leith. The double yellow lines seem like overkill in an alley barely wide enough for a car!

Another image from the recent test roll put through my resealed Nikon FE2.

I’ve no idea what kind of tree this is, I just loved the texture and the shadows… The shady spot it created was welcome on this particularly sunny spring day too!

Monochrome Monday… Little Chester, Derby, January 2019

Contax T2, Carl Zeiss T* 38mm f/2.8 lens – 1/125s, f8, – Silberra Ultima 160

A snapshot taken on a bright but bitterly cold day in January this year. This was my first roll of Silberra film and I doubt it’ll be my last even though the results I obtained from it were less than spectacular…

This roll was shot at the box speed of ISO 160 but I think that my next roll I’ll try at ISO 100, it seems to be a film that would benefit from overexposure…

Single frame… Pinhole image of Chester Green, Derby

Fujifilm X-T10, thingyfy 11mm Pinhole Pro S, 1.1s, f79, ISO 400

Last year I posted an image taken using a Wanderlust Pinwide 22mm pinhole lens on a Panasonic Lumix GF-1 and mentioned that I was rather tempted to find something similar for my Fujifilm X system.

Ten months later (and thanks to an eBay bargain), I have, in the shape of the thingyfy Pinhole Pro S and the above image is one of my first taken with it.

The effective aperture of f79 isn’t particularly ‘pinholey’ and as a result the image is very soft but I have a cunning plan to both reduce the angle of view (which is very wide at 11mm) and the effective aperture…

Watch this space…
