Another image from my charity shop find Olympus [mju] zoom.

There are many things I miss in these lockdown days but trips to the coast and ‘Photography Friday’ jaunts with Rachel are at the top of the list…

Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 9 mins at 20°c.

An image from what’s likely to be my last roll of Lomography Lady Grey film… Don’t get me wrong, it’s a film I like a lot but it seems to have increased in price lately to the point where I might as well buy (my preferred) Ilford HP5 Plus!

Railways and shadows… two things guaranteed to attract my lens! 😁

Howe Lane Crossing in Goxhill is on the railway line that runs from Barton-upon-Humber to Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire and with only one one train every two hours it definitely isn’t the busiest crossing in the country!

This bridge carrying the A52 over the Erewash Canal provided some much needed shade during a sunny September stroll along the towpath.

The stretch of A52 linking Derby to Nottingham was named Brian Clough Way in 2005 in honour of the legendary footballer who managed both Derby County (1967-1973) and Nottingham Forest (1975-1993).

Pentax MZ-M, Pentax-A 50mm f/2 – 1/125s, f8, – Ilford XP2 Super rated at ISO 320

This roll of Ilford XP2 Super has been knocking around in my desk drawer for quite some time… I knew it was partially exposed but couldn’t remember how many shots I’d taken on it.

One!

Taken during a ‘Photography Friday’ outing with Rachel in January 2018! Film loaded, first shot taken, camera died! (a different Pentax MZ-M from the one I’ve posted pics from recently).

The Midland Railway (MR) footbridge at Whatstandwell station is still used daily and was constructed by Andrew Handyside & Co. Ltd. of Derby as long ago as 1894!

An image from another roll of film that’s been lurking in a camera since last year…

I paid a couple of visits to Berwick-upon-Tweed last year and it’s a place I could easily spend a lot more time in.

These chimney stacks were photographed during a stroll around the town walls (and before a pint in the fantastic Curfew Micropub!)
