I can’t explain why this image keeps catching my eye as I scroll through Lightroom, it just does…

Throwback Thursday… London!

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Six years ago it was London during a day out riding the rails with Dad. From memory we were only in London for an hour and a half between trains but I had time for a brief wander out of Euston station and down to West End Cameras then located on Tottenham Court Road.

I couldn’t resist photographing the BT Tower, reflected in the University College Hospitals Education Centre, especially when a London bus sneaked into shot!

Monochrome Monday… Doggy Drinks Station

Nikon FA, NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8P, 1/125s, f11; – Lomography Lady Grey rated at ISO 320
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!

I love the area around Brighton for photography, so much to see, so many characters! Saltdean, a few miles east of central Brighton, is a much quieter place for a Sunday morning stroll though…
