Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 18-135mm f3.5~5.6 R LM OIS WR at 52mm, 1/50s, f5, ISO 3200

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was the seaside town of Sheringham in Norfolk.

I can’t remember where we were staying but this image was definitely taken whilst wandering to or from the pub (probably the Windham Arms… they serve an excellent pint!)

Monochrome Monday… Metro sign, Paris

Nikon F90X Pro, Sigma 28~200mm f/3.8-5.6 DL Macro – Ilford Delta 400 rated at ISO 320

The more I play with the Negative Lab Pro plugin for Lightroom the more impressed I am with it… the results from DSLR digitisation are far better than those from either my flatbed or film scanners.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Another image from a recent wander around Derby… I don’t know how long it is since W.E. Savage & Son ceased trading but the shop has been empty for at least 12 years!

Square Saturday… Milepost 22, C&HPR

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/60s, f11, – Kodak T-Max 400
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

I’m currently trying out a Mamiya C330 twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera and this image is from the second roll of film I’ve put through it.

It’s a heavy beast but incredibly nice to use, and (as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before) I love the square format!

This is milepost 22 on what was the Cromford & High Peak Railway (C&HPR) in Derbyshire, now the High Peak Trail.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
