Fujifilm DL-270 Zoom, Fujifilm Super-EBC Fujinon 35-70mm at 70mm, Fuji Superia 400

I’m not over fond of zoom lens compact/point & shoot cameras but the Fujifilm DL-270 Zoom seems fairly capable. Not bad for a fiver!

The Canon EOS 30/EF 40mm f/2.8 STM combo is probably my favourite camera for snapshots at the moment, I’ve used it quite a bit this summer…

Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 7½ mins at 20°c.

In a recent post about infrared photography I mentioned a roll of Adox HR-50 that was waiting to be developed… this is the first edited image from that roll…

Again, nothing complicated on the settings front, aperture priority automatic, hyperfocal focusing and +1 stop exposure compensation (in this particular instance…)

I’m definitely going to be experimenting further with infrared!

The recent hot weather has seen me dabbling in infrared photography, both with film and digital.

The roll of Adox HR-50 awaits developing but this image was taken with my Fujifilm X-E4, 16mm lens and a Hoya R72 filter.

Nothing complicated on the settings front, aperture priority automatic and the monochrome+red filter…

An image from a wander around Matlock Bath in June. The 1864ft long gondola lift links the spa town Matlock Bath with the Heights of Abraham, a hilltop park on top of Masson Hill.

The heights are named after a supposed resemblance to the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Heights of Abraham, in Quebec, Canada, where James Wolfe died in battle.

Last Friday I had a gentle stroll around Chester Green in Derby and crossed the River Derwent on this bridge.

Known as ‘Handyside Bridge’ it originally carried the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension of the Great Northern Railway and was built in 1878 by local engineers Andrew Handyside and Company.

The riveted wrought iron structure saw its last train in May 1968 (when the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension closed) and was converted to a footbridge in 1976.
