Slide film Sunday… ‘MISS PATTIE’

We’ve not had a ‘Slide Film Sunday’ in a while have we?

The fishing boat E58 MISS PATTIE was photographed at Lyme Regis in September 2003 and as usual the slide surfaced while I was looking for something else entirely!

Slide film Sunday… 1954 Chevrolet Bel-Air on Rollei Variochrome

A little while ago I was sent a couple of rolls of Rollei Variochrome slide film to play with and to say I’m not impressed with the results are a massive understatement!

One roll was exposed at a classic car rally on a bright autumn day and although I didn’t have high hopes I did at least have some hopes of decent images… I mostly bracketed one stop either way of the meter reading and the above image is the ‘best’ of the lot!

The images are dull, lifeless, very grainy and not one is ‘correctly’ exposed and all these problems seem to have been noted by pretty much everyone who’s tried this film… I’m definitely in no hurry to expose the second roll!

Slide Film Sunday… The Upper Room by Colin Wilbourn

The Upper Room by Colin Wilbourn-20000226The Upper Room by Colin Wilbourn
Nikon F90X Pro, Sigma 28~200mm f/3.8-5.6 DL Macro – Fujichrome

A couple of weeks ago I posted an image of Colin Wilbourn’s Stone Stair Carpet here and when browsing the artist’s website I discovered I’d photographed another of his creations in Durham back in February 2000.

The Upper Room was created from 13 elm trunks, arranged on the bank of the River Wear where they had grown. From most viewpoints they made little sense but at one end of the ‘grove’ there was a seat in a hollowed out trunk and from this seat the image of the empty room, complete with the remains of the meal that had taken place there became visible.

Eventually the wood deteriorated and the sculpture was dismantled…

My first visit to Paris (on honeymoon no less) was when I started to make a conscious effort to include people in my images, the couple chatting on the river bank really making this image for me…

Slide Film Sunday… Little Ruddington

An image from September 1999 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

And an image that made me chuckle when I spotted it whilst looking for something else entirely!

‘Little Ruddington’ is a station on the miniature railway at what was then the Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre (now the Nottingham Heritage Railway) and I just liked the combination of sign and scaled down London & North Eastern Railway class A2 4-6-2 steam locomotive 60532 ‘BLUE PETER’ (7.25 inch gauge I think).

An image from November 2003 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

Yet again I’ve no notes as to the camera or film used for the above pic but I’m reasonably sure it was taken using a Nikon F75, AF NIKKOR 24-85mm f/2.8-4D and Fujichrome Sensia film.

This inscription could (can?) be found atop a gate post in the Yorkshire village of Wensley and is believed to have been made during World War Two by a work party from one of the nearby prisoner of war camps.
