Slide Film Sunday… More from Paris

Au Lapin Agile Cabaret, Septembre 2000Au Lapin Agile Cabaret, Septembre 2000

Another couple of honeymoon images for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

Au Lapin Agile (the agile rabbit) is a legendary cabaret venue in Montmartre, Paris, just around the corner from…

La Maison Rose, Septembre 2000La Maison Rose, Septembre 2000

La Maison Rose (the pink house) is a wonderful little restaurant, originally owned by the Catalan painter Ramon Pichot (1871-1925) and his wife Germaine Gargallo (1880-1948) who was an artist’s model and lover of Picasso for many years.

An image from September 2000 for today’s ‘Slide Film Sunday’

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).

Slide Film Sunday… POW ITALIAN

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.

Slide Film Sunday… Bolton Castle, May 2003

Bolton Castle, May 2003Bolton Castle, May 2003

The recent purchase of a used Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter has prompted me to dig out a few of my old slides to tinker with…

I’ve no notes as to the camera or film used for the above pic of Bolton Castle but it’s a pretty good bet it was taken using a Nikon F90X, AF NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED and Fujichrome Sensia film (a combination I used a lot at the time…)

First impressions of the ES-2 are good, it’s well made (as you’d expect from Nikon) and simple to use so expect more ‘Slide Film Sunday’ posts!

An image from Nymans in West Sussex, taken around this time last year…

I really should make notes when photographing gardens, most of them label their plants after all but I believe that these beautiful flowers are some variety of Hellenium, also known as ‘Sneezeweed’.

I’ve splashed out on a few more rolls of Ektachrome but haven’t yet had chance to shoot any of it this summer…

I’ve photographed this cheeky sign that advertises That Little Tea Shop in the Lanes in Brighton a few times but as yet I’ve not sampled said shop’s menu… I really must pop in for tea and cake at some point!
