A very quick post today as I’m off to Bridlington tonight to see The Red Hot Chilli Pipers perform at the Spa!

Back in March one of mine and Rachel’s ‘Photography Friday’ jaunts coincided with Expired Film Day and these images were taken on a very battered Olympus μ [mju:] – II compact camera that I managed to pick up in a charity shop a few weeks before for a mere £1.95!

I was pleasantly surprised by how well these films performed, especially the Fuji Super G Plus 200 that was 22 years out of date!

Single frame… St Mungo Mural, Glasgow

Last Saturday saw four people undertake a madcap 550 mile round trip to Glasgow so that one of them (hi Mark!) could go to a football match.

Mark’s wife (and my regular ‘Photography Friday’ partner in crime, Rachel), my wife, Joy, and myself had a few hours to explore the city (and have a wee drink or two) but we were all keen to see as much of the city’s Mural Trail as possible.

The above image is of the first mural we found… Painted by Australian artist ‘Smug’ (Sam Bates) in 2016 it depicts St Mungo, Glasgow’s patron saint.

Btw, Rachel’s image of the mural is currently gracing the BBC’s ‘Your pictures of Scotland‘ page!

Square Saturday… Funk

Diana+ – Lomo CN 400

I’m obviously still having problems with loading film into my charity shop find Diana+… I’m also getting too close to my subject matter as most of my shots are far too tightly framed, a problem exacerbated by my dodgy film loading technique.

This shot is OK though, something I spotted during a wander around Cosne-sur-Loire in the Nièvre department in central France.
