Single frame… ‘Eyecatching’

Yashica FX-D Quartz, Yashica ML 35mm f/2.8 – Agfa Vista Plus 200

Another sheet of forgotten negatives turned up this week, funnily enough at the same time I decided to give the camera they were shot on another outing.

The Yashica FX-D Quartz is a close relative of the Contax 139 and shares its lens mount, enabling the use of Contax’s superb Carl Zeiss optics but this entire roll of film was shot with the excellent Yashica ML 35mm f/2.8 lens.

This piece of street art (and the building it adorned) are no more, another disused factory knocked down… ‘Eyecatching’ was collaboration between Sheffield artists Rocket 01 and Faunagraphic and other examples of their work are still visible around the city.

Olympus 35RD – 1/60s, f8, – O.O.D. Agfa Vista 200 rated at ISO 100

This classic Ford has featured on here before but this is another shot from the test roll put through a charity shop find Olympus 35RD…

Apart from a couple of frames overlapping the camera seems to be in perfect working order and the F. Zuiko 40mm f/1.7 lens is gorgeous! This camera will be getting a lot more use in 2020!

The car appears to be the ‘Tudor Sedan’ version of the Ford Model A, fitted with a 201 cu in (3.3l) four cylinder engine.

Some more ‘gongoozling’ on a recent Photography Friday outing, this time at Fradley Junction, where the Trent & Mersey and Coventry Canals meet…

It was also warm enough for the first outdoor pub lunch of the year (and a couple of pints of Everards Tiger) at The Swan.
