Before Christmas, for a bit of photographic fun I added a roll of revolog Snovlox film to an order from Analogue Wonderland.

Snovlox is a limited edition black and white film with similar effects to revolog’s Volvox film, a colour film that adds bright green dots all over the negative… with Snovlox the dots are white, giving a wintry feel to images.

Snovlox’s base is the excellent Kodak T-MAX 100 and it’s processed as such, giving results such as those you see here.

I’m rather taken with the results from this film and will be buying some more while it’s still on sale (it’s only available between October and March). I’ve also got a couple of other revolog films in stock; Kolor and Streak and am looking forward to trying them both soon…

I’m having trouble sleeping tonight so rummaging through some images from a couple of years ago that haven’t yet seen the light of day…

This shot comes from a bitterly cold walk around the East Sussex town of Lewes in February 2017, I just liked the soft colours and the regimented shapes of these two doors.

Although the door numbers here are a very similar style I’ve often wondered about photographing all the different ways in which house numbers are displayed, ancient and modern, simple or elaborate…

Off to see the Godsons today… a couple of months ago we all wandered around Brighton together and the only camera I carried with me was the tiny Olympus XA that was kindly gifted to me in the first Emulsive ‘Secret Santa’.

Today’s camera of choice is the equally tiny half-frame Olympus Pen EE-2.
