Some more films back from the lab today… This is another image from the Fujica GW 690 that I’ve currently got on loan and it’s on my first roll of Bergger Pancro 400 film.

It’s difficult to judge from just eight shots but the results from this film are quite soft (contrast-wise) which isn’t something I’m particularly used to… I’m pleased with the images though and will order a couple more rolls to experiment with.

Tranquillity… a 60ft long narrow boat, moored on the Trent & Mersey Canal near Keepers Lock at Fradley Junction.

A brisk morning stroll and a spot of ‘gongoozling’ before the first outdoor pub lunch of the year (and a couple of pints of Everards Tiger) at The Swan.

Monochrome Monday… Vintage section

Fujica GW690 – 1/60s, f8, – JCH Street Pan rated at ISO 800

My first roll of JCH Street Pan film in 120 format. I’m not sure what went wrong but the negatives are very thin indeed… Did I forget to mark the roll for push-processing when I sent it to the lab?

This is part of the vintage section in the Sue Ryder charity shop on Goodramgate in York. They had an assortment of photographic bits and bobs when I called in before Christmas but the only thing I bought was a Sporran!
