Fujica GW690 + Y15 yellow filter – 1/250s, f11, – Kodak T-Max 400

Yet another Fujica GW690/Kodak T-Max 400/Y15 filter image from last year’s Scottish holiday…

I really can’t wait to visit Scotland again and my fingers are tightly crossed that the trip I’ve got booked for later this year will be able to go ahead…

An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ trip out with Rachel… This patch of woodland can be found to the north of the wonderfully named ‘Great Pond of Stubbing’ near Chesterfield in Derbyshire and we used a brief break in the rainy weather during half-term to explore it. It’s definitely a location we’ll be revisiting!

Monochrome Monday… Spiral staircase

I’ve been developing film again… a roll of Kodak T-Max 400 that had been hanging around for a couple of weeks until I plucked up the courage to wrestle it into a developing tank (I find 120 film so much more fiddly to feed onto a spiral than 35mm).

I’m chuffed to bits with the results, especially considering the grotty weather the film was shot in on New Year’s Day!

Another Fujica GW690/Kodak T-Max 400/Y15 filter image from last year’s Scottish holiday…

Taken during a gentle stroll around the village between a full Scottish breakfast and a lunchtime pint at The Steam Packet Inn… Now that’s a holiday!

Finally got around to scanning the films from my recent trip to the Isle of Whithorn!

Just before the trip I invested in a Tiffen Y15 yellow filter for the Fujica GW 690 that I’ve (still… thanks James!) got on loan and it stayed on the camera all week.

I’m not sure, but this might have been my first time shooting Kodak T-Max 400… If so, why haven’t I used it sooner? I love the combination of this film and filter!
