Railways and shadows… two things guaranteed to attract my lens! 😁
Howe Lane Crossing in Goxhill is on the railway line that runs from Barton-upon-Humber to Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire and with only one one train every two hours it definitely isn’t the busiest crossing in the country!

Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole + ND8 filter, 25s, f167 – Rollei RPX 100
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 11 mins at 20°c.
An image from the second roll of film through my Ondu 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera…
I’m still getting to grips with how wide an angle of view this camera has, the 25mm focal length of the Ondu pinhole has roughly the equivalent angle of view of a 14mm lens on 35mm or full-frame digital!

Grey Seal pup, November 2019
Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 55-200mm f3.5~4.8 R LM OIS at 116mm, 1/125s, f9, ISO 640
This week’s ‘Photography Friday’ saw Rachel and I visit Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire coast to see the Grey Seals (Halichoerus grypus) that breed (and give birth to their pups) there every year between October and December.
The area is a salt marsh, used by the Royal Air Force as a bombing range but it is also home to a staggering 30% of the worldwide Grey Seal population!
The public viewing area is managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and the volunteer wardens do a fantastic job of keeping both seals and visitors safe, the above image was captured from well behind the fencing that separates the two!

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800
While I’m eagerly awaiting the postie rattling the letter box with an envelope of negatives from AgLab (an envelope that should include two rolls from my charity shop find Diana+), I thought I’d post another image from my first roll with said camera…
Lots more vignetting on this pic and I can only assume that this is down to the wider aperture (the ‘cloudy’ setting) that I used for this, the first shot on the roll.

The Sound Tower, Chapel Six Marshes
Nikon FA, Nikkor 85mm f/2 AI-S – 1/125s, f11, – CineStill BwXX rated at ISO 250
The Sound Tower is part of The Structures on the Edge (SOTE) project, a fascinating series of installations on the Lincolnshire coast.
Designed by R Cannon and M Springett, London, the tower is ‘a device that focuses people’s senses and amplifies the windy nature of the site.’
I’ve no idea what the pipes in the foreground are for…
