Nikon F3HP, Zoom-NIKKOR 35-70mm f/3.5 Ai-S at 70mm, 1/125s, f11 – Kentmere Pan 400
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 12 mins at 20°c.

This rather sorry specimen was sharing its resting place with an Auston A35, a Mazda RX-8 and an assortment of other, unidentifiable vehicles of indeterminate age.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Monochrome Monday… St Nicholas’ Church, High Bradfield

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/60s, f11, – Ilford Ortho Plus
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 10½ mins at 20°c.

After yesterday’s post on a film failure I thought I’d post something more positive today… the first image from my first roll of Ilford Ortho Plus.

Ilford say this film is ideally suited to landscape photography and I can’t really argue with that recommendation…

Another image from Expired Film Day 2022.

Results from the second roll of Fuji Provia RDP II 100 (that expired in 1998) aren’t as good as from the first but they’re still much better than I was expecting!

An image from Expired Film Day 2022.

A few months ago a pal (Hi Simon!) gave me a quantity of Fuji Provia RDP II 100 and Velvia RVP 50 slide film that had all expired in 1997 or 1998. A bit of research suggested exposing it at box speed and cross my fingers for reasonable results.

The original slides have a colour cast and are a little underexposed but nothing a little tweak in Lightroom couldn’t sort out!

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the seaside town of Bridlington in Yorkshire.

It’s a town I never get bored with visiting and I’m hoping to visit again in June for Race the Waves ’22
