Monday 2nd July 2018

Already we are into July, and so far it's turning out to be a scorcher, well at least 2 days of it have been and we're due a whole week of it.  I've not been blogging much as have been out and about with my camera and Sophie or Phil most weekends, and this week... Continue Reading →

The 50 Picture Project

Well at last, some sunshine and warm temperatures, and forecast getting warmer for all next week, when I'll be moaning about being too hot.

That blog has evolved into just being about the history and photographs of places, and it seemed a good idea... Continue Reading →

Film Friday

I've got a couple more rolls back from the developers, this time both films shot on the Riva Mini.  I used Kodak Max 400 and Fujifilm Super Extra 400 and have to say the fuji came out much better. Not sure why but the pictures from Kodak max came out very grainy- I could excuse... Continue Reading →
