WHAT NO PIXELS?

CLICK THOSE PICS ……NO NASTY LITTLE SQUARES, JUST LOVELY CRUNCHY GRAIN.

After my visit to Birminghams ‘Cube’ last week, I went for a bit of a fotographic filmic firtle around the surrounding area. The roll of film in my dusty old Ricoh XRX still had a few frames to go, and it seemed a shame not to crack them off.

Consequently, the resulting post is all a little random… BUT…Given that I’m on a steepish re-learning curve regarding actual film, remote exposure metering, manual focussing and all of the other arcane skills involved in using ancient equipment, it was all good experience.

To recap…Ricoh XRX manual SLR (with knackered meter), ‘Leningrad’ hand-held light meter, Sigma 18-70mm wide-angle zoom, Ilford XP2 Black and White film. Negatives processed at a high street lab and subsequently scanned on my Epson V600.

      Would you believe that cycle graveyard shot is actually the roof of a barge?
      The cross was sticking out of a knackered potted plant surrounded by beer bottles and the bike was chained to a tarpaulin covered pallet.
      Barges ain’t always picturesque!

      Hey there, sorry for the delayed reply. 🙂
      Thank you so much, that is really kind.
      I think my use of film has improved a little since the post you commented on…I’m certainly enjoying using it.
      🙂
