Clanfield Meadow, Pentax PC35AF, Agfa Vista Plus

Chu Chu with our recently acquired Kodak Brownie Six 20 Model E. I managed to run a roll of film through the Brownie the same day – as the name would suggest it takes 620 roll film but will take 120 with some Matty “modification”.

Nikon FM2 / Fuji Pro 400H / 135mm

I took this photo of my lovely Chu Chu using the 135mm. I don’t use it much and I took to England in the summer because I had an idea for a photo but I didn’t go to the location where I wanted to take the photo I had the idea for – boo.

This was taken in Clanfield Meadow. The little white flag is a boundary marker – we were watching my nephew play cricket.

Emily is holding the Olympus XA – she loves that little camera.

Clanfield Meadow, Ferrania Solaris 100

Some photos taken in Clanfield Meadow which is directly opposite my mum’s house. It’s a really lovely, peaceful spot. I used to wander through here with a camera when I lived at home with mum and dad.

This is the first roll of film I’ve shot with the nikkor 50mm f/1.2 – I’m still learning its ways. This was also the first time I’d shot Ferrania Solaris as well. It hasn’t been made for a few years now and is hard to get hold of. I recently found some online so decided to buy a few rolls.

I quite like it and it seems to have aged fairly well. I figured it’s probably expired by at least 5 or 6 years so shot it between 1 and 2 stops over. It’s hard to say exactly because the meter on my FM2 is broken and I sometimes forget my handheld light meter so I have to guess exposure or use sunny 16. I think it’s lost a bit of latitude as the whites seem noticeably over-exposed. I’m happy to have got the chance to shot some ferrania though.

Cricket, Clanfield Meadow, Ferrania Solaris 100

Missed focus with the new Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 ais again.

We were watching my nephew play cricket on Clanfield Meadow when I took this pitcha. After that we went to the Rising Sun with my mum, my sister and her husband and James my nephew. I drank 2 pints of HSB. What a lovely evening.
