East Meon, Kodak Portra 160

Some of the pitchas from East Meon, a beautiful little village in Hampshire about 3 miles from Clanfield. It’s a very sleepy and picturesque place, there’s a thousand year old church in the village and a couple of lovely pubs. We had lunch in the Izaak Walton where we had a below average plowman’s and a Bowman’s Ale – I can’t remember which one.

East Meon was mentioned in the Domesday Book and even featured in the English Civil War – the Parliamentarians camped outside the village before the Battle of Cheriton.

During the WWII the Luftwaffe dropped 38 high explosive bombs and approximately 3,500 incendiaries in the Parish – stupidly they only managed to kill a pig.

Uppark House Cafe, Fuji Pro 800Z

We spent another day doing nice things – this time we visited Uppark, and English country house, a National Trust property with a lovely cafe serving cream teas with a huge lawn overlooking the South Downs. Unfortunately is was a bit chilly and it started to rain so we couldn’t sit outside on the lawn – next time.

Southsea, Fuji Pro 800Z

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

The first roll of a batch of Fuji Pro 800Z I found on taobao. Great find and it expired only in 2012. Not sure how it’s been stored – judging by these frames, not particularly well but I’m sure it will be ok in the right conditions. It’s just figuring out what those conditions might be before I run out of the stuff…

Southsea, Konica Industrial 100 [expired]

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Ninth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

This is a roll of Konica film that is packaged in a similar way to the still-in-production Fuji Industrial. There are 3 characters on the box that Chu Chu assured me mean “industrial” and they are the same 3 characters on the fuji boxes so I can only assume that Konica used to make a similar film for industry – I think the films were used in dentistry and surveillance equipment, that sort of thing.

Anyway, it expired years ago and as you can see the colours have gone a bit potty. The blue layer especially…
