Electioneering, Ferrania Solaris 100

It happened to be that time – most people in the Clanfield / Horndean / Waterlooville area vote either Conservative or Liberal Democrat. I think you have to be solidly behind an ideology to go as far as erecting a sign that displays your political party of choice on it. As for me, as if anyone cares, I don’t base any of my ideas, opinions or my voting habits on an ideology. Election times are most frustrating.

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.
