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…

The Wheatfields 2017, Fuji Superia X-TRA 400

This is the only roll I shot on the Mamiya C220 on our trip to the UK this year.

The wheatfields around Clanfield were looking spectacular. The blackberry blossoms were just starting to appear as well (I love the blackberry blossoms). The last 2 pitchas were taken on the last day of our holiday to Thailand in January.

I decided to upload the entire roll for fun and so I can use the “entire roll” tag again and add another post to that series.

The film expired in 2012. I really love Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 in 120. It seems to hold up very well when it’s expired. Such a shame it was discontinued. I recently found some on taobao – and bought quite a bit.
