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.

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.

From the first roll of a batch of Ferrania Solaris I found on Taobao

Southsea, Konica Industrial 100 [expired]

One of our last days in England and some lovely weather for a drive 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.

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…

Chu Chu, Cafe, Konica Minolta Centuria Super 400

Chu Chu and Matty went for some coffee at Le Pain Quotidien in Wan Chai. Ok coffee in some over-sized cups and a comfy chair. We had some average carrot cake as well. Not bad overall.
