Sunday afternoon

I took this shot back in 2013 on warm autumnal day. Taken at Leybourne Lakes Country Park in England, this image for me summed up this lazy afternoon and was one of the pictures at the start of my return to film photography.

Rise

Another image from Christmas day. I’d never had so much fun on a Christmas morning, the light was perfection, if only everyday was the same. Taken at Barton’s Point Coastal Park, England.

Not something I would normally publish, but I look at this image the more interesting I find this picture. Shot on an overcast morning on Minster beach, England. Annoyingly in the distance I could see Southend across the estuary was lit up by sunshine, but maybe the flat light is the why this image works for me.

For some strange reason which I just cannot explain, the horizon doesn’t look level but if you go to crop the picture and bring the crop line down the horizon is straight.

Taken using sunny 16 rule I think the image was a stop or two underexposed. Shot on a old Soviet Fed 2 rangefinder Circ 1959 with 52mm Industar lens on Ilford FP5 film.

Happy New Year to you all.

The Modeller

While on my usual Sunday morning walk past the Bartons Coastal Park Cafe, England, the model racing club where getting their yachts ready. I noticed this gentlemen preparing a rather lovely model of a old style two masted Schooner, which quite sometime to assemble and prepare ready for sailing. He seemed quite happy for me to take pictures or was so engrossed with his model was completely unaware of the ten or more shots I took of him and his model boat.
