Shot before the current curfew, on a dull overcast day, this lady was taking her Pomeranian puppy for his first outing at Minster Leas, Isle of Sheppey, England. Wasn’t happy with first image I uploaded yesterday, so with a little dodging and burning in Gimp the result I’m pleased with. To tell the truth I don’t like messing around with my pictures too much, some might say I’m lazy but if it’s not right, I scrap the image.
Leica M3, Summicron 50mm f/2 Duel range on Ilford HP5 plus expired 2006 from my father’s old stock in his fridge and push one stop.
Hope everyone keeping well out there.
While out with the dog before the current curfew, I heard children playing on the beach below the seawall. It was then I noticed the two scooters and a child’s bike resting against the railings.
Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 50mm f/2 and shot on Fomapan 100 @ 800 ISO using sunny sixteen rule at Minster seafront, Kent England.
Minster Leas beach huts, Minster, Kent England. Shot on a very gloomy, windy and wet Sunday morning in February. The sun was trying to break though but didn’t quite manage it. I just love the effect this film gives when it’s pushed three stops.
Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and shot on Fomapan 100 Classic film @ 800 ISO with a yellow B&W filter.

After shooting my image ‘Only the Bones‘ you can see some old posts in the background which I think maybe part of an old pier or even for a floating pontoon as these old structures are some eight feet in height. Maybe the old barges where part of the pier, who knows?

As many of you know my work, I very rarely shoot colour film. So when I said to my wife I’m going to shoot some autumn pictures last Sunday, a voice came from the other room ”you are going to use colour?” So frantically looking in my photography fridge upstairs, luckily for me there was one last roll of Agfa Vista 200 colour film left, dated October 2018… Phew.
This shot hasn’t really got much in the way of autumn colour but I liked the late afternoon light and shadows across the cemetery. Only in post processing on the computer did I notice the grave in the foreground, the foot stone is propped up with white bricks!

View one morning over the Military canal, Isle of Sheppey, England. I like this shot for the sky and reflection, maybe I should have moved over more to the right for the composition to get the tree further into the image. Somehow I just could not get the picture to look right.
