Destinations

I don’t normally take pictures of just the sky, but this stuck me because of the amount of passenger airliner vapour trails criss-crossing above me forming a pattern of intersecting lines across from the Cumulus into the Cirrus clouds. Might of even been better in colour, but black and white film was loaded at the time.

Taken over Barton’s Point, Isle of Sheppey, England with my Leica M4-2, Summicron 50mm f/2 on Fomapan 100 Classic film rated at 400, plus a yellow B&W filter.

Pinecones

Taken at the house we were staying at in Saint Germain de Montgommery, France. This tree is in the grounds, and must be some 60-70 foot tall. Looking up, I liked the morning sunlight catching the cones.

Charlie

This is my dog Charlie who’s now a year old. I took this picture in the house we stayed at in Vimoutiers, France. I don’t often shoot colour film, mainly because of the subjects I like to take pictures of tend to lend themselves to black and white images really.

Sunlight was coming from the window behind the sofa over his head, and more from the patio doors opposite. The light reading was not easy with my Weston meter to get this shot, so I took the reading from the sofa it self, which is a brown leather and out of direct light. Charlie is a not pure black like when he was a puppy in the first image ‘Welcome’ his coat is more a smoky grey colour now so the image of him looks a little washed out with the light coming from behind, although I am very pleased with the result of the picture.
