I’m away the next fortnight on my holidays so I will have to upload an older image this week. This is ”Lizzy” a local cat to me who I spotted peering though a gate with a glaring look. She is fearless, standing up to anything or anyone, having seen me, my camera and my dog, I took the shot and made a hasty retreat!
I make a mistake by overdeveloping this roll of film by forgetting to take into account the Kodak D76 developer temperature, which was 24°C.
Despite this, I think it this image works well.
Taken with a Nikon F80, (alas I have no more, died and went to camera heaven) the lens was a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D on Fomapan 100 Classic film.
Taken at Dungeness, England. This location is a magnet for photographers from all over because of its bleak and barren landscapes. This is one of the last few old fishing boat hulks stilling remaining on the beach.

Developed in Kodak D76 1:1 for 12.5 minutes.
Sitting waiting for wife at Sheerness railway station last summer, I noticed the design of the old benches opposite the station. Unimaginative title I know, but fun all the same.

Don’t often do still life photography very much now, but when my wife brought home this lovely old typewriter from her mother’s, I just had do something on black and white film. After some online research I discovered this Imperial typewriter dates from the year 1942, complete with it’s original case and is still in full working order.

F/2.8 Di on Fomapan 100 Classic film. Mounted on my Manfrotto 144, lighting from natural light from a nearby window and I used a timed exposure of 4 seconds at f/22. Film developed in Kodak D76 for 9 minutes at 20ºc
I don’t normally take portraits, but this image I am very pleased with. This is my mother in law, now in her eighties, a great grandmother and I’m sure you will agree she makes a fine black and white portrait picture.
I took this shot hand held with just natural daylight from the nearby window.
Taken in July 2016 on a Nikon FE, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 Ai on Fomapan 400 Action film, developed in Kodak D76 for 12.5 minutes at 20ºc.
Taken last spring at Barton’s Point Coastal Park, Sheerness, England. These Poodles were waiting for their other owner to appear from the café.

Taken last year in one of the many alleyways of Sheerness, England. Nikon FE, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 Ai on Fomapan 100 Classic and developed in Kodak D76
This image came about because of a wrong exposure but having seen the image I decided that was worth using. I can’t even remember where I took the picture. I know it was in December 2017 and taken on the Isle of Sheppey, England.
My wife has since reminded me I took this shot at Bartons Point Coastal Park.
Nikon FE, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 Ai on Fomapan 400 with a yellow Photax filter.
The Bure Valley Railway is a 15 inch (38 cm) minimum gauge heritage railway in Norfolk, England. The railway runs from Wroxham to Aylsham and is Norfolk’s longest railway of less than standard gauge.
Always looking for a picture I noticed the reflection of the people queuing for the next train in the carriage windows opposite.
Taken last July on a Nikon FE with a Nikkor 28mm F2.8 Ai lens on Fomapan 100 Classic and developed in Kodak D76 for 9 minutes.
And just one more today,
A tongue-in-cheek street image as we Brits seem to be always getting our vehicles stuck in the snow and ice. Shot in Sheerness, England at the end of March this year.
