Loose Valley, Cave Hill Mill Pond, Maidstone. Father and his young children trying to feed the ducks last autumn. I was taken by the reflection and the light though the trees, made for a wonderful moment composed, the only fly in the ointment is the little girls hat which try as I might on a computer at lease I just could not get the detail to burn in. Might a different story in a darkroom!
Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 50mm f/2, with a yellow B&W filter and shot on Kodak Tri-X film rated at ISO 800.
Tyler’s Cottage in Loose Valley, Maidstone, England.
The sunlight was just catching the building and the fur tree to my left, highlighting the scene between the clouds. Unfortunately, I did lose some of the detail from house because of the sunlight, which amazed me how burn’t out it was despite metering for white of the building. On the plus side with this image turned out using the trees to hid the ugly modern aerial and satellite dish which would otherwise spoil the scene.

Sheerness Holiday Park, Isle of Sheppey, England on a very still morning, an hour after dawn. The Military Canal water was like a mirror, which was lucky as moments later after I’d taken the image a couple of Mute swans came to land.
Leica M3, Summicron 50mm f/2 with a B&W yellow filter and shot on Fomapan 100 film pushed to a ISO of 400.
Aure river, Bayeux, France. I saw these two boats, how you get to them, who knows… maybe swim?
Made for nice picture any how.

Whitstable high street, England. I spotted this guy eating chips with his dog outside this takeaway and liked the reflection of him and his dog. Having seen the contact sheet it looks like he’s shouting at someone in the shop when in fact he was eating.
When I scanned the picture, it was only then noticed I’d captured this couple I had not seen in the background reflection cuddling their small dog.

Taken in 2016 on the approach to Dungeness Station on the R.H.& D.R. (Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway) narrow gauge railway, England.
Nikon F80, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D on Fomapan 100 Classic film which incidentally, I managed to over develop by a stop.
I walk past this scene most weekends with my dog, but somehow I could never get it to look quite right. This is the back view of the ‘Seabreeze’ Caravan Park, Sheerness, England.
