Tenterden, England. 2022

Although this was shot on a previous roll of Kodak Pro Image film, it might be one of the last roll of colour film I shot. Ever since Kodak’s announcement of a 20% price increase on film I’m beginning to doubt whether or not the use of colour is sustainable. You only have to Google colour film prices. Last pack of 5 Pro Image I purchased was £26.00, now anywhere from £37 to £42 RRP. With current prices and the added development cost, which for me is working out at £13 to £14 per roll. Seems silly when I have a digital Leica M-P (Typ240) sitting at home.

On a side note, I also noticed the price of a bulk 30M roll of Fomapan 100 has gone up. I last paid £42, which works out at £2.10 per roll for twenty 36 exposure films. Now listed online between £58 to £60.

Browsing windows

For the foreseeable future street photography not only looks different but I’m find more difficult with social distancing. You move in for the shot and because people are now more aware of someone standing closer to them, I found they tend to move out the way or look round at you.

Street corner portrait

Don’t normal do self portraits but with this street shot looking though the viewfinder, I saw the fat man with his dog and a Leica camera. At the same time I also viewed the image within the picture which made for something a little different with this self portrait I had not seen taken by other photographers before.

The Old Bicycle

This beautiful old bicycle can be found in Rue des Lingots, Honfleur, France. It’s parked outside a small C’afe called ‘Le Temps Des Cerises’ and if you look up online you’ll find it has been photographed many times before I believe, so this is my take on this street scene.
