It’s raining today. I was supposed to be doing other things . However those were outside. Still after wondering what I should use my time on I found my daughters sandals on a shelf by the window. They made a great subject for my new camera’s macro function. This shot was taken handheld and at ISO1600
I’m very pleased with the result so I thought I’d share it with you dear reader.

I must admit it has been a while since I last posted anything here. However there are too many reasons to go into at this time.The main thing is I will try and post at least one shot a week for you to see. Like this one taken at an art gallery not too far from where I live. The camera was very new at the time and this is the one shot that convinced me that my decision was the right one,
The work is called Silent Studio the artist is Mark Manders
One of the shots from my recent trip to Denmark. I choose to shoot with my Hasselblad 203FE and 80 mm lens. I took along some T-Max 400 asa and shot off four rolls in the short time I had.
The film was developed in T-max soup for 6mins and 45 secs at 20°C. The Negatives were scanned using my Epson V700 and Betterscanning.com holder.
