I’ve been away from my blog for a long time. Time,work and other interests have eaten into the time I had. I have however posted once a week to the wonderful Monchromia blog. If you haven’t found it yet follow the link. There are many talented photographers there. It’s all run by the nicest man I’ve never met Joe.
My interests lie mostly in film photography but digital has its place. I shot mostly to convert to black and white as that is what I understand best. you’ll find splashes of colour here but not many.
My aim is at least to post once a week or more. so see out there…
A fishing boat waits patiently for a day out besides a deserted café
The harbour in winter is spookily devoid of people . You see the evidence of them just not the people themselves. I wanted to bring that emptiness into the photos I took.
I think there is always something sad about a boat on land. They just don’t belong.
The nets are ready for a days fishing.
Goliath lies ready and waiting for its next job.
Another shot in the same vain from my recent trip to Denmark. You can see the other I have posted here.
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.
