This is another shot from that forgotten roll. I think the light leaks add to the shot.

Todays Shot shows that you don’t have to travel any great distance to get a great shot. I took this at the kitchen table. My wife doing the crossword. What makes this shot for me is the light and the slight movement as she raises the mug.
The everyday occurrences become art (If you will excuse the pretentiousness)

I was writing an update to me gear page and looking at some shots I took with my FM2. This is one of my favs. I thought I’d share with you.

This is a shot I took at a miners strike demo in London back in the eighties. Policemen and women forming a corden before the march arrives .I love the way he has his hand on the policewoman just like he is caught in an embarrassing moment.I shouted to get the policeman to turn his head and snapped the shot.
I used my Nikon FM2 and a 100mm E lens . Film was Ilford XP2. It’s a fun candid of a serious moment .
This is a trial scan from my new Epson V700. .
