StoneHenge (Wet Plate)

Stonehenge. (Wet plate)

You’ve heard no doubt “Re-Work Wednesday”. Well this is “Try again Tuesday” This is a shot I took at Stonehenge in 2011. Taken with my Leica MP with a Nikkor 20mm mounted via a Novoflex LeiNik converter. I used Fuji Reala film and the basis of this shot is a 1 hour lab scan. I’ve used a wet plate filter in Analog Efex Pro to achieve the effect.

Bored on a Bus Trip

 

Bus Trip

 

While on a long bus trip in Germany,the traffic was very heavy. We were in all around 2 hours behind our plan. So I used the time to try out my Leica M9-P with the Novoflex LeiNik adapter and, my Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 lens. I Chose a 21 mm lens from the lens recognition menu on the M9-P .

You can see the same setup on my Leica MP HERE

Two years ago I visited Stonehenge. I’ve been there many times. I used to go to school in the local village way back in the 70’s. If you visit during normal hours it’s difficult to get shots without people in them. In this case I decided to make at least one part of the composition. I noticed an Artist drawing the Henge. So with my 20mm Nikkor on my Leica MP I took this

Car Cemetery II

Todays shot: This I shot on my trusty F4s with my Nikkor 20mm.
The film I used was Rollei RPX400 which is new to me. I used Caffenol C-L Semi-stand for 55mins with gentle inversions at 2,4,8,16 and,32 mins. Which gave a much better result than the 70mins I tried before(Thanks Eirik) .
This shot is my fav of the day so far. I just love the way the tree has grown through the car. The Car looks quite sad as if it’s pleading for help to remove it .
Have a great weekend :0)

One of my favourite subjects besides people.I love to photograph dereliction and abandoned places and things or Urban exploration as it is better known.
This is one of my favourites from a series I did over two visits to a local abandoned psychiatric hospital. I’ll share some more soon.
Picture wise this was taken with a tripod mounted Leica MP with a 20mm Nikkor 20mm lens via a Novoflex adapter using Ilford XP2 .The negative was scanned on my Epson V700
