winter sun // feb 2019

This is the 2nd roll of film, I’ve put through my dad’s old 1986 Chinon CP-7m. The first was one was a bit of bust, because I was just messing about, and the pictures came out so overexposed I thought the camera might actually be broken. This time, to eliminate “user error”, I kept it safely in “P” mode and got some not too shabby results. It’s a brick of a thing to carry around, but I think I’ll be using it more from now on. Film on this occasion was my favourite Kodak 400 Gold. Slightly grainy, but safer in the changeable light conditions in London, I feel. Damn, I love the winter sun.

split cam / film 1

Results from recent experimenting with a new toy cam I acquired recently. Very basic plastic camera called “split cam”. I bought mine at the Photographer’s Gallery in London for £7, but I’ve seen them go for as much as £30 on “gifts” sites. Don’t be a dummy and pay £30. I was too impatient to fill a whole roll before developing. I’m pretty pleased with the initial results. Let me know what you guys think. Do more?

Kensal Green: X-Pro

The sun was out today in London, so I decided to head out for a walk with my Lumix, so I can continue to get to grips with it. I’ve seen it from the train a few times, passing Kensal Green, so decided to finally hop of the train here to check out Kensal Green cemetary. I also wanted to check out an exhibition at the Dissenters’ Gallery. There are lots of interesting textures and angles and lots of cool greenery and birds here; a surprisingly nice and interesting place for a walk. I didn’t find it depressing, but I also didn’t spend much time reading messages on gravestones. I just enjoyed the oldness, the greeness and the general tranquility. I never managed to find the gallery, hidden somewhere on the grounds, but it was worth the visit anyway. Here’s a few ivy-heavy cross-proccessed (x-pro) shots I took:
