The tables have turned at home. Where I used to buy the latest tech and hand the old stuff down to my kids, I now get their old stuff. I’m not complaining, I’ve just scored an iPhone 6s Plus off my youngest 😄. I’ve just come from a British Leyland car show, I shot some film in my Olympus Pen ee3 (it takes a while to use all 72 exposures) but I also played with the phone. Looking around the cars bought back a lot of good memories especially the BMC 1100s. My Morris is “asleep” in the garage awaiting a bit of work.
A few years ago I was given a beautiful book featuring the autochromes of Albert Kahn and his “operators” (some examples here. Sorry, website en francais). I found these images utterly fascinating, and was quite excited when Hipstamatic released an autochrome combo. I gave it a go today. I quite like the look, though I think it is more suited to photographing people than things. Lumiere lens plus A-Type plate film combo.
Up close and personal today with a couple of older fire appliances at Milton Keynes museum. Polamatic Spectra fauxlaroids.
As part of the annual free Heritage Days scheme we went to Bletchley Park (home of the codebreakers) for the first time today in a long time. A huge amount of money has been spent on refurbishments, most of the old decayed stuff has gone now. There are still some interesting bits though if you mooch around 😀.
I just rescued some half dead dahlias from B&Q. Polamatic type 80 fauxlaroid.
Fire station somewhere in Norfolk, I really should keep better notes. And yet I can remember it was shot on a Canon Eos 33 with a Lensbaby Muse, weird.
I used up the last three shots on a roll of poundshop film in my front garden. I am a tiny budget gardener, I rescue all the "dead twig" bargains in supermarkets, garden centres and diy stores. This clematis shines every year, I love it. Canon EOS 3000n, Lensbaby Composer, Agfa Vista 200 home processed.
