Snow stopper

I promise that this will be the last of the fed2 snow photographs. There is a new camera on it’s way to the lodge, it’s medium format and older than anything I have tried before. Fed2b with Industar26m, Kodak BWcn400 -> Lightroom4 -> Topaz B&W Effects (for a bit of a contrast hike and a […]

Frozen

Another shot from one of this winter’s snowfalls. This is Acton, a small park behind my office.  The camera used was the fed2 with a period correct industar 26m lens, (the focus tab version). Film was Kodak BW400cn, I think I am leaning towards the Kodak as my favoured c41 process B&W stock.

A Cold and Snowy Night in Woolwich

More snow photo’s from General Gordon Square. Woolwich is trying to improve. It almost seems like an organic attempt to step out of Greenwich’s shadow and prove that it could be nice if people would just give it a chance. Maybe that is it; Woolwich isn’t that ugly now, it just looks ugly when compared […]

Bench

Woolwich is a funny place. For such a multicultural part of London to have it’s central  main square named after General Gordon of Khartoum is just weird. It’s even odder that LBG decided that the best way to refurbish the square was to put a BBC sponsored TV screen in the middle and sculpt the rest […]

Snowblind

Earlier in the year we had snow. I grabbed my fed and dashed out of the office to a copse nearby for some xp2 fun.  

The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day

That’s my Mother and my son. Fed2b, Industar26m, BW400cn

Dawn in Woolwich

I commute a long way everyday, Plumstead to Chiswick. One of the few privileges of being out at 7am is the solitude, that and the sunrises. Fed2b, IndustratI61, Kodak Bw400cn, Contrast tweak in Lightroom and a simulated grad filter to bring out the clouds in the sky.

Jan Portrait: What, Why?

I have decided on two projects for this year. Firstly I am going to ” Be happier “, That one is simple: I am going to stop getting stressed about the things I can’t change and concentrate on the things I can change. So far so good on this. Secondly I am going to push […]

More Soviet Glass

  More glass arrived recently. It’s an Industar 50, not exactly exciting really. Apparently these non collapsing 50’s are optically similar to the collapsing 50’s found on the fed1. It’s seized solid, and will be the first lens stripped and lubricated, (just as soon as I find my jewelers screwdriver set).
