Religious looking light

Kodak E100 slide film is great at capturing the rather religious looking light that shone in my garden on this day in August.

Summer 2020 on E100

During the summer we did manage to meet up with our family – very carefully with an eye on the virus and attention to social distancing. The sun came out a couple of days and so I thought I’d try out the new Kodak E100 slide film. Processing slides at home is hard – I use the Bellini E6 kit and but it from Nik and Trick in Folkstone. You have to screw up your courage before embarking on the processing – but I’m happy with the results – at least as a first go.

Colour Negatives Half Frame Worthing Life

Locked down with half the family and a half frame Olympus EE2

This is my Olympus Pen EE camera. It’s a great little camera which has an automatic exposure control and low light warning – which work off the power generated by its built in light sensitive cell and does not need a battery. This is a half frame camera – which means it takes images on 35mm film which are half the usual size. With this camera you get 48 images from a 24 shot film – or even a few more.

Olympus EE 2

I bought this camera on ebay from a seller in the Netherlands – in fact in the back of the camera is a label for a camera shop in Amersfoort. A beautiful town!

Anyway – here are the pictures which I tool during May and June 2020 while we were locked down and the weather was beautiful. Shot on Fujicolor 200 and processed in the sink.

Locked down and puppy

So – we’re about four weeks into our Corvid 19 lock down and I fixed the light leak in my Olympus OM-30 – I took these photos as a test, but they turned out grand – because if you take a picture of 16 week old Labrador you cannot take a bad picture.

Beautiful Worthing

Let’s face it. Worthing is beautiful and it’s practically always sunny here. These photos on Kodacolor taken with a Canon EOS 3000 in late summer 2019 – when you could walk about!

Worthing bus day – and a trichromic accident

TheWorthing bus rally 2019 was a splendid. Worthing always looks lovely, but when you add antique buses and a big wheel the day promises to be perfect. On the day, however, it was overcast – and I was planning to take some trichromic pictures of the buses and the wheel. Unfortunately I used a new (to me) Olympus OM 30 for the trichromic which had a massive light leak. Naturally I only discovered the leak when I emerged from the dark room.

Road Trip to Beamish – Summer 2019

This summer we took our old van and our middle aged dogs on a road trip to meet up with my son and his partner – and to meet her folks.

Our van likes to do about 100 miles a day – so a return trip from Worthing to Beamish took us 10 days. The weather was pretty wet, but we weren’t downhearted and the van behaved faultlessly – the van, Hildegarde, has now gone off for her annual make over so while she is away having her welds welded we can look at these pictures and make plans for next year.

All the photos were shot using an Olympus OM30 and fuji colour negative film – all developed at home in the sink!

As well as visiting Beamish open air museum we also visited the wonderful Yorkshire sculpture park.

Chiddingly – a little bit of heaven in East Sussex

Just before the nights began to draw in we took advantage of the late summer bank holiday to take out van and dogs to Chiddingly. The weather was great, the pub was ideal and I captured a few pictures using the Olympus OM 30 – and a roll of Ilford FP4. I also took the opportunity to shoot three new Trichromic images – three black and white images working together to make a colour image – just like technicolor!

Santorini – not raining

Back in May we went to Santorini and experienced the early spring rain and chill – but after the rain there inevitably follows some sun – all on Fujichrome 200 and shot with the Olympus OM30.

It’s sunny!
The beach was ready but the people weren’t
That’s the island of Anafi in the distance

Santori is famouse for it’s sunset – I have made a gallery of the sunset photos here
