Nipped out today to snap some of the autumn colours. Fired off some film too but only half a roll so it sits waiting to be finished in the back of the Lubitel 166.

Finished a roll of film the other day from the Canonet QL17. ISO was set at 400 and I didn’t remember ever having 400 colour film, turns out it’s been so long in there it was actually black and white in the back. A couple of shots from Amsterdam tells me that the film has been in the camera for two years. For a little … Continue reading Where the river boat swayed beneath the sun . . . .

The lion King of Beasts always looks regal when he decides to sit up and cast his eye over his land. Sadly … Continue reading Big Cat Diary in Spain
The weekend past had fairly reasonable weather. We might be heading out of our recent ice age conditions and getting some heat soon, just before winter comes around again! We’re at the Reekie Linn waterfalls they get their name from the Victorians. . . well the first part anyway. In Scotland Reekie means smoke and the spray coming off the water can have a smoke … Continue reading The Falls Of Reekie Linn
A few shots I’ve taken recently for the chaps at Designer Events Scotland’s very own DJ/Cocktail mixer extraordinaire. They do one, they do the other or they do both at the same time! Not posted much this year so far. I do have a roll of film sitting in a camera that’s a couple of shots away from being finished. Been in there so long … Continue reading The Hands Of A Conjurer
