Go out and shoot some film/digital or watch football and regret the chance to get out and a day wasted? Watched the football, or what I could be bothered to watch between flickin’ through recipes for tonight’s dinner and end up regretting the time wasted. Briefly nipped out and fired off a few rounds from the DSLR with a 28mm lens slapped on the front. … Continue reading Last Post Tombstone
Well these receipts are all bust! When you go to the bookies and hand over your money you get a wee bit of paper, how much that paper is worth depends on how much you’ve handed over. Probably about ninety quid there! Thankfully a decent return on Thursday and a heroic effort from an 18/1 shot in the Highland National and other wee returns here … Continue reading Win Or Bust?

After pounding the concrete I checked in to the museum … Continue reading The Mummy Returns
Spotted this tree when I was running my first roll of film through the Bronica. I did shoot it but had loaded the film incorrectly so I didn’t shoot it. I like the way the bark seems to have a lattice look to it, probably happens on all trees of this species but not being knowledgeable on trees or tree species I couldn’t tell you. … Continue reading Lattice Tree
Posted more or less the same from the DSLR a few weeks back, this is one from the Bronica on Ilford HP5. Love seeing how this old trike ages over the years, pity there’s not a tree growing through it. Continue reading Easy Rider
