Location: Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex
Camera: Franke & Heidecke Rolleiflex T1 / Tessar 75mm f/3.5
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: Today was a much better day weather-wise, so Alistair and I went for a long geocaching walk around the village of Bradwell-on-Sea. We started off at the Marina where there are some very large and expensive yachts moored up!

Day #241Title: William Wordsworth
Location: Geek Steam BBQ, Colney Heath
Camera: Franke & Heidecke Rolleiflex T1 / Tessar 75mm f/3.5
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: I always enjoy a trip to the Geek Steam BBQ. This year’s was no exception. As well as us geeks, the North London Society of Model Engineers also hosted a visiting club who brought along some of their own engines to have a play on the track. This is a fine model of Britannia Pacific No. 70030 4-6-2  William Wordsworth, which provided rides for us during the afternoon. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #50 – Visitors.

Day #165Title: Feeling Over-Exposed
Location: At home
Camera: Franke & Heidecke Rolleiflex T1 / Tessar 75mm f/3.5 + Rolleinar +2 Close-Up Lens
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: Ever wonder what the backing paper of 120 rollfilm looks like? Well, this is it – with the frame numbers marked in various places along the back, catering for many types of “red window” cameras which rely on the backing paper to tell the photographer when they have wound on enough for the next frame. Of course, you don’t normally want to see your film in this state – as it would wreck your pictures! (Do not fear, this was an old roll I had kicking about, not something which one of my cameras had chewed).

Day #164

Day #164Title: Shadows In Another Light
Location: Sunderland
Camera: Franke & Heidecke Rolleiflex T1 / Tessar 75mm f/3.5
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: This sculpture is part of the Riverside Sculpture Trail in Sunderland, where Alistair, Mick and I found ourselves for a spot of geocaching today. The crane represents some of the past shipbuilding industry of the area. It casts an interesting shadow – but sadly not for us, it was rather a murky day – quite appropriate, given the work’s title! I thought it made a good subject for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Strong.
