Day #304Title: I’ll Cross That Bridge When I Come To It…
Location: Benfleet, Essex
Camera: KMZ Moskva 5 / Industar-24 105mm  f/3.5
Film: Ilford Delta 100
Notes: An improvement over yesterday’s pathetic effort, this was taken during a geocaching walk around some nice footpaths in Benfleet. Unfortunately it was still quite overcast and the ISO100 film meant I had to open up the aperture to the maximum f/3.5 which, combined with the 105mm focal lenght, has given a subtle, shallow depth of field.

Day #303Title: Squeezing Out The Photons
Location: At home
Camera: KMZ Moskva 5 / Industar-24 105mm  f/3.5
Film: Ilford Delta 100
Notes: A shot best forgotten – taken at night when all other options had been exhausted. The neg was horribly under-exposed and I’ve had to squeeze every last photon out of it in post production. But it was the only picture of the day, so it has to stand.

Day #302Title: Double Stripes
Location: City of Lonson
Camera: KMZ Moskva 5 / Industar-24 105mm  f/3.5
Film: Ilford Delta 100
Notes: The sinuous curve of these double yellow lines around the pavement caught my attention while I was shooting in London today. I just waited for some feet to come into the frame to complete the picture.

Day #299Title: Ploughed Up
Location: Inworth, Essex
Camera: KMZ Moskva 5 / Industar-24 105mm  f/3.5
Film: Ilford Delta 100
Notes: Today’s geocaching trip was around Inworth. The local farmers have been busy ploughing up their fields. I liked the textures here, and the little group of trees on the horizon, just about visible through the mist.

Day #218Title: On The Quayside
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: KMZ Moskva 5 / Industar-24 105mm  f/3.5
Film: Ilford Delta 400 (expired 11/03)
Notes: Today I was testing out my Soviet brick, the KMZ Moskva 5 folding camera, which takes 8 6x9cm images on a 120 roll. It’s a heavy beast but seems to be working OK. These fishing nets were on the quayside in Wivenhoe where the GNPC were having a photowalk. A great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #33 – Knots.
