Day #4Title: The Foggy Track
Location: Galleywood Common, Chelmsford
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 / Tessar 45mm f/2.8
Film: Agfa APX400
Notes: Alistair and I took a walk to Galleywood Common this afternoon. It was quite misty and cold, giving a bit of atmosphere to the tracks through the trees. Finally got a shot where I’m happy with composition, exposure AND focus. Making progress!

Day #3Title: A Pint With Flare
Location: The Woolpack, Chelmsford
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 / Tessar 45mm f/2.8
Film: Agfa APX400
Notes: Spent a lovely evening at The Woolpack enjoying chat, beer and their fantastic speciality sausages and mash with Alistair. Grand. The interior of the pub was pretty contrasty, I quite like the effect of the flare but wished I’d nailed the focus better on Alistair’s face. Anyway, it was perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #43 – Relaxed.

Day #2Title: Blurry Teasels
Location: Great Waltham, Essex
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 / Tessar 45mm f/2.8
Film: Agfa APX400
Notes: Found during a lovely geocaching walk from Great Waltham to Chatham Green with Alistair today. The sunshine was out, which was a bonus. I seem to have ended up with some camera shake here, which I’m kicking myself about. The other frame shot today was worse! Oh dear.

Day #1Title: Unchokable
Location: Museum of Power, Langford
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 / Tessar 45mm f/2.8
Film: Agfa APX400
Notes: A detail from some of the machinery at the Museum of Power. First outing with the Contessa for the Retro 365 project. Out of 4 frames today, one was unusable, two were “meh” and this was the best. It could be a long year!
