Day #260

Day #260Title: Smithfield Market
Location: Smithfield, London
Camera: Univex Mercury II (CX) / Universal Tricor 35mm f/2.7
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 (expired)
Notes: I don’t go to London for ages and then two trips in the same week – this was rather impromptu but I decided to attend an evening tech event where one of my friends from Leeds was speaking. I travelled during the afternoon and took a wander for some photos on the way. This is Smithfield Market (renowned for selling wholesale meats) now largely quiet as most of the business of the day goes on very early – well before I get up!

Day #256Title: The Organ
Location: High Beech Church, Epping Forest
Camera: Univex Mercury II (CX) / Universal Tricor 35mm f/2.7
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 (expired)
Notes: I was glad I managed to make a picture inside the church here, the expired Tri-X helped (rated at ISO400 but I suspect less sensitive now due to its age). Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #66 – Musical Instruments.

Day #247Title: Crumbling Barn
Location: Little Bromley, Essex
Camera: Univex Mercury II (CX) / Universal Tricor 35mm f/2.7
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 (expired)
Notes: I was out exploring north east of Colchester this afternoon when I spotted this crumbling old barn structure near the church at Little Bromley. I’m not sure it keeps the rain out much these days!

Day #246

Day #246Title: St. Thomas The Apostle, Navestock
Location: Navestock, Essex
Camera: Univex Mercury II (CX) / Universal Tricor 35mm f/2.7
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 (expired)
Notes: I’ve been testing out my Univex Mercury II camera recently – it’s a half-frame 35mm format camera, so those rolls of 36 never seem to end! Instead I tried some expired Kodak Tri-X 400 which I’ve had kicking about for a while – it only has 20 full frames, so it didn’t take an age to finish the roll. Here we are at Navestock for a visit to the Church.
