Day #269

Day #269Title: Playground Spring
Location: Hoxton, London
Camera: Yashica 44 Black / Yashikor 60mm f/3.5
Film: Kodak Edupe (5044) 100
Notes: Another image from the Kodak Edupe (slide stock) roll, cross-processed in C41 chemistry (usually for prints) and made mono in post production. The shadows in the little playground at St. John’s Church made my picture of the day.

Day #268

Day #268Title: C4
Location: Grand Union Canal, Shoreditch, London
Camera: Yashica 44 Black / Yashikor 60mm f/3.5
Film: Kodak Edupe (5044) 100
Notes: I took the opportunity of a walk along the Grand Union Canal today with a friend, while we were both at an event in nearby Shoreditch. This graffiti was quite striking. It’s a mono conversion from Kodak Edupe (slide stock), cross-processed in C41 chemistry (usually for prints). My original shot was going to be on the Foth Derby II but the film got stuck in the camera and I’m not certain it’s going to come out OK, so I’m using this sprocket image as my shot of the day.

Day #195

Day #195Title: We Fix
Location: Brick Lane, London
Camera: Yashica 44 Black / Yashikor 60mm f/3.5
Film: Agfa APX100
Notes: I had arranged to meet some friends for dinner this evening in London, so I travelled up a bit early and had a wander around Brick Lane. The graffiti is always good for a few shots. This was a detail from one piece which read “Can we fix it with Photoshop?”. I wonder… It’s saved my bacon on a few occasions! I had loaded the modified Yashica 44 Black with a roll of 35mm film for full sprocket-hole effect.

Day #192

Day #192Title: St. Clements, Leigh-on-Sea
Location: Leigh-on-Sea, Essex
Camera: Kodak Bantam Special Art Deco / Kodak Anastigmat Ektar 45mm f/2
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400
Notes: Testing out my Bantam Special Art Deco 828 rollfilm camera today, with a trip to Leigh-on-Sea. This is St. Clement’s Church at the top of the hill, another in the bag for the Essex Churches list. The Bantam was loaded with 35mm film respooled onto an 828 roll (Kodak Tri-X 400 from B&H in New York), hence the sprocket holes. I also have some expired original 828 film, but I didn’t want to use that for the camera test – I always try to use fresh film stock when testing so I know if anything goes wrong, it’s the camera not the film. It looks like the spool here is a bit leaky around the edges, but I guess that adds to the charm!
