Day #214

Day #214Title: Shiny Camping Kettle
Location: At home
Camera: Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 / Tessar 45mm f/2.8
Film: Ilford Delta 100 (expired 06/12)
Notes: Having spent two nights camping at the UK Mega Essex 2015 event at Barleylands in Billericay, we got home late this afternoon and began unpacking. One thing which was invaluable was this shiny new camping kettle which we took with us – can’t be left without a cuppa just because we’re slumming it under canvas!

Day #186

Day #186Title: Big Buick Grille
Location: Promenade Park, Maldon
Camera: Haking Halina Prefect / Haking’s Double Meniscus f/8
Film: Ilford FP4 125
Notes: Today I visited the Maldon Classic Car show – and got lots of colourful digital shots of the old machines. But I also took my Halina Prefect 120 box camera along for a spin. I have been waiting for a sunny day to go out and play with it, and this was the best excuse. For a simple box camera with fixed shutter speed of 1/50s (ish), only three aperture settings to choose from (f/8, f/11 or f/16) and fixed focus, it did a pretty good job of capturing the shiny chrome and curves. The guy who did my developing didn’t believe it was taken on a box camera! Ha!
