Day #234Title: The Twisted Tree
Location: Chipping Ongar, Essex
Camera: Bencini Comet III
Film: Kodak Verichrome Pan 125 – Expired 07/69
Notes: I’ve been experimenting with some very old expired film in my Bencini Comet – it’s essentially just a point-and-shoot box with a fixed shutter speed, aperture and focus. I acquired the film from eBay a while back – it’s nearly as old as me! This fantastic old tree proved a great subject while walking the Essex Way near Chipping Ongar. I loved the textured effect which the tired film produced.

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.
