Haven’t posted any images take on the streets of my home city for a while (perhaps my obsession with Italy and the images I took in November last year have something to do with that?). So here are a few take with my Canon AE-1 Programme on Ilford FP4 125.
“Pendolare” is the Italian verb to describe something being like a pendulum going back and for, and also used to describe commuting to and from work. About a year ago the office that the company I work for moved from an out of town and drive-able location to a new building in the city centre, meaning I could no longer drive to work and now had to catch a train. Because of this I realised I had time to read a lot more on the journey and also be able to take a camera with me and document my journey. For the last 12 months this is what I’ve been doing. I decided to go with the title as it happened to be a word I picked up during one of my Italian language classes and I thought it sounded a bit more interesting than boring old English.
Below are some of the images I made across the last year on my regular journey, they’re from a variety of film stocks and cameras and are both digital and analogue, including; Olympus OMD EM5, Olympus OM-1 and Canon AE-1 Programme, Ilford FP4 125 and Fomapan Classic 100. I hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Last few images taken from the last roll of Fomapan Classic 100 I had living in my fridge for far too long and shot on my Canon AE-1 Program. All shot around Cardiff on a pretty damp day.
Hello all, here is some photo’s I gone and took, I gone and took them on Fomapan with my Canon AE-1 Programme around Cardiff. Enjoy.
Some more street images taken across Cardiff on Fomapan Classic 100 film with my Canon AE-1 Programme, have a nose, have a comment.
A few images on the streets of Cardiff (as usual) taken with my Canon AE-1 Programme on a roll of Fomapan Classic 100. Have a couple of rolls of this stuff left, it’s not my favourite black & white film so I’ve been very slow working through it, in fact I think I bought a brick of it over a year ago now, but it’ll do. Anyway have a peruse through these and let me know your thoughts.
I’ve been holding off on posting this for some time, the roll was finished in time for the final week of Emulsive.org but me being an imbecile and massively underestimating how long it takes to get slide film developed, and then for some insane reason deciding to actually get mounted slides made also, I missed the deadline for posting my entries by a solid 2 and a half weeks. Perhaps I’ve been hiding these away to cover my shame at not being able to enter the final week, or perhaps it’s just because I’ve been busy and haven’t had the time to sit down and write an actual article on this blog (something I haven’t done properly for some time), but the images have been languishing away on my desk and not seen the light of day. Until now. So hello all and welcome to The 6 Million P Man’s first foray into shooting colour positive slide reversal film. (more…)
Saw this little beauty on a visit to Hereford a while back, in it’s rightful colour of British Racing Green obviously.
