Mountaintop Monument

Mountaintop Monument 50mm Fomapan Classic 100 f2

This pyramid shaped stone sits on top of Caerphilly Mountain, although I would call it more of a hill than a mountain. ┬áThe stone takes up the vast majority of the right side of the frame,increasing it’s size and impact on the image. The textures of it and the surrounding rough ground are focally sharp and detailed while while the town itself can be seen blurry and faint in the distance.

Taken with my Olympus OM-1n with 50mm lens on Fomapan Classic 100 film at f2.8 1/250th sec. (more…)

Mirror

Mirror 50mm Fomapan Classic 100 f4 1000th sec

Sort of got a telling off by a shop assistant for taking this photo, apparently I couldn’t shoot in there. Heavily underexposed but I quite like how that’s emphasises the mannequin in the mirror and the lit up “denim” sign, making it look like a window on a dark street in a dingy, seedy part of a city. Not bad for a photo taken in a random clothes shop. (more…)

Jo Swinging

Jo 50mm Fujicolor NPS 160 f2

This swing was a lot higher off the ground than it looked, in fact it’s probably a death machine for any children foolish enough to try and use it. So on that note, kids keep away, this swing is only for me and my girlfriend from now on. Go on, get lost. (more…)

Webber with his cape

Perhaps the finest T-shirt with a cape already attached you will ever see, this is my house-mate proudly displaying his footballing superhero prowess to the world. This is also the first roll of Fujicolor NPS 160 I’ve shot, which also happens to be the first roll of professional film I’ve used, the results have been pretty good despite it being expired by nine years (2006).

Webber Cape 50mm Fujicolor NPS 160 f4 8th sec

Surveying the scene, is that a crime taking place down there? Or just an old lady with her shopping? Olympus Om-1n, 50mm lens, Fujicolor NPS 160, f4 1/8th sec. (more…)
