Alfresco refreshments

I shot a roll of Lomography Color Negative 400 for the first time this week. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the results are very nice, with pleasing colour, and I’m very happy with it (especially as it only cost £10 for three rolls). I used a full roll wandering around the flea market taking photos of life around the place. The light was nice and I got several pictures I’ve very happy with, but here’s a shot of people enjoying a tea break amongst the market stalls.

I took a number of photos around the flea-market this week using the Yashica Mat 124G. I was hoping for a bit of a Vivian Maier-type result and, while I don’t think I’ve necessarily achieved this, I’m still pretty happy with a lot of the shots I got.

I’m using white borders at the moment which, while looking nice on Flickr, have little impact on this blog given it has a white background anyway. 🙂

Looking a little gaunt

A large model human skull for sale at the flea-market today. Apparently it lights up (or so I overheard the stall owner tell another customer). The hat is a nice touch, I feel.

Three bicycles

I liked the arrangement of the three bikes in this shot, although it probably worked better via my eyes than in the resulting shot, with the rearmost cycle looking a little insignificant. I like the sub-framing though

Bedgreave Mill

Bedgreave Mill was built in the late 16th century and operated until 1947. It lay unused for the next thirty or so years until it was restored when Rother Valley Country Park (in which it resides) came into being in the early 1980s.

In chains

After two of my images got into Flickr Explore just last week, I was a little surprised to see that this one got in there yesterday too. I now fully expect that months will go by without any more images getting in there (unless I start taking pictures of Lego Miniatures figurines 🙂 ).

Completely in love

I’ve taken shots of the love-locks on this particular bridge a number of times before. It’s not festooned with them or anything – there are maybe a couple of dozen or so – so it’ll probably be a while before the bridge is in danger of collapse and the authorities turn up with bolt-cutters.
