Boatyard

This boatyard in the British seaside town of Bridlington is at the top end on the car-park where we left our car for the day. It was a little difficult to get an angle I was happy with without some of the parked cars encroaching on the scene. I’m not unhappy with this one though and think the three men make the scene work nicely. Once again, lovely colours from expired slide-film too.

Today I’ve been out trying out a new digital camera. As this blog is about my film photography I doubt I’ll post any results from it here, but I might dust off my sister blog (which I haven’t updated in years) for the occasional post. The camera is a Ricoh GR III – a high-end compact camera with a fixed 28mm f/2.8 lens and an APS-C sensor. The camera is tiny (comparable to my Olympus XA3) and so will be easy to take with me on trips, even if I have a film camera with me too. It’ll probably be used mostly for (attempts at!) street photography and other urban architecture type stuff, but who knows? It won’t mark any reduction in my film output, I don’t think.

Blue boats and blue skies
Out of their environment
Yearning for the seas
