I’ve walked around the Kelham Island area of Sheffield on numerous occasions and posted many photos of it on my blog. Despit this, I’d never walked through the Little Kelham section before. This section is a mixture of modern housing and gentrified industrial buildings, such as the one in today picture. It’s an area that will benefit from futher visits to see what other photo opportunites await.
This picture was shot with my Yashicamat 124G, which I think may have some haze forming on the taking lens as I’ve noticed on a few occasions that images suffer from veil flare and a loss of contrast towards the centre of the image. Oddly, it’s an inconsistent effect though, sometimes not appearing at all, even in compositions where I might expect it to, so maybe it’s not haze at all? I’ve had a quote for a CLA, but it’s quite expensive, although still much less than a replacement camera, so I think I will need to bite the bullet and get it done at some point. It’s one of my most used cameras so worth the TLC.
