A church in a pond

I had to stand on a bench in order to get the composition right for this (sometimes waist-level finders are a distinct disadvantage!). As a result it suffers from a bit of camera shake if examined closely, but I like it nonetheless. It’s a little far for me to travel to re-take sadly, although maybe one day…

The Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin

The main reason for my visit to Clumber Park at the weekend was to take shots of this church – the photo comp I’m in has ‘churches’ as November’s subject, and this is a nice church in scenic surroundings.

Someone walked into my shot

Here’s a shot from my Zeiss Mess-Ikonta 524/16. It shoots square 6×6 negatives. Unfortunately, just as I clicked the shutter on this one, someone walked into the left side of the shot. It didn’t really add anything, so here’s a cropped 6×4.5 version instead.

The crop isn’t too bad actually, and might be better than the square version (even if someone hadn’t spoiled it), although I had to straighten it slightly and so the crucifix atop the spire just makes it into the frame by the skin of its teeth.

It’s a nice camera and I might consider getting it CLA’d so that it works at all shutter speeds.

Approaching High Bradfield

This was taken back at the start of the year, when I went for a walk around High & Low Bradfield, just outside Sheffield. The day is probably most memorable for the fact that I stumbled and fell flat on my face in the verge while walking down the very steep hill to Low Bradfield.  Luckily, apart from my pride, nothing was hurt too badly!
