Three wise men

Taken on a morning wandering around the flea market. I used my Olympus Trip 35, which hasn’t had an outing in quite some time, but it’s a lovely little camera. Unfortunately the weather was windy with frequent showers so the market was underpopulated both with visitors, and also with stalls themselves. I still managed to get a few nice shots on the day though.

That said, the Fomapan 400 negatives are quite thin – this is the third time I’ve had this (with three different cameras), so I’m not sure what’s amiss. I’ve not had any issues with the film under-exposing before that I can recall. Oh, well, back to HP5+ for my next 400 speed shoots anyway.

Interesting things

I timed this shot just right to get the chaps face in the gap between the items, but I like the stuff on the table too, from the frog golf caddy in the frock coat (with red cap), the Leica slide projector, the skull-topped canes and all the rest.

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.
