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.

Another shot from the flea market. I’d spotted this guy on my initial walk-around and wondered about getting a candid shot, but as I approached the stall I saw another photographer ask him if he could take a portrait. After he’s moved away I decided to fo the same, and the guy was good enough to oblige. Un-noticed by me at the time, the original photographer had walked around the next row of stalls and gave me a direct glance as I took my shot. Two for the price of one. 🙂
