Post-box red

There’s something special about the way colour film renders reds, even cheap consumer-grade films like the Colorplus I used here.

A splash of red

My shot for the “close-ups and macro” theme of a photo comp I take part in.

Three bicycles

I liked the arrangement of the three bikes in this shot, although it probably worked better via my eyes than in the resulting shot, with the rearmost cycle looking a little insignificant. I like the sub-framing though

Grainy days

Given that I didn’t post anything to the blog yesterday (I left it until late in the evening and then forgot and went to bed!), it’s a double-post day today.

I’m not quite sure why the shot below has such pronounced grain (it was taken with the same roll of HP5+ as many of the other recent shots I’ve posted, and they don’t have nearly so much). Maybe the snow and mist threw the camera’s meter out and then I overcompensated the exposure at the scanning stage or something. I guess I could re-scan the negative and see (but I probably won’t).

Grain isn’t something I dislike though, so not to worry. 🙂
