    Mostly coughing a lung after being coughed at in the face by a 16 month old. Like a great river, there’s an ebb and flow in the life of a blog, and there’s no doubting there’s been an ebb, as real life got in the way, which is a shame,...
  2. Goodwood Revival 2014

    Comment
    Just posted a new gallery of images from Goodwood Revival this year, with a host of images that are styled in gloriously saturated colours, in a nod to both the Revival event, which celebrates all things from yesteryear, and my previous post about Kodachrome slide film. The images were taken on...
  3. The Last Roll of Kodachrome

    Comment
    I’ve been neglecting you dear reader, but life moves in cycles when interests, like time, ebb and flow. Since the accident (which has become a caveat attached to many things), moving house, setting up house and job changes, picking up the camera and getting out there to document the world...
  4. Fuji X-T1 Review

    Comment
    The Huff, as he shall be known, is king of the “real world” reviews, not getting too bogged down in technical speak, colour charts or pixel peeping. He’s had a love/hate relationship with Fuji X cameras, liking the X100 and X100S cameras, but struggling with the responsiveness of the interchangeable...

    It’s never a pretty sight, when you get scores back from a photo competition, unless you’re a keen student of the photo club philosophies. I entered four images into the Southport Photographic Society’s Open competition this year, in the mono digital section, and didn’t get anything close to being accepted....
  6. Abstract mind

    by
    Comment
    As well as exercising the body, the mind has to be stretched a little, and so I set myself a very small photo project of taking some macro/abstract images around the flat and delved into the digital darkroom. Practical issues came up in the guise of a weighty DSLR camera...
  7. Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm Macro

    Comment
    It’s not often you read…if you read here at all, of an Olympus camera or lens – not too surprising since I’ve never even picked one up. I remember seeing the Olympus OM-D at the Focus Imaging show, but there was a long queue to actually pick the thing up....
  8. Supercharged X100

    Very quick top tip for X100 owners. Use a faster memory card, such as the Sandisk Extreme Pro 16GB memory card, with write speeds of up to 95mb. I’ve found since using this card over the Samsung 16GB card I was using, it’s far more responsive in reading and writing....

    At the Prescott Autumn Classic race meeting I tried an experiment…I used..say it in hushed tones…film! I had A Voigtlander Bessa R2 rangefinder film camera with Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f2 lens, that I’d got for the NEX 5N camera that I had for a while. The Rokkor is a beautiful...
  10. Fuji Colours

    Comment
    We visited the Westonbirt Arboretum, just outside the lovely Cotswold town of Tetbury. For once, the sun was shining and the air still and the autumnal colours of the trees was in full technicolor swing. There’s a vast array of tree’s from flowering rhododendrons, and towering pine’s to the beautifully...
