Cameras and Cranksets

Old camera, new photos

Posted in 35mm by Richard on November 14, 2011

I picked up a lovely little Ricoh 500G 35mm rangefinder at a carboot sale for the princely sum of………. £1.00!! The new battery for it cost me more!  I’ve shot a couple of films through it now with mixed results, on one hand the light leaks are lovely.  But on the other,  just realising now it’s a bit broken and it’ll only shoot in f16 when in shutter priority mode has been a bit of a bugger as I’ve lost some potentially nice shots. Oh well……

New friends, new cameras and old favourites.

I love a trip to the beach on a nice day, it’s one of the reasons that I like living in Newcastle – so much beautiful Northumberland coastline on the doorstep.

Whoops! I didn’t realise it had been so long since I’d last posted.

So I guess I should post some shots from a couple of recently developed films.

Drunks in the park

I love a good freebie, so when the Jamie at Red Bull asked if I’d like to go to ‘T In The Park’ as a thank you for working with them for the last year I had a grin like a stoned cheshire cat.

Even though I wasn’t actually there to work I obviously had to take a camera, as the opportunity to shoot a few rolls of film on some of my favourite bands and thousands of very drunk scottish folk was too good to miss.

The weather took a turn for the worse.

Massive thanks to Jamie, and Red Bull for the tickets.

In the sticks

I’ve been putting in quite a lot of miles recently just riding around Northumberland on my own except for a camera or two.  The beautiful countryside is criss-crossed with loads of smooth and practically empty lanes, with the occasional pub/cafe, perfect for cycling.
