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……

Well, it was a long day, but what a day it was!!

Congratulations to Toms for not only winning but also setting a new world record in the process!!

A massive thanks to the lovely folks at Red Bull for asking me to shoot the event.

Well it’s not quite “We came, we saw, we cycled” but seeing as the Romans weren’t big on riding bikes……

Hopped on the train down to York last week to spend a few hours rummaging through charity shops, weaving in and out of Spanish tourists, and photographing religious nutters, before getting the train home slightly drunk.

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.

Blasting off the cobwebs

I’ve been dying to get back out into the countryside and do a half decent number of miles for what seems like ages now, especially as we’ve booked flights to Barcelona at the end of March to blast about on the bikes.  So with the snow finally gone (from the roads anyway) we hopped on the train to Corbridge yesterday and peddled back to Newcastle, and worked up a hunger for a pit stop at Bread Point for some meaty buns.





Once upon a time…

in a park not really that far away…..

With summer (and riding everyday with friends) being well and truely behind us for the next couple of months it’s time to have another look through the shots I took when I could wear shorts instead of thermals.

So first up from summer is a few of the shots that took one evening in Gosforth Park of the Newcastle Polo Team (??).  I’m personally not into playing, but it is fun to shoot. I’ll definitely go and take some more once the boys have found a new spot to play on over the winter, unless they decide to meet on a weekend.  I’d meant to post these just after I’d taken them, but the bottom line is I’m shit!

Enjoy the pics and the memories of better weather.
