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……


It’s a bit blurry…

I recently borrowed a lovely 24mm Canon tilt-shift lens for photographing building exteriors for a client.  I’m not going to post any of those photos here but I did get a little chance to shoot some other pictures with it that are below.

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.

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.

Posted in snowboarding by Richard on January 10, 2010

Finally got to go snowboarding yesterday – first time since Austria last Feb, which is way too long.  I’ve been harping on about a trip up to Yad Moss to go and ride ever since the flakes started to fall.  I’d wanted to go during the week, when it would be quieter, but seeing as my friends have proper jobs unlike myself, it just wasn’t possible.  So in the early hours of the morning Danny, Lee and I set off for our first runs of the season.
