As you may have read previously, I’m just back from the island of Tenerife where I shot 4 rolls of Ektar and 3 of Neopan to add to the project. I locked myself away in a darkened garage to process the Acros on the day we got back, only to find that I had no fixer left. More chemicals are on their way, and so in the meantime, you get the rest of the Ektar pictures.I often take car pictures, particularly of the cars I dreamt of owning when I was too young to drive. Tenerife is a great place to do so with all sorts of 1980s classics. My usual technique is to stand the camera on the opposite kerb and shoot across the tarmac. This becomes a little more tricky when the roads are as steep as they are there. Anyway, here’s a Fiat 127CL for starters…The road to Guia de Isora.We spent a happy couple of hours around the harbour in Playa San Juan and some of that time watching tuna fish being landed, packed in ice and then into a truck. The crew worked extremely hard as a huge amount of fish appeared from below the deck of the Pixape (I love that technology allows us to keep track of the boat from my desk at work).The streets of Garachico – a lovely place that was once the main town on the island. Then a volcano erupted, destroyed many of the town’s main buildings and filled the harbour with lava, rendering it unnavigable. There are lots of beautiful Mercedes on the island – I just can’t resist them!Fishing from the volcanic rocks.It’s been great returning to the UK to some decent weather and with Springtime in full swing – it’s my favourite time of year. I fired off the last frame of the roll in our back garden…
