Sunrise, Sunset. 2016 on Film

I’ll be writing up my 52 Rolls summary in the next week or so, but suffice to say that shooting so much film through 2016 has been a complete game-changer. When I read about the project (on Emulsive) in Poland the week before last New Year, I couldn’t have imagined that it would have become […]

Film Wasting in Newcastle

Another post from my 52 Rolls project – shooting film 52 weeks a year… Two rolls for the price of one in this post (numbers 14 and 15 of the year already) but shot over the course of a couple of days and on a single trip, so I though I’d combine them.

Acros The Universe

Back to my favourite combination of last year,  the Yashica-Mat 124G and Fujifilm Neopan Acros. I shot this roll on a short walk around Cossington Meadows, the nature reserve I mentioned previously, that we’ve just moved within a couple of hundred meters of.

More Texas Leica

One of the downsides to posting individual rolls to the 52 Rolls blog is that pictures will be posted up out of context. If you’re the type of photographer that gathers pictures  into collections over many years, the shots on a roll will often be quite eclectic and not make a lot of sense when […]


A couple of Sundays ago, I was lucky enough to be invited by Iain to take pictures of our mutual friend Mikey‘s classic Citroën DS. Mikey takes his beautiful car out once a month or so through the winter and the plan was for us to shoot it in darkness, lit by LED streetlights in a similar set […]

Rowley Way Overlook

Another 52 Rolls Project entry… …and another roll shot on my brief trip to Poland in January. This time it was Ilford XP2 Super, generously given to me by my friend Iain. He’d bought in Poland and I’d promised to return it to the country to shoot it.

Mellow Gravy

This film started out in my Lomography Action Sampler sometime early last year. I’m not sure I’ve ever finished a film in that camera as usually, I don’t find enough opportunities to fill a roll. If you’ve not come across one before, the Action Sampler is all plastic and uses a clockwork, plastic mechanism to sequentially […]
