Portrait in the Stone Lion Pub

The Hasselblad does not have a reputation as a great camera for available light shooting, and this portrait shot indoors on Ilford XP2 film is not technically perfect, but I like the expression.

Starved for Colour

This image is from a few weeks ago when Winter seemed unwilling to loosen its hold. Some days you have to take colour from wherever you can find it.

Abandoned?

Recently at the Beaches my friend Ori and I saw this child’s tricycle close the water; there were no children nearby, but it did not look like the kind of thing that would be abandoned. The combination of the bright sun, the bright colour and the amazing Agfa Portrait 160 film (frozen from 2004) makes this one of my favourite images so far this year.

The Firehouse

My good friend Bill Smith was kind enough to give me two rolls of Agfa Portrait 160 film, expired in 2004, but stored frozen. I love this film!
