Sad day

(viewed 2697 times)
Haven't posted for quite a while (again) but thought I would let you all know that we had to have Tim put down this morning. He was 13 which is a good age for a greyhound. He'd been going downhill for some time but especially in the last month and the vet thought he was suffering from rental failure.

This is how I'll remember him, running on the local beach.

Olympic torch

The Olympic torch going past our house yesterday. And who is that the top shot standing by our front door trying to get her cameraphone to work?

Pretty much sums up how it's been around here lately.

Coat definitely required!

Self development

(viewed 3243 times)
Kind of lost my photo mojo over the last month. My mother passed away on 13 March and although it was expected and she had lived to the grand old age of 91, I still haven't had the urge to pick up a camera until the last couple of days.

Yesterday, though, I finally achieved a long standing ambition to develop my own film. The photos are from my Rolleicord TLR, I developed them myself and scanned the negatives and these photos are some of the shots from that film.

With the Rolleicord you have to remember to wind on the film after you've taken a shot, otherwise you get double exposures. Sometimes I quite like the result of accidental double exposures, though, like in the last shot of Tim.

Anyway, it feels good to have finally developed my own photos and I hope to do a lot more in the future. There is something about the subtle textures and tones of film that you just don't get with digital.

Having a nice lie down

I'd stopped to take some photos, so what's a dog to do? Stretch out on the grass in the sun, that's what.

Hard to imagine it on a very gloomy Monday but we did catch a glimpse of the sun over the weekend.
