For Chikashi

"Ok, that's too cool a photo not to upload on flickr and your blog!" Chikashi Miayamoto's comment on my new Strava profile. A silver medal ride in the Birmingham Division individual pursuit champs in 1980 (beaten by John Patston)

A belated 'Happy New Year' to my followers :-)

Back to Donegal

OK, so I can't go back to somewhere I've never been - but I have just been looking at a route for a 4-5 day bike tour next May. First thoughts -

Sleeping away the afternoon in the shade on a hot summer's day - I wish!

So I develop this roll of film.......

from the Recesky that had been snapped on 'world toy camera day' and didn't quite get the results I was expecting. Similar results from a roll of HP5 from the same camera that I developed last night (though I haven't scanned these yet). Went and fetched the camera from the shelf - yes I know you all got there quicker than me - the lens is missing - *!!*#!*!!!!!

From the Archive - Loch Croistean Tea Room

The first from a a roll of film from March 2012 - developed, scanned and saved on the hard drive, then forgotten. Rediscovered at the weekend.

Hello again

I was working in the lab late last night..............and whilst waiting for the tests to finish I had a playaround with my Olympus E620 with a 50mm pentax 35mm SLR lens attached :-)
