I'm working on it

I'm working on this snap. I lithed it up on old Agfa MCC then promptly managed to crease the thing. Can't waste it so the wax is coming out!

Love the image though. Hope you do too.

That Croation Man from Croatia

Mr Denis has be posting some images from his tyme here on the island. Always interesting to see what Johnny foreigner makes of the place. The thing I like are his images are sooooo much better than my snaps. Ah well.

This is one of my snaps of Mr Denis. Look at the link for his :-)

I have taken to processing up down the stairs. Not just for the sake of doing but as I move, gracefully, from the upper floors of the hoosey to the lower. I clutch my voluminous skirt out to one side [according to the direction of the wind at the time] and slightly bounce on the ball of my feet on the stairs. Oh, it feels so very lovely. Only, yesterday the wind was a tad brisk and I had to put in a couple of reefs. Actually, if I am honest I did more than that, I wore trousers. With flares mind you, but only small flares. I descended safely you will be glad to hear.

Oh please, you know I don't take landscapes! Denis, the Croation man from Croatia made me take it. OK?
Now look at this please.

When bad is good

Nice snap don't you think? The visitor sat for me and kept on breathing and everything. Oh, it please me and all. Fair warms the cockles of my heart. I took that! Did you realise?

Ooh, this is nice too. Grain and all that sort of thing.

Nicely out of focus but the light, the light.

All imaged with the old Kiev60 GP3 film and Rodinal

Apparently this is nice

I posted this on Faceplant. And lots of peeple liked it up. Amazing what a crappy snap from a crappy plastic camera and cheap copy-film can do.

Today, [Sat] we have a[nother] visitor and she is here for a few days. This time it's Angelica from Germany out of Ullapool. We tried to take her sailing today on our Freyja but the wind was tad too strong. So we came home. It's raining now.

Pity it didn't rain last week because Denis, the Croation man from Croatia wanted some 'island weather' to photograph things in and he got sunshine and windless days instead! And taking nice images are so difficult in bright sunshine let me tell you. The light comes in without a song or dance but then it's going so fast it bounces around inside the camera. On overcast days the light behave properly although it does sulk a bit before sneaking in through the lens.

Eve with Denis doing his Fitzcaraldo thing.

Braving the sunshine



This is what happens when you visit the Windys' place. The camera goes wonky - in a nice way. That's Deanne above. Her nose isn't usually like that but hey ho, I like the snap all the same.

You see, it's not just the Windys at The Windys but Eve as well. Oooh, lovely snap.
