I heard something



I heard something yesterday.
It wasn't about North Tolsta just in case you have a listening cup against our wall.
I was going to tell you about 'it' but I think some might get upset so I'm keeping it to myself.
For the moment

Oh, I hate competitions

Funny that since I spent 10 years of my life coaching people how to compete in cycle races - and in the main, they are proper competitions.

No, I really hate photography competitions. With a vengeance. I mean, how can one judge 'good' or 'bad'. Technique maybe but as to whether the image speaks to you is a very personal thing.

But I am changed a little. Whilst looking for something, something interesting as it happens, I came across Art Battles. I'd go to be part of one of those events any time. Somehow the idea seems different. The personality shines through, the emotion of the happening is positive and supportive - on the surface anyway.

I wonder if I could arrange the same sort of thing in my darkroom?

Anyway, here's quick snapshots from the beach. EH?

Cycling


This must have been the day of summer 2015 when Eve deemed it warm enough to bare her legs and blind anyone who looked at them without a welding mask on.

Not another!


Yes. Hot from the darkroom and still a tad damp, this print on Ilford MG FB is as old as. As when I had the KOWA6 to play with. It kept failing on my, cost a fortune to repair so I got rid. I still have some negs though - and this is one of them. Nice eh? For a non-portrait anyway.

sea

This I might mention here, is the sea. Not all of it mind you just a bit that was wallowing past here recently. I snapped it up before it went on its way, developed the film, printed it onto old Ilford RC paper and scanned it for here.
Sometimes I wonder if its all worth it.
