Soon be over

Soon be back to B&W and something interesting me thinks. Can have too much of this colour thing and things one can recognise. So last two.

Eve sat on the pointy end while I held the steering stick.

Did I mention we went sailing?

No, not on our little boat but a bigger one on Caledonian Canal. Yes, canals but big Lochs too. A 29' boatee with little house bit and everything. Snapped a bit.
 Yes Eve enjoyed herself too. Sat there sitting and driving the the thing. Watching the birds, the light and waiting the wind falling off those there hills.

Still not convinced about this colour film stuff. Shoved the £1 a roll Agfa film in the p&s and this is what we got.

But if I monochrome it up, I think I rather prefer that.
Lovely week sailing though.

And I have to admit the colour does show the coming autumn colours well.

The place is mad

The sun has been shining and there is no wind. Stormoway is wall to wall tartan and whisky as the Mod takes place. There's more cameraists around the place than you can shake a salty stick at, long lens' and over-pixelled boxes on three legged sticks - and then they all take the same snap!

We took the ferry. Although when I say The Ferry I really mean a ferry since The Ferry was being mended after getting stuck in 2 nd gear and the handbrake not working then crashing into rocks and a few pontoons the other day in Lochmaddy. We don't often go this way these days either as the ferry from Stormoway is newer and nearer home.

I snapped up the old Clansman anyway onto Polypan-f film using some old rangefinder I had about my person.  Oooh, I rather like the effect here.

I'm getting ready to cheat

Now, don't you get telling that Toots fella but my Perkeo I took on me hols stopped working again. Only shot off two shots before the double exposure preventer jammed. So there I was, bobbing around on the boat on Loch Ness, keeping a wary eye for the monster with nere a square format camera to play with. And, seeing I'd made a pact with that Tootsie to shoot some shots paying homage to Kenna - as he would do at his gaff in Spainland - I was stuffed.

I did have a little Ricoh 500ghttp://pansfilmcameras.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/ricoh-500g.html that almost worked properly with me - and an old Konica Point and shoot camera so I used those. Will edit them square and everything. I won't tell if you don't.

Here's the first I just developed and everything in Rodinal. Foma200 if you please.

Loch Ness. Or Loch Lochy possibly. Tis a Loch from a boat anyway
