Over the last week or so I was shooting a roll of Kodak Portra 160 in my Olympus Trip 35, which I have had for over a year without trying it out. Such a fun camera to use and dead simple, any idiot like myself can use it….hey what, who said that!

Generally my film ventures are mixtures of street photography, streetscapes and other totally random stuff.  I must say that every single frame from this roll I was happy with, except maybe the frame when the girl walked in front of the awesome Targa West beast of a car.  I can see myself shooting more and more film in the future, watch this space…

I haven’t blogged in a very long time, one could say I have been slack and I could make excuses like “work has been tough”, “I’m too busy”.  But, I really have basically been slack and work has been taking my mind away from creativity.

This day, I was out with the boss one lunchtime shooting the last shots on a roll of AGFA Precisa CT100 on my awesomeness Nikon F100 (for all you gear geeks like me who want to know what camera I was using) and this shot presented itself, I loved the shadows and tunnels feel of this walkway.

An odd title yes I know, and also something that I have shot before on my street walks but I had a fancy new to me film camera given to me but a guy at work (Thanks Neil).  I was actually shooting some kind of Kodak colour film, sorry I can’t actually remember which film it was but it was expired and developed with a horrible colour tinge to it, so I just converted to black and white….this was the result, I like it and makes me want to shoot more film BUT which camera. The new to me F90X, the much loved FM2 or my F3, yes I will shoot the F3 but alas it is sick and had to take it to the doctors for an operation.
