Slide film photographs of Whitstable

I used to do a lot of photography, but I don't do half as much now, which is a bit of a pity. My flickr account (which I started in 2007) has 376 albums and 4976 photos. I thought I'd do some regular posts with photos from some of the older albums. I'll tag them as "from the archives", especially as a lot of them are from well before I started this blog, or moved it from blogger to wordpress. Here are some photos from a trip to Whitstable in January 2008. It was my birthday, and I went on a trip to the coast with my friend Bryony and our then boyfriends. I had this Kodak slide duplication film I'd got in a giant bag of expired film I'd got for 50p per roll a few years earlier, and kept in the freezer. I'm not sure if it was taken with a Lomo LCA or an Olympus XA2. I had both at the time. I still have them in a box under the bed, but they're both slightly broken, because I got them very, very cheaply second-hand (I think they were both about £15). I should get round to fixing them at some point. I think they're fixable. These pictures were cross processed in C41, and then scanned. The pictures on my flickr account are a little small by modern standards, but screens were smaller then, and storage space on Flickr limited. I still have the negatives filed away, anyway....

The world is not my oyster

Here are the other photos from Whistable. I took more of the boats, seashore etc with my wide-angle lens on film, and I haven't had it developed yet. I much prefer my film SLR to my digital one (70s Pentax cameras just feel so nice to use), but I'm too broke lately to use much film, and I still have 5 rolls sitting around that need developing. I didn't eat any oysters while I was there, because I'm vegetarian, but I did have a really great mascarpone, truffle and rosemary pizza.... Read More...

Rooflines

These are from some photos I took in Whitstable a few weeks ago, a pretty oyster fishing town in Kent (and sometimes *too* popular with the daahn from londons for the taste of the locals). The roofline of the school took my fancy.... Read More...
