My Bessa got another outing, this time on a weekend trip to Monterey, CA. I decided to shoot Ilford Delta 100 and both the camera and film performed well.
A few more photos from Film #4 of The Thirty Six (Ilford Delta 400 in Voigtländer Prominent).
These were shot in the waiting area outside of Disney’s Magic Kingdom and California Adventure parks. I was waiting outside whilst my wife was inside doing a few quick errands (I know that sounds odd but when your wife is a Cast member and you live close by, these things happen).
Anyway, it was sunny (briefly) and I of course had my camera with me so I took the opportunity to get some shots. Continue reading “Not in Disneyland (#4 of The Thirty Six)”
Part of ‘The Thirty Six‘ project this year to try to shoot the 36 films I have in stock.

I’ve been meaning to do this one for a long time. I’ve had this Agfa Isolette for ages and ages: so long in fact I can’t even remember whether I’ve ever shot film through it before. I bought it in younger days because it was cool looking.

I don’t know why but industrial architecture and landscapes always interest me. I recently took my Bessamatic out with a 50mm lens and some Delta 400 and shot these of my local power station (perhaps as a homage to Willard Van Dyke?).
Not sure they came out quite how I saw them but I am very happy with the Bessamatic; the image quality is excellent.
So this is the very camera that started it off for me. Sure I had used the family 126 Kodak Instamatic on holiday when we were growing up and the first actual camera I owned was a 110 format shop own brand from Boots (those cameras were so cool at the time) but when my father let me have his Voigtlander it took me to the next level.
