I got off the train and it was absolutely smashing down with snow. I think there's something weird with my eyes today because everything looks really clear and beautiful. On the way to the station, I could see individual drops of rain exploding as they hit the floor. It's been a long day.
Anyway I thought the way the light was hitting the falling snow would make cool light trails and I was sorta right. Also sorta wrong - looks a bit like someone scribbled all over the picture.
These are all handheld at 1/4s so don't be giving me any shit about camera shake it was bloody freezing
If I'd brought my bike, I'd have been doing exactly the same thing.
This was initially intended to be a funny photo but the composition just wouldn't work. Where this guy is sitting is the brow of a mound that encircles Brighton nudist beach and provides a little bit of contradictory privacy. You frequently see people walking along the top of this hill, not realising what it's for because they haven't seen the signposts. People do seem to learn quite quickly, though.
Unfortunately, to get him and a signpost in the frame just wouldn't have worked so here we are with this wannabe-artsy affair instead. I guess it kinda works, but it isn't funny.
This was lucky. I can't do panning.
Found a roll of Tri-X, probably long expired, and since I was so happy with the roll I finally put through the T2, I thought I'd try this in it. I'm happy with a lot of the results. Some things were weird and I'm not sure why but I'll try a new roll at some point and see if it helps.
It's certainly a lot more grainy than I was expecting but it's a very pleasant grain.
