When we attended the Goodwood Members Meeting in April I took my Olympus Trip 35 film camera with me, along with all my digital gear. I shot one roll of Street Candy film and sent it off to be processed soon after. The negatives came back a few weeks ago but today was my first chance to scan them and find out whether I’d actually taken any decent photos.

They were a fairly mixed bunch, but I found a few that pleased me. I even managed to catch a little of the racing action on track – no mean feat when you can only shoot one frame at a time and your fastest shutter speed is 1/200 of a second!

Just love the feeling the b&w. Fabulous images.

Even though b&w is not my preferred form of photography I love what you have done here. The"old fashion" look is a perfect match to your shots.
