My latest batch of negatives popped through the letterbox today so I busied myself scanning them this evening to share with you. As usual I had successes and failures. My first shot was supposed to be a photo of my feet walking towards the camera, while Kevin opened and closed the shutter. Sadly my feet are nowhere to be seen! I think I probably needed to move less during the 15 second exposure, but the flare from the late afternoon sun is so dramatic that I figured I’d share it anyway.
The following day I spent an hour in Alsa Woods. This was my first walk there in months as it’s been so relentlessly wet that I feared I’d disappear into the mud without trace! On this occasion the ground had frozen overnight so I could walk with confidence and I found some good pinhole subjects among the bare trees.
The days which followed my stroll in the woods were wet, yet again, so I sought out photos around the house – a selfie with a cup of coffee and a couple of portraits of Lucy. I couldn’t quite persuade her to sit still for half a minute but I rather like the ghost cat images which have resulted.
My final photo from this roll of film was shot in the local spinney, featuring some beech leaves – the only foliage persistent enough to remain on the trees at this time of year.
