Cardiff Bay with Delta 400

I had an hour to kill in Cardiff Bay recently and decided to run a test roll of Ilford Delta 400 through my Olympus 35DC rangefinder. I don’t know why I haven’t tried Delta 400 before. I developed the roll in Xtol 1:1, which is also new to me, and I’m quite impressed with the results.

A reminder of the docks that used to be here before the modern Cardiff Bay was built

Delta 400 has captured the lengthening shadows of the afternoon sun very well

The Captain Scott statue and Norwegian Church. Scott sailed for the Antarctic from here. The Norwegian Church was built for Norwegian sailors. Roald Dahl was christened in it. Now and arts centre.

Yet more playing about with shadows

So yes, I’ll definitely be using more Delta 400. And the Olympus 35DC delivered its usual stellar results. Who needs a Leica when you’ve got a 35DC that cost all of £15? 🙂
