Isle of Fire, Barry 22-23 August

Cardiff Bay with Delta 400

Remembrance Sunday Bridgend 2016

Remembrance Sunday in Bridgend was a bright sunny November day, just perfect for the Olympus OM-4ti and Agfa CT Precisa transparency film. I also had the Yashica T3 loaded with Agfa Vista 200 (Poundland film). Thanks to the Royal British

Romeo and Juliet in the Park – part 2

Following on from my previous post about Romeo & Juliet in Blaengarw, towards the end of the evening the light was starting to fail so I switched from 100 ISO transparency film to 400 ISO film in my OM10, and
