Ken

This Ken.
Do you know Ken?
I  do. Nice nice man too.

Moni thinks he's nice too. And so she should as the two as getting hitched soon. I wonder if The Shed, in which Ken is the drummer boy, is playing the party afterwards. I hope so!

Twicer


You may have seen this image before of the Tweed Ride but this is the lith print on Slavich Unibrom. Unibrom is a truly wonderful lith paper - from Russia with love.

Until recently, the waether has been playing well. Sun and calm conditions tempted us out on the old tub Freyja but there was too little wind really. Still, nice bobbing about a bit.

Lithed


All lithed up. A crop of a 35mm Polypan-f neg printed onto some old Bergger Prestige paper. Not sure who made this paper but it liths up wonderfully. Mind you, I had a nice subject.

Sorry about the scan but have not mastered that either.

The Olympics have finished now so just the Vuelta to keep up to date on. I might even get another darkroom sesh in this week.

Carbon

In our insatiable search for oil, huge constructions get towed around the place. Recently, you may know, an old rig on it's way to be cut up in Malta went aground on the west coast of the island. Only 53,000 gals of oil has escaped - so far and the thing is still stuck there.

Now artists such as Alex Boyd and John Maher have trekked over the hills to photograph the wreck. I haven't. You are not meant to either. The road to the beach where the rig is located is closed by the police and there are notices all over that side of the island forbidding one to go there.

 To be totally frank, I'm not sure the sheeps can read that notice stuck to a rickety gate down the west side somewhere. It hardly registered on my Polypan-f film in my Zorki6.

The up-side is that we now have more tug boats and salvage related boats in Stormaway harbour than cruise ships for a change. I snapped this snap from our wee boatee Freyja while out for a sail the other day using a little Pentax Espio P&S and good old Polypan-f film zapped in PQ developer.
