Sun in Lewis

If proof was required that the sun shines in Lewis, then here it is; WhiteSettler PaulTheCrofter squinting into the sun while I capture the moment on my Voigtlander 6x9 RF.

Snap taken with Spotmatic, APX400s /R09.

While I'm posting this I find myself getting a bit on edge since outside my window the US navy are bobbing around playing war in the Minch. Here's hoping their fingers don't slip on the triggers!

I threw together a pinhole camera tother day made out the remains of an old folder, some card and gaffer tape with a pinhole poked in tinfoil. Loaded with FP4 and pointed at the pier near Bayble on the Eye Peninsula.

Paul's Peats

I bumped into Paul just as he was about to take in his peats he had cut earlier in the year. So, I grabbed the Spotmatic with some Delta 400 [in LC29] and followed him up.

Bit of a day

Terrible day today. Felt like death warmed up this morning for some reason, couldn't get going at all. Then the old car decided not to start this evening so I could not get into work! Oops! Somehow I have lost faith in that car and may have to fork out for another - soon.

Keith came into town with MiLady Mcglynn [see link] so I took them off to Bosta beach. Driving rain all the way there but sunshne on the beach. A wonderful spot like nowhere else I have been. Once Keith had sorted my pooter he went off home to Glasgow. This was taken with the Kowa.

Here we go again

After a longish walk before breakfast this morning in the warm sun that was showing itself over the island I got round to scanning some snaps taken with some Pentax cameras i have. Chinese ERA100 film and R09 as per usual. I took some of these a while ago and they have just surfaced.
The snap above is over Lochs way.

A few from the Kiev 4a and APX400s

Road to nowhere with North Tolsta, my village on the headland
Wood in Stornoway
... I am the walrus [Paul, the eggman]

Either souped in R09 or Suprol

Playing with istant film

Fuji Instax camras go for nothing - so I got one. Film is a bit more pricey but isn't it great?
First snap from this set-up.

Just had the pleasure of a visit from MiLady McGlynn MBE fresh from her recent World Championship winning rides in France at the World Paralympic championships where she won both the kilo and the pursuit with her pilot Ellen Hunter. Ms Mclynn has just started a blog and you can find it here
