For this third week of Film Fridays I have the roll of 120 I shot, again on the Zero Image 2000, purposefully for International Pinhole Photography Day on 28th of April 2019.
Following the tragedy at Grenfell every tower block in the country was inspected to avoid the same from happening. Upon further inspection the tower blocks of Horatia and Leamington were found to be structurally unsound and were this evacuated. This has resulted in two twenty story flat blocks that should be bursting with light andContinue reading “Horatia and Leamington”
This weeks Film Friday post comes from Easter 2019 and another roll of Ilford FP4+ through the Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera. This time from a walk at low tide between the Cornish beaches of Lusty Glaze and The Great Western Beach.
Towards the end of 2019 I came to the realisation that I have A LOT of developed film sitting in storage files mostly not digitised. For 2020 I have set myself a ‘New Years Resolution’ to scan and publish one roll a week through my social medias and this blog. Today kicks that off! ThisContinue reading “Film Fridays – Week 1 – 3rd January 2020”

Protests from April against the proposal to build upon the gardens adjacent to the town hall. The plans are to build a huge church on the land with the people wanting the retain their green space within the expanse of Paphos.
In the heart of Kato Paphos lies the church of Agia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa. A stone Catholic Church from the 16th century which sits amongst the ruins of a significantly larger church from the 13th Century.
At the invasion of Cyprus by the Turks in 1974 Turkish Cypriots fled their homes on mass. Even 45 years later whole villages remain standing, abandoned. Evretou sits on the banks of the reservoir by the same name. Shells of buildings, stripped of possessions, stand empty. These particular images were taken of upper Evretou duringContinue reading “Evretou – The village left behind”
On half term break but never far from the camera! In particular we’ve been celebrating the 50th birthday of the District Association we camp with of the Camping and Caravanning Club. This particular frame is one I’ve wanted for a while and fits with a project which will see a lot of focus over theContinue reading “5×4 in a field”
