    Leica M-A with 7Artisans 75mm lens and Delta 400, developed with Cinestill Df96 monobath.

    I'm usually on that bridge pointing the camera this way:


    A couple of Atget-style images:



    Water of Leith again:


    ...and back home:


    ...and finally those lilies again:


    I must admit I love being able to run out at 1pm, run through an entire 36 roll, then spend fifteen minutes max developing them, and having them dried for scanning by 10pm.

    They are all great Rob. There are two that I like the most. The last one is just lovely. Very much my cup of tea. And my other favourite is your cheeky tip for absconding while the washing up is being done. "I have to go NOW, the light is magnificent!"

    Ah, if only you knew, Chris. I'm the dishwasher in this house, just as I was when growing up. For a time, some decades ago, I even had a job as dishwasher in a restaurant. It is why God created me, and once covid-19 gets the better of me, I'll be washing dishes beyond the pearly gates. There's no escape from washing dishes! :(

    Cheers, RJ. I'm more a heat-uper than cook. But my wife used to work in a Mexican restaurant in Oxford, and just loves cooking. We all have our roles...

    Another fine set sir. I love the first one, wonderful old building, fits the landscape so well. The water of Leith is great too.

    That old building is my house - not!

    Thanks, Dave.

    You do realise that if you go to hell they have a dishwashing machine there - but it's out of order! ;)

    A fine set and I really like the one of the bridge which has more impact give the current situation and fact that you might have chosen to use a different route to avoid that 'crowd'.

    Oh, I'm definitely going to Heaven, as I've lived my life in Hell - Keith Richards said that.
