Arran

September 15, 2008

Here are some pictures from Liz and I’s trip to Arran this August. I liked some of the pictures I got from the trip but overall I was kind of disappointed in myself … lots of the pictures were just not as good as I wanted them to be. Also that the trip over on the ferry presented some amazing opportunities for photographs – out on deck there were a wealth of characters, there were a pack of jet skiers chasing the boat, there where some particularly bold seabirds chasing the ship and swooping down taking stuff from peoples hands. I took a whole roll of film and expected great things … but then discovered my camera had chewed up the film 😦

Also I am kicking myself about this picture (a repeat from my last post I know):

… this was the last in a roll of film and while I was changing it a girl on a horse galloped past leaving the family staring after it … it could have made a really great picture. Oh well maybe digital does have some merit…

Anyway here are some pictures…

Dusting off the holga

August 28, 2008

I have started using my holga again a bit lately and have been enjoying it so I thought I would post some recent pics here since its been a while since I posted anything. I have cropped all of these to roughly a 35mm aspect ratio. It is not something I usually do but I think for these pictures the cropped versions are much better…

These first two are from a kind of soggy Fringe Sunday.

This one is from the garden of the Dean Gallery where Liz and I went to see the Foto exhibition.

And these two are from Arran where we went for a few days. It was also a bit soggy here but we had a great time despite the weather.
