Life lately on film, October 2019

Life Lately films generally sit in my camera for weeks on end. But that’s also why I get extra excited when the negatives land on the doormat — they document small events I may have already forgotten about. These photos are a mix from home, places near home, Wales and London.

My FIL was the plane spotter while I got my camera ready — team work 🙂

Steaming tea

The temperature is finally cold enough to drink tea again. Pukka Three Cinnamon is my current favourite and their Peace tea (hemp and peppermint) is in second place. The search for herbal teas that don’t taste like manky old pond water has stopped here! Oh and I’ve started making turmeric milk again too (with cardamom).

^ Hopefully the start of something great. I tried to start sketching again on a few occasions but nothing clicked into place. I thought that part of me had died, which left me feeling quite empty at times. Three years after leaving my creative days behind, my hands and brain started working together again.

Skate area in London
Southbank skate space

I like to peer into Southbank Skate Space when I’m at Waterloo. It’s a famous skate venue dating back to the 70’s that was saved from redevelopment (shops and restaurants) by LLSB. Victory for the people!! It’s usually a busy spot but I was in London early and it was deserted.

Now to load another roll of film and do it all over again 🙂

  1. Amazing photos! Tri-x pushed a couple of stops. Am I right? It could be HP5 also.

      Thanks Fotis and you’re almost right 🙂 Tri-X 400 and Ilford Delta 400 — no pushing, I used a low aperature and lowered the shutter speed for the dusk shots.

      • I’m always afraid of lowering the shutter speed. I tend to get blurry shots. So, I crank up the ISO 😀
