Standard

Been a funny old year… relatively uneventful from my perspective I guess other than my nan passing on but the lasting thought of 2016 has got to be the number of celebrity deaths…

Lets hope 2017 is a little better in that respect :/

Anyhoo… not posted for a little while so bit of an all in one update type thang…

Managed to break the S3… something is not happy at the back and shakes the car fairly badly when I go over 15mph… I have bought a replacement diff/haldex/controller for not a lot of money so will just chuck that in (after painting it of course)

Will deal with that in the new year…

My dad lent me the use of one of his cameras… not just any camera but a film camera… been a while since I have used film so looking forward to playing with it… couldn’t see the point in doing colour images with film as there is nothing it really offers over digital for hold any interest to me but black & white is a different matter…

The Nikon F-501 is a little more advanced than ye-olde film cameras having a built in light meter and AF (albeit very rudimentary) but I love the feel of the camera and that you have to think a little harder about taking a shot… its a little frustrating waiting to see the results and I am about half way through the roll of film but hopefully I will have some decent results from it..

Looking forward to trying to up my game with motorcross shots in the new year… 70-200 f2.8 should hopefully net me some decent captures assuming I can get into a decent position… I like the subject isolation f2.8 can provide so will be hopefully getting some nice candid shots from it…

Had a nice two week break over Christmas so rebuilt the drip rig to try and make it more stable and easier to setup…

Should make results more consistent and now have triple splash capability… that side of it needs work though as I need to play with the valve positioning to ensure they all hit at the same time… in the mean time I took a few images to get the rig dialled in on one valve..

Another little project I played with over Christmas was flower macro’s… as always with things like this I tend to learn loads from the exercise and this time it was to go to a florist rather than Tesco for flowers…

As I mentioned before my Nan passed away… she was two weeks off her 100th birthday so we celebrated it anyway…

Was nice to meet up with family I hadn’t seen for a while and decided to capture an image to help me remember her by… We have always told our children that when someone dies they become a star in the night sky so I waited for a clear night and took a picture I call ‘Chatting with Nan’…

To finish up, here are a few random pics I have taken since my last post…
