A mixed bag of Goodies

It’s been a while since I uploaded ‘a week in photos’. Things have been a little hectic here in Cloudy Towers, so I haven’t really had the opportunity to do as much photography as I would like.

So here is; a long overdue batch of my favourite photos over the last few weeks – hope you enjoy:

Big Brother is still watching

He’ll build a glass asylum, with just a hint of mayhem – Leica M3/Elmar 9cm

Whilst waiting for a train in Waterloo station I decided to go escape the concourse and smoke a pipe on a little  bridge. I spotted this bit of street art in between two buildings and couldn’t resist. I guess most people would associate ‘Big Brother’ with some celebrities locked in house nowadays rather than George Orwell’s 1984 or even David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs album.

The Girlfriend and I got lost and covered in mud in Bookham Common, Surrey.  If ever you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit.

Iliffe Yard

Iliffe Yard – Leica iiif/Elmar 3.5

This photo was taken during a lens test of a Russian fake Elmar vs the real thing. I can honestly recommend saving your pennies and buying a proper Elmar 3.5. In my opinion, the best lens Leica ever made, if you don’t mind using a slow lens.

Good thing about carrying a 90mm lens in your gear is that you can get that little closer to the action!!

The Ladies

The Ladies – Leica Standard / Elmar 3.5

The Standard has fast become my favourite ‘carry about’ camera. Its small, light, discreet and simply fantastic!

Welcome to The Elephant & Castle - Elmar Standard / Elmar 3.5

Welcome to The Elephant & Castle – Elmar Standard / Elmar 3.5

This is one of the last standing walkways of the Heygate Estate, Elephant and Castle. I lived in the Heygate for nearly a decade and have very mixed emotions watching the concrete jungle slowly get ripped to the ground.
