Delights from the mountain of undeveloped film

I’ve a mountain of undeveloped films I have shot over the year sitting on my desk. I’m slowly ploughing my way through developing them and as I have absolutely no idea of what shoot they are from, each is a total delight when I see the results:

 

I desperately kid myself that I am a ‘street photographer’ yet do not feel I have the eye for a decent street shot nor the stones to pull out my camera at close range to my subject.  However, last weekend I tried a new technique  - from the hip, close range with a 21mm wide lens. This style could work but framing is a little hit and miss. I was particularly pleased with this image which gives me the inspiration to persevere with this style

I’m slowly working on a project on the boundaries of the City of London. The City is heavily protected by ferocious fire breathing dragons and here’s a couple of recent shots of them I’m particularly pleased with

I’m really loving try to tame the 15mm lens. However finding a whole frame with something interesting in the forground, and a whole frame that’s not just wasted space is proving to be a challenge. I love the skull in this one and the trailing lines that lead to the couple outside a cafe.

And finally, its good to know that the Goddess Sophia is about and doing a great job scrawling graffiti on the doors of St Paul’s Catherdral
