Ready Wrapped

Camera: Nikon D80 Lens: Sigma17-70mm f/2.8-f/4.5 Film: Digital Notes: Now I know how supermarkets wrap their veggies in plastic. The result of a afternoon spent walking between Mylor Bridge and Restronguet. It’s been a while since I’ve used the D80…all those buttons make my brain hurt.  


Shack

Camera: Holga Lens: Std Film: HP5 film and Dev’d in Microphen Notes: The Hamlet of Coombe nestles on the bank of Cowlands Creek, and being less than a 5 minute drive from my home, is one of my favourite spots when I need to get away from it all.

The Citadel: City 17

Camera: Nikon D80 Lens: Sigma17-70mm f/2.8-f/4.5 Film: Digital Notes: Three wonderful days shooting buildings in Manchester. This is the Beetham Tower, the tallest building in Manchester but bears a remarkable resemblance to the Citadel from Half Life 2.
