I have started shooting film again because it improves me as a photographer, it saves time, I love the film look, nostalgia and because it’s fun!
Torre de La Harina is near Sabriego, in the municipality of Alcaudete. The name translates as “Flour Tower”. Why it so-called is a mystery to me as it is generally considered to have been a watchtower. The walk to the tower is through a pleasant pine forest. The last part of the walk is quite […]
I love classic cars and film cameras, so I jumped at the chance of photographing a Citroën 2CV with my Mamiya RB67 vintage film camera. See my Citroën 2CV photos in this article. It all started when I was out walking the dogs and saw a beautiful Citroën 2CV parked by the side of the […]
This was my first attempt using Spur HRX developer with Bergger Pancro 400. It did not go well! The base of the negatives came out a milky brown; no idea why. I contacted Spur, who are looking into it and doing some testing. They will let me know the outcome. On the left: Rollei RPX […]

This article is not a review of the camera; instead, it surmises my first impressions and observations after using the camera for the first time. See the photos from my first roll of film shot with the […]
Yesterday I took my latest purchase, the Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex IIa 855/16 with me whilst walking the dogs. We walked along the Via Verde (web page in Spanish only) between Martos and Las Casillas and I shot my first film with the Zeiss Ikoflex. It was early morning and it was going to be a […]

It is located in the valley that forms the Cuadros River, in the heart of the Sierra Mágina Natural Park. The recreational area is a lovely shady spot with plenty of picnic tables by the […]

What strange and worrying times. The COVID-19 lockdown in Spain is one of the strictest in the world. The scope for photography is very limited!
This is the first black and white film I have shot for about 40 years! I used a Nikon FE2, which I bought recently. See the photos…
