Analogue Days

After many years of digital, I decided I would have a go with film again. That got off to a good and bad start. I bought a Nikon F2, a camera I had always wanted since I was at school in the 1970’s. I bought an F2 body from a trusted retailer, Ffordes of Beauly, excellent service as usual and highly recommended. I already had a Nikon 50mm f1.8 E and Nikkor 35-105mm lenses so I was good to go. Or so I thought. 30 years of autofocus auto exposure film and digital Canon SLR and Fujifilm mirrorless cameras makes life easy for you… going back to a manual only Nikon F2 was a real step back in photographic time. Am I liking it? Yes. It is easy? No. I buy my film from and get my processing and scanning done by Analogue Wonderland, a fantastic company run by real enthusiasts and thoroughly recommended. Here are some efforts on Fomapan 400, developed and scanned by Analogue Wonderland. Processing and scanning very good, my photography not so much.

In the above image you can see Camperdown House through the trees in Camperdown Park in Dundee. The house was built for Admiral Duncan. Below is the front of the house. I expect quite a few staff were required to run a house like that.

The house sits in a local authority country park and part of it was once the clubhouse of a local golf club.
