Found somewhere to develop my 35mm film

With the demise of Jessops in Barnstaple I thought I was going to struggle to get my 35mm colour film processed – I found a place in South Molton so the panic is over. The image above was taken with my trusty Pentax P30 35mm camera (no 3702885) using an out of date roll of Kodak [read more]

Found 35mm film in camera – #Cuba 1999 – #rodeo

I found an old 35mm camera in the attic of our house – I bought a battery and rewound the film that was in it.

These images are of a Rodeo I went to in Cuba (1999) – the vaqueros pictured were the ones I had the privilege to ride up and across the hills around Viñales with (a small town and municipality in the north-central Pinar del Río Province of Cuba). These are the same people I drank rum with at 6 0’clock in the morning and the ones who carried me to my bed at 1 o’clock in the morning.

This arena was part of a complex (by a lake) where Castro’s stallions were kept and a cock fighting ring was situated – surrounded by small pens where the finest Mexican fighting cocks were pampered and preened. The entrance to the whole complex was maned by well armed guards.

The horseshoe of sand that is Woolacombe Bay, constantly changes. The summer and the sun bring the tourists, the winter brings drama to the seascape. The surfers and hang gliders, brave the seasons’ changes. The one end of the beach is the town of Woolacombe, to the other is Putsborough  and Baggy Point…Read more
