Sigla A Bowlio*

It was the JellyJam at Shoreham on Friday.
Some major ripping going down.

Don't know who this dude is but suspect he's Welsh, as he's wearing one of Grim's t-shirts.
Bob'll know, he knows all the Welshies he does.





*That's Welshie for Rock 'n' Roll

Got my stoke back again, ebay bargain.
Was a bit worried when I picked it up and the guy selling it was on crutches after breaking his foot at Meanwhile 2.

Panoramic Camera Tweaking

I picked up a cheapo 'Panoramic' point and shoot from a charity shop over a year ago.
Boxed, looks unused.


Now seeing as I sold my Vivitar UWS on ebay to fund my addiction for buying more useless crap, I had a look at this thinking it might be a substitute. Cheap, all plastic blah blah blah.
Now the way the 'panoramic' bit works is a just a plastic bit which masks the film, this means there is a black strip along the top and the bottom of the negative and then you need to ask the developer to print them 3.5" x 10". 

I figured I might be able to trim the masking bit away leaving a wider angle full frame. In the end it just pulled out, so I tried it without it in.


One problem is that the viewfinder is also masked so you can't see the top and bottom of the subject when looking through it.

Results with Kodak 400 not too bad, got that UWS lens-flare when pointed into the sun, no vignetting though.

Some results.

Good call fella, even if you drive for the opposition.

Royal Wedding Escape

Didn't quite go as planned as it was all over the radio and tv so I still didn't manage to avoid it totally.

Saw this sweet Peugeot 604 GTi, 2.8 litre V6, about 84 or 85 vintage parked in the carpark of Cité Europe


Stayed in the Ibis hotel at Coquelles opposite Cité Europe as usual.
Snapped this sunrise on my phone just before breakfast on Saturday morning.


Popped down the coast to Wissant on Saturday for a spot of lunch, had a stroll along the seafront first then a sarnie and a beer in a local restaurant.


I treated myself to the coolest pair of sunglasses on this planet (imho), Oakley Fuel Cell, polished/matte clear frames and violet iridium® lenses.
