A short set of images taken along the seafront in Barcelona shortly after a storm had passed,
These were shot with a Minolta X700 and a Tokina 28-70mm objective as part of some tests to select a lens for a future project. I bought the Tokina while a student, thirty years ago, and never really liked the image quality. Wide open it is just soft across the frame and without any real character – it needs to be stopped down to at least f8 to get decent results. Despite this, the zoom range is very practical and as a documentary lens with a semi-macro capability it works quite well – so long as you have good light or a fast film.
And lastly a couple of bonus beach-side images taken with the Horizon 202 – because it is just such a fun camera to shoot with!
All images were shot as usual on Ilford Delta 400 and processed in DD-X 1+4.

I rather like the ‘wider angle’ approach.
