City I: The Radishes of Time

Photograph of clocks in the City of London by Mark Moore.

  The first of a short sequence of images taken in the City of London. The clocks seemed appropriate today – I can not think why. When I see this picture all I can think of is “beware the radishes of time” – probably because it is twenty past Noon. Leica M7, Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm and expired Fuji C200 colour film, shot with stacked ND and polarising filters, and an ageing photographer.

Stratford V: The Whale

Photography by Mark Moore

Part of the wooden outer structure of the Olympic Velodrome, Stratford, London. For an excellent panorama of the interior of the building, follow this link… Leica M7, Zeiss C-Sonnar shot wide open with expired colour film, and a stack of a 3-stop ND and polarising filters (to work around the maximum shutter speed limitations of the Leica and give a more curious colour).

Stratford I: Jonathan and the Giant Abacus

Photography by Mark Moore

  At least I think It is a giant abacus. I am not sure. Like an old computer, Its memory and display could well be One and the Same… Queen Elizabeth (Olympic) Park, Stratford. Taken with the M7 and Zeiss C-Sonnar, some very expired film, and way too much bokeh. It has taken much too long to upload these shots, taken over a long weekend in the UK. It is often stated that shooting film is a way to avoid time in the “digital darkroom” – but never have I had […]

The Fall of Night

St John's Church, Hythe. Taken with a Leica M7 and Zeiss C/Sonnar 50mm lens.

Silhouette of St John’s Church, Hythe, constructed in the late 19th century. Amazingly, churches like this are still in active use. The much documented falls in UK church attendance seem more likely to be due to apathy and the emergence of less altruistic trends in British society – rather than an advancement in people’s willingness to think, reason and understand the world around them without recourse to superstition. Taken with the Leica M7, Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm f1.5, some Kodak film that expired a decade ago (as opposed to the Fuji used previously), and a lot […]

Shore Road

Shore Road, Hythe, Hampshire. Taken with the Leica M7 and Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm f1.5.

View towards Weston (Southampton) from Shore Road, Hythe. Taken just before sunset with the Leica M7 and Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm f1.5 and a very very expired Fuji colour film. The vignetting and blur that you see here are characteristics from using the Sonnar wide-open. Mouse-over to see the impeccable scratches added by Fotoprix when processing the negatives… painfully cloned-out with partial success using photoshop. As if the scratches were not enough, I also hit problems using our Wacom tablet with photoshop. Pen-up events were not being recognised, causing all manner of mouse/tablet control chaos. This […]
