Isle of Wight July 2016 ~ Minolta Riva Mini

In July our niece got married down on the Isle of Wight. Of course I took pictures at the wedding, but on the Fuji, but on the Sunday Phil and I went off to the seaside at Shanklin for a couple of hours and I took along the Minolta Riva Mini with a roll of Kodak Portra 400 in it.

It was a lovely day and Shanklin was the epitome of British seaside resort, and very nicely kept too. I think it suited being shot on film.

A Harley Davidson chapter rode into town while we were there

Love the sound of the engines

  5. It looks so inviting, Fraggle. Just when I was hoping for a late winter, we already have snow in the forecast for this week… I’d rather be at that beach! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hugs.

  6. The first shot takes the prize from me, very 70’s I thought.
    If you ever go back make sure you go to Ventnor and check out Burts Beer, they used to make a great bitter that I lapped up (once I’d fallen on the floor) on my short 8 month stay on the Island ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’m sure we will return as Phil’s sister lives there and her son is getting married there next year, will remember to go to Ventnor!

  7. Soothing blues. It is a lovely memory. It brings me memories of the smell of the sand and a soft breeze.
