France on FIlm

Back in May Phil and I spent a week in Normandy, staying at an old watermill, becoming friends with Nicola the owner, and visiting WW2 sites and the like. I haven’t got round to posting the digital ones on the Universe blog yet, but I’ve just got 2 rolls of film developed and there are a few I took on the Minolta Mini Riva, using kodak portra 400 film.

We went on a visit to Mont Saint Michel.

We also visited Arromanches


and a new D- Day museum nearby Omaha Beach

After France we stayed in Folkestone for the weekend for a model show and I took a couple there too.

That’s all folks!

  5. Extraordinary photographs, fragglerocking. Is amazing that they are done without post-processing and in just one try.

  6. You know I am biased when it comes to film…there is something extra special about photos on film that digital just misses, IMO. Beautiful!
