Newcastle Upon Tyne Sept 2019

The Minolta Riva Mini has fast become my go-to film camera, especially when I’m out with the Fuji as my main tool of the day. The little Riva fits in my pocket, has no settings to apply, just point and shoot and hope for the best. Loading and winding the film is automatic, so on the whole a lazy-girl camera! Here are a few I took on a visit to Newcastle on a sunny day back in September.

Lunch in the cafe at The Sage
The Tyne Bridge
The Quayside, with St.Stephens Church steeple just behind.
St Mary’s church, viewed from the far end of the Tyne Bridge

and a few of the Millenium bridge and rooftops as we walked back across the bridge

  1. I always enjoy the ‘soft’ look of your film posts, FR.
    Nostalgia, I presume. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Your hopes for the best are, with that camera, certainly fulfilled.Nice views, the fact that there is not possible to see smartphone screens or digital signals around makes it look like from another time.

  4. Looks like it was a lovely day, I have never been there, but always though Newcastle might be rather drab. Obviously not!
