Shot at Southwold Harbour, Suffolk. Brilliant sunny day and probably taken around midday (I know!), but the Kosmo manages to produce good contrast in the harsh light. Such a shame Analogue Wonderland still don't have any Kosmo 120 in stock as I like the low grain and contrasty photos you get from it with the … Continue reading SH304 Crofter
Shooting my first colour film and Kosmo mono film in the Bronica ETRS - what have I learnt...
Today is the meteorological first day of autumn but it didn't feel like it. It was cooler than last weekend but at 23 degrees with a slight breeze, it still very much felt like summer. We decided to capitalise on the weather and took a drive to Southwold in Suffolk for some sea air. Having … Continue reading Bronica’s Day at the Beach!

It's almost a year since I ran the Adnams Southwold 10K and I am not currently running that level of distance. This is because this year has been structured differently for us, we've recently been away, we have been very busy with work# and next weekend I cannot participate in the Southwold race as we will … Continue reading Autumnal Sunday Lunchtime Run

Well it was tapering but it did not really feel like it as I did not run in a week! My last run was last Tuesday and I have not had time to fit in any more sessions. Tonight's run was ok and was a short tapering session to make sure everything was ready for … Continue reading Tapering (ish)
Oooer misses that sounds a bit risqué... I woke with a lot of chest and shoulder pain as I had been to the physic yesterday and as well as some traction and hard manipulation he also gave me some acupuncture which left me a little sore and tired. He did say to see how I … Continue reading Hard but fun!
My race bib and timing chip have arrived for the Adnams Southwold 10K. Looking forward to the race and especially looking forward to my goody bag which includes a bottle of Adnams beer! Just I hope I finish in good time as the town centre can only be closed off for 90 minutes! 😉
Trying to get back into my training proper for the 10K in a couple of weeks and will ensure I complete longer runs over the weekend. Today was 6K - which although not 10 is longer than my usual run. I decided to take it easy and run on a loop that would take me … Continue reading A busy Saturday
