London: Somers Town

Whilst we were in London our sister-in-law showed us a short cut between Kings Cross station and Euston station that cut through Somers Town. I used to go through Kings Cross via the tube all the time but never really ventured that far from the station or walked around the area. So discovering that Kings Cross used to be a slum area of the city in the 1800’s was something that was a genuine surprise to me. The area has obviously been improved over the years but the little details of character have popped up and reflected the people living there.

I had a train to catch so didn’t get as many photos as I would have liked but I definitely want to go back already and have a proper look around!

Again I loooove the colours that this Kodak Ektachrome produces and I’m really loving how crisp and clean it is for capturing these kind of details in their full glory.

Yorkshire Dales: Signposts

As with the Kodak TMax 400 that Kodak Alaris sent me, I tested the Kodak Tri-X 400 in a similar way by taking photos of my favourite subject - the litte details. Again I’m reminded that I could easily change my blog title to ‘lovely light and little details’ and it would pretty much sum up what I do here haha.

I’m not sure why I’m so drawn to taking photos of these style signposts but I had to keep catching Thomas up on our walks haha. Perhaps to remember where I’ve been?

Either way I’m quite taken with the results of these photos. The first photo especially has a rather luscious grain I think. Its not quite as smooth as the romantic TMax 400 but I think I prefer it. My eye sight is pretty shocking (I won’t tell you my prescription lol) and one of the reasons I’ve continued using film for so long is that I find it so perfectly represents how I see the world.
