Gnarly tree

Gnarly tree
Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside yesterday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bushfires on the horizon. He’d fallen a sleep in the car by this point so I was just pulling the car over when I saw things that struck my interest and quickly snapping before jumping back in the car and continuing on. I am always a sucker for gnarled trees in countryside fields.

Earlier in the day I had finished a roll of kodak hd400 in this camera and had decided to load a roll of Ilford PanF 50, as I remembered my mate Boris talking about how great it was for hot, bright summer days, especially if stand dev’d in Rodinal. Considering it was a 38 degree day here it was probably a good choice. This was shot using spot metering, though I did switch to zone metering after this and that did result in more blown out highlights, so mental note to self shoot this spot metered for best results I believe.

This was taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using my Minolta 28mm f2.8 on Ilford PanF 50, stand developed in Rodinal and scanned on my Epson 4990.

Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside yesterday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bushfires on the horizon. Anyway, I decided to stop in a national park along our drive to take a quick respite from being cooped up in the car. There was some really interesting landscapes here. Having the little man with me didn’t allow me too much freedom to explore, but I did get of a couple of quick snaps.

Was out to dinner at the pub with the family, had brought this spidey toy along for the little fella. Had some fun with it while waiting for our meals. 🙂

This was shot on a roll of Ilford hp5 through my Canon ae-1 as I had originally put this roll in one of my Minolta a7’s. However I thought it had not loaded properly. In my haste to check, I broke the clasp that holds the door closed. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Anyway, I rewound the roll, put it in my darkbag and loaded it into a re-usable canister I use for bulk rolling and then proceeded to shoot the roll in my canon ae-1.

I dev’d this roll in rodinal, using the stand dev method and scanned the negative on my Epson 4990.

Placed the little fella up on top of the car after dinner at the pub. I took two shots, however this is my favorite.I have plenty of him smiling but this shows his attitude.

Introducing Link Atticus Perera

So in the wee hours of the morning on September the 1st 2016 at 1:09am the love of my life gave me the greatest present ever. She brought my first born son Link Atticus Perera into the world. It has been 11 days since so I thought it was about time to share some images from this personally monumental event with you all. I do hope you enjoy. 🙂

The boofs in flowers…

Went for a walk in the park today while Lisa caught Pokemon for her Pokemon Go game on her phone. haha Took he boofs for a walk and snapped these two shots of the cuties sitting in the wildflowers that are just starting to emerge at this time of year.  Taken on Sony Nex5n with Minolta 45mm f2 manual focus lens.
