Photo of my great-great-grandmother. Somewhere late 19th century.
It’s the oldest photo of a relative I’ve found so far.
At some point I want to find photos of 2 of my great-great-grandfathers, from different sides of the family, both with the same name as me. My parents, when they named me, didn’t know, so I quite enjoy the coincidence.

Fixing old photos. 
My gran has just fished out a box of old photos of the family. She has not exactly taken care of them. 
So. Time to faff about making them look better. 
The picture above is my great grandmother, aged 24 back in 1928. 
Ideally, I’d like to have a go colourising them, but I’ve a feeling that might take a very long time…

Tamron 35-80mm f2.8-3.5 

So, I wanted a rough and ready film camera to take to the Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival this year, and this lens came with it. 

Generally speaking, I don’t like zoom lenses. They tend to be a lot more soft than primes, and just aren’t worth the hassle, unless you spend big on pro-level ones.

This one, though, is not terrible. Not brilliant, but a helluva lot better than I expected. And it’s pretty fast, too. But where it really starts to look good to me, is that it can be used as a macro lens to boot. 

I don’t do a lot of macro photography, and the price of the Fuji 60mm f2.4 is too high for me to justify for the time being. 

It feels really nice, as well. Very sturdy and because it’s an adaptall, there’s all funky mechanical clockwork-like stuff going on. I’m really happy with this, especially for the price - free!

New favouritest thing - FISHEYE
I like wide angle. I can’t afford the Fuji 10-24mm lens. So….
Samyang 8mm Fisheye (second hand from one of those terrible sites that I NEED to stay away from).
Anyway. Went to the Viking exhibition at the British Museum on Wednesday and popped into the Natural History beforehand to try it out.
Rather happy with it. Very nice and harp. Hard to line up with everything, but luckily the X-A1 has some nice guidelines you can use.

It’s been ages since I posted something… woops.

I’ve been messing around with some new sounds this evening, and knocked up this quick Tangerine Dream inspired thingy.

It starts small and grows a bit.
