First Roll

Partial film strip

I’ve been mooting the idea of trying analogue photography again for awhile, inspired in part by seeing the work of the After Alice Project, a local group dedicated to documenting Calderdale and its inhabitants exclusively on film. So when my Dad offered me his old Ricoh GR1s this Christmas, I decided to buy some film and take the plunge. I’ve shot […]

Since moving to the former heart of the Industrial Revolution, up in the North of England, I’ve become fascinated by our industrial heritage.

Winter becomes Spring

I was surprised to see it’s been quite awhile since I last wrote anything on here, tempus fugit! Winter has slipped by and we’re well into spring now, with the tree’s starting to green up and all the usual spring flowers in abundance in this verdant valley I call home. We had quite a decent […]
