I'm Alex, I live in the UK...this is my life.

Actually this is mostly my photography (with some obsessions thrown in).

A Norwich Morning

I recently got my M7 back from Newton Ellis after a repair to the DX reader. This morning I realised I hadn’t tested the camera since so I popped in a roll of Agfa Vista 200 (good old £land) and mounted the Zeiss ZM Planar 50. The shots illustrate a typical weekend morning for me in Norwich, they might not be very exciting but then that wasn’t the point. The M7 seems to be working flawlessly now.

Pinhole Intermission: A Chat with Amanda

This episode brings together all of the women of Pdexposures.com (Jana, Shelly, and Amanda) in one grand intermission, where we discuss…well, we discussed a LOT of things. This episode definitely has a more lo-fi flow – the audio might not be up to our normal standard, but we didn’t want to prevent your enjoying our chat with Amanda!

We start off talking about the pinhole cameras in our arsenals,…

What happens when I’m not around

Home - outtake on Flickr.
An outtake from the shoot I did with NoKipple (see more here). This is where I grew up. I didn’t realise how beautiful it was when I was younger…I certainly do now.  Made with a Nikon F100, Nikkor 50mm f1.8 lens on Fuji Reala 100.

Indietracks Pinhole on Flickr.
An outtake from the shots I made for quarter one of the Next Best Thing project, which I am proud to participate in. This was made with a Reality So Subtle 5x4 pinhole camera (f127) at the Indietracks festival (on Velvia 100, and metered with the Lumu). I think The Chills were playing, I was certainly chilling as the sun set, Gopal’s curry was eaten and the beer was drunk.

Juxtapose on Flickr.This pretty much summarises all that I love about Japan. The beauty of the gardens and the care the people take of their heritage juxtaposed with the modernity and the hectic lifestyle. That juxtaposition is seen wherever you go, and its not something I’ve felt in other countries I’ve visited.
Made with a Leica M7, Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f2 on Kodak Portra 160.

Peace on Flickr.
What I assume is a less photographed corner of the peace park in Hiroshima. No fountains, no flame, no bomb dome but still the same wonderful atmosphere. I enjoyed Hiroshima a lot more than I expected too, lovely people, great atmosphere and not at all morbid despite the horrific past. I hope the optimism I felt in the city is felt by others who visit and the destruction visited on the the populace and on those in Nagasaki never happens again. Made with an Ilford XP2 disposable camera.
