TUNSTEAD. (10/11!3)

It’s a beautiful cloudless day. I went out for a wander along the edge of Chee Dale.

_MG_2196 Just the two images today and fifteen in B&W which are still in the Bronica. Hopefully they are if I worked it right. It took me ages to load the film. Not to get it in the film back, I'm not quite that stupid but I couldn’t get the film to wind on. After fifteen minutes it was time to read the instructions. There is a little lever which when pushed down allows for multiple exposures. It was down not up so that explained that little problem. Whilst reading the book I found there are several other buttons which do interesting things. There is no bulb exposure but if I remove a little grub screw on the lens I can open and shut the shutter by hand. I suspect a box full of spare grub screws wouldn’t be a bad investment.

That’s all for today, have a good week.

  4. Beautiful day here as well. I might go outside...or, I can just look at your pictures.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures from the Bronica. Hopefully they will turn out well.

  5. What fun, having to wait until you've finished the roll, just like in the Old Days! I can feel a metaphor for patience and delayed gratification coming on...

    2. Katherine, I can see that I'll have to re-adapt. No more just clicking.
      Yes it's Tunstead cement works. The image will come up large enough to see it with a click.

  7. The images leave me with the notion that you were skipping along singing "The hills are alive with the sound of quarrying!" Tunstead is such a big hole isn't it?

  9. A manual. A real live paper booklet. Probably pristine and unread too until now. I'm looking forward to your new book "Adventures with my Bronica".

  12. I only understand the instruction books of technical stuff once I've played about with it as it's usually full of garbled rhetoric !
