ST MICHEALS MOUNT MONOCHROME

I started photography back in the mid 1960s with a very cheap Helina 35mm film camera and shot everything in Monochrome as I could not afford colour film and processing costs and still have a life. Then in the 1970s I bought a complete secondhand darkroom outfit and boy was I hooked, a very old friend who is no longer with us taught me all the principles of B & W Processing and Printing. He was a member of the local Camera Club and persuaded me to join and enter club competitions. The first year I got Best beginner and the second year Best Intermediate, and I continued with the club until the early 1980s when work and home commitments left me little time for Photography. So I contented myself using Colour Slide Film until the Digital Revolution. Since then I have still played with B&W Imaging and keep a file of converted images for my own pleasure which I tweak as I feel necessary. So occasoinally I would like to share the odd image with you.

  2. What a glorious picture, and the clouds give it a magical feeling.
    Such wonderful memories! I visited St. Michaels Mount many times as a child...walking across when the tide was out. Oh my! so many years ago.
