@veer66 I wrote an Android app called FediPhoto to quickly post photos to the Fediverse. I use it while I'm cycling. You ca add text, hashtags, and a map URL from OSM or Gmaps for your posts ahead of time. It is in the Play store and F-Droid. I need to update the app making OSM the default mapping URL. Currently the default is Google but you can change that.

London Eye reflecting in the pond in St James Park.

Taken with my Nikon D3100 digital SLR, 4 second shutter, and using the bridge as a tripod.

This is unedited straight from the camera. Once I saw the reflection in the water I had to try and get a shot.

This was Bristol Camera's shop in Bristol, UK. They have moved into the upstairs floor only of the adjacent building on the left. A Bakers has been and gone from the old photog shop since. The shop frontage still remains though.

The Temple of Temple Gate, Meads & Way etc.Bristol UK.


This then is my black&white film developing lab. πŸ™„

I've done 2 x 35mm & 1 x 120 so far.

Quite fraught is developing film again, especially with limitations on facilities/space/access. A huge buzz though! πŸ“·πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

This image is taken from a negative of a film that was badly damaged in attempt to get it loaded on to an old developing tank spiral that had seen better days.

I've just developed my first two 120 colour films with the Bellini C41 kit.

Water a little on the cool side at 32 deg, I had to top this up to 38 deg with water from the kettle.

Its a five stage process thats pretty intensive as you're doing it. Pre-Wash, Dev, Bleach, Fix, & Stabilise.

I have three more films to develop today. First two are hanging to dry and there are images, even looks like colour film should look. Once they're dry I'll scan & really see πŸ˜‰

Long time ago, I was around 16, I bought my first camera. An asahi pentax spotmatic with a super-Takumar 55mm 1.8 lens.
I was young and didn't know... didn't appreciate.
Fast forward (in more than one way) till today. I ran into an article singing praise of vintage lenses and the takumar 55mm. I have a converter m42 to a-mount so here's the result from two test-shots. very sharp and the colors give me a vintage feel..

Temple outside of Kaohsiung, Taiwan from a few months back. I loved that country so much and look forward to going back one day. Normally I keep politics out of it, but I really hope they're able to keep their independence in the future. Seeing what's happening in Hong Kong makes me uneasy about the present and the future
