    Oxford always looks great.

      I really like the Ilford emulsions (especially Pan F and FP4) but Tri-X just pips HP5 for me and it’s quite a bit cheaper!

    That should say ‘Ilford’

    Nice composition with the steps curving through the frame. Is this Whitehaven?


    • John Pickles says:

      Thanks. It is indeed Whitehaven. I was there the other day and took a series of photo’s as a kind of ‘mini project’. just trying to document everyday scenes from around the harbour. More coming soon.


  4. Great composition and perspective! Love this series!!
