Shrewsbury Folk Festival

Just had a fun weekend with Steve and Tree at Shrewsbury Folk Festival. We didn’t like the fact that our campsite was a very long work from the festival site, we did like the town, we didn’t like the dreadful weather, we did like the New Rope String Band.

I went shopping and bought Ann some new miniature shoes to collect from a ‘vintage’ shop, and I bought a Zeiss Ikon Nettar from an antique shop for ten pounds, a result. Let’s see how the roll of film I put through it comes out!

That’s Ann, Neil, Pam, Jackie, Dave, Steve and Tree.. I love this picture. I am going to use my Lomo Fisheye to take such pictures whenever and however I can. I did turn the flash on if you have this camera and want to try it, you need the flash to fill in the shadows. (The camera has a black area in flash mode where the lens blocks the flash, but in daylight this isn’t obvious)

The Pimms bus at GuilFest wasn’t terribly original but it was so incredibly RED! I have a fisheye version taken on the Lomo as well, I’ll post that as well. This was taken with a 1960s German Voigtlander CL, scale focusing, set the lens and speed with a lightmeter and then guesstimate distance and click away. The film is very saturated, but actually the light was so intense that in fact reality was pretty colour saturated that day!

Guilfest 2006

Had a great time at GuilFest2006 with Ann, Tree, Steve, Neil, Pam, Dave and Jackie. Highpoints for me were Hugh Cornwell, Gary Numan, the Stranglers and the Ukele Orchestra of Great Britain. Incredibly hot, my thermometer on my lightmeter recorded 36 degrees Celcius as we sat in the blistering sun. I wore SPF 50 cream all week. Some reviews here: Reviews of GuilFest 2006

I am working hard now on completing the Gwenthia pdf (www.gwenthia.org) for the Continuum convention next week. I have already had 500 postcards printed, I am doing some A3 prints now, and Loz and I hope to have the full pdf complete by midnight Sunday for reproduction.
