Oxford: Street portraits

Monday, September 12th, 2011

These images were all made with a new lens that I recently picked up. This is the first test roll, needless to say I love this lens!

[Tech info:] Mamiya M645 1000S, 110/2.8 lens, Kodak Portra 160 film. Hand developed and scanned by me.

I really like the John Lennon glasses and the whole retro vibe of this guy.

It was the white glasses that led me to stop this guy.

Ice-cream seller, Radcliffe Square, Oxford.


Harry Potter fans.

The long hooded robes that these girls are wearing caught my eye. It was a very hot day and I couldn't work out why they would be dressed this way. After asking them to stop for a photograph they pulled out a note book to write down this blog address and then out came the quill pen. At that point it struck me, they're Harry Potter fans! The Hogwarts crest is embroidered on their cloaks and they had just come from visiting the Divinity Schools behind them which was used for the hospital scenes in the first movie.
