Lunch hour session: Oxford

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Here are some images from a roll of film I used to test my handheld spot meter last autumn. The vintage Jaguar car is owned by a german couple who had driven it from Germany. I was walking back to my office when I spotted it parked on St Giles. The owners had just parked but needed change for the parking meter – they were 20p short. I didn’t have change for £1 but I did have 20p so I gave it to them in return for being able to photograph the interior. They were very flattered that I was so interested in their car, unfortunately the shadows inside and the black dashboard meant there shot was far from ideal but that’s how it goes sometimes.

[Tech info:] Camera: Mamiya C330f | Lens: 80/2.8 | Film: Fuji Acros 100

The owners told me that the stereo was not the original so I made sure that it didn't feature in this shot.

I never get tired of photographing old Brooks saddles.

Shard of light

Shard of light. I'd often see this on my way back to my office at the end of lunch break and on this occasion I decided to finally photograph it.
