Hello,
Whatever the plan it is hardly a match for what has been ripped out of the local countryside. People who know the price of every thing but the value of nothing springs to mind.
It will be impossible to replace something that took millennia to develop naturally. It makes me think of what has been done across the country to accommodate modern agricultural machines(tractors) and their usage. :(
Trevor.

Hi Martin,

Yes I saw that too : https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-55193809



Shame. I have a word for people who do that kind of thing - it rhymes with people who work at Barclays and HSBC :shock:

Ah yes, philistines.

Whoever did that is truly disgusting. I hope they get hammered in the courts.

A golden moment yesterday, snapped, with my lens poking out of the bathroom window … that was still cold enough! (He says, after some tidying in the garden for 3 hours...) It's one of the reasons I love living here (despite the frost on the inside of the windows, the leaky conservatory, the fence that needs replacing, the heating system that isn't...)

All the best

Hi Martin,

Are you done with organising all the old negatives from your younger years ?? It seems somebody thought the world may have thousands of rolls of film to sort through. See here :

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the link.

No I'm not done. However I'm not sure I have much more that will be worth posting, it is mostly typical family and holiday stuff. I didn't have a lot of time to roam the countryside taking photos after I started 85A in the mid-70s.

Also with my Canon SLR I changed from home-processed B&W to commercially processed colour negative. Scanning them now I'm quite disappointed with the quality compared with the earlier B&W stuff taken with the Konica rangefinder. I can't really understand why I ever changed to an SLR in first place, and now of course I have switched back to the Fuji X100F without noticing the loss at all.

In any event, that gadget is intended for rolls of film. All my negatives have been cut into strips of 6 for storage in negative albums, so it wouldn't be much help.

I haven't really had any problems with the film strip holders for the Epson scanner. The big problem is DUST and STATIC, even the tiniest speck becomes enormous when scanned at hi-res. I have an air-blast duster, do scanning only in damp weather, wear only a cotton shirt, etc., but still have problems. This gadget appears to do nothing to solve the dust problem, which seems to me to be by far the biggest issue making neg scanning such a pain. The so-called dust-removal software is useless.

Have I posted this one here before?



Trawsfynydd Nuclear Flask Tranship Yard, August 1969.

That was scanned at low-res with the old scanner before I got the Epson. It would be worth looking out the neg and scanning it again.

cheers,

Martin.

I'm thankful that I quickly tired of colour slides, even though they were touted as what serious photographers took, and took to colour prints, which were starting to reach decent quality, in the 1980s. I kept the prints in albums, and find they scan quite well. Here's one I've just scanned dating from 1993, up Liathach in Glen Torridon:

Hi Martin,

No, I don't remember your shot of Trawsfynydd, although I have seen several others over the years.

There has been a renewed interest in film cameras in the last few years both in 35mm and 120 formats. I think I missed an opportunity to make some money by buying lots of equipment and re-selling it now the prices have gone back up again. It is seen as retro and cool to carry a film camera - especially if you have one that needs no batteries. I seem to remember seeing a light-meter app for your phone too.

Dust. Yes, always a problem - and Newton's rings on glass holders. We used to have a high end scanner at work that cost many thousands. It had some kind of blower pump ( or was it a vacuum ? ) and the negative was squeezed through some kind of oil bath onto the scanner unit.

Known as wet gate printing in the film laboratory industry and used extensively from the late 1970s to make prints from negatives.   It was also used on telecines to transfer print or neg onto video.   Not too nice a process,  requiring good ventilation.  The ideal liquid to use was Perchloroethylene,  or "Perc",  quite a hazardous substance.

Hi Jim,

Yes, that sounds familiar. I can remember the smell now - like dry cleaning fluid. I seem to remember lots of work being carried out for museums and places like John Rylands library here in Manchester.

There were later developments with lower health risks. Drum scanners were made by some of the big photographic names in the 80's and 90's I seem to remember.

Rob

Christmas Day at the fish pass:



Recently they had been pouring concrete for the fish slots, but it's now all underwater again. It should have been finished 6 months ago, but this year's Covid problems have pushed them so far behind that they are into the flood season again. It could be like this on and off for the next 3 months.

Notice that the weir is almost invisible -- in these conditions the fish don't need a pass!

Martin.

Martin,
In these conditions I don't think the fish will be bothering to come :(
