Lucky Dip #2

Following on from the first Lucky Dip (colour film not back from the lab yet!) I sent one of the Grandsons down to select two films for me from the odds-n-sods box to use that day. He returned with two rolls of Kodak P3200, recently expired, but two the same!

It was the first sunny weekend of the year too … a fast film wouldn’t have been my first choice. However, I picked up the Nikon F801, a rather dubious-quality 70-210 zoom lens and headed into the garden. Wide open at f4/f5.6, even rated at 1600 I was getting 1/4000th and 1/8000th regularly. Time for some shallow focus telephoto photography using the various plants in flower and trees in blossom.
