I have recently moved from living in Camden for 4 years. I think the food market will be one of the places I miss most of all! Shot on my Olympus OM4 with Kodak Portra 400.

Weald, Kent, May 2014.
A surprisingly sunny Sunday afternoon in Kent definitely seemed like the perfect time for a family stroll and a long overdue outing for my X100. It still blows me away every time I pick it up and shoot with it!

Koh Phayam, Thailand, November 2013.
Back to basics…
I haven’t shot with 35mm for a long, long while now but in October last year I purchased an Olympus OM4 w/ 50mm f1.4 lens (originally manufactured between the early and mid 80’s). I used to own a cheaper model of this camera back in the day and always loved how small, simple and solid Olympus made their SLRs. I also believe that in the right light the old Zuiko lenses are some of the most underrated in existence - hence their relatively cheap price. One thing that will always draw me back to film again and again is how timeless the process is. There is no rush for me to finish all 36 exposures and get to the lab. When I’m in the mood I just pick up the camera and see what catches my eye. A roll can last a week, a month, 3 months, etc, etc… These recent photos span from Thailand in Novemeber ‘13 to the weekend just gone [Jan ‘14]. I’ve felt slightly removed from what first drew me to photography but shooting with 35mm again brings it all back.
