Facebook Memories flashed up a picture at the weekend that I’d taken a few years ago whilst visiting a friend in Kilburn, and it reminded me of the time-consuming wonder of the internet when curiosity gets the better of you.

This is how last year I came to own a Kodak Bantam Colorsnap II, which were produced from 1959 to 1961. Old Kodak amateur cameras are pretty much ten-a-penny so I wasn’t initially very excited […]Read more "An Attempt at Developing Old Kodak Verichrome Pan 828 Film"
Yesterday me and a few friends were supposed to be braving the drizzle and going off for a walk around Guildford and Box Hill, but arriving at Waterloo we found autumnal weather (!) had sabotaged South West Trains services, so a quick re-think on our destination was required. Having previously researched near-London walks, I remembered […]Read more "Autumnal Walk on the Oak Trail"
