Day 4 of our trip to Cornwall, and sunshine, blue sky’s and warm weather. Time for the beach!
Knowing we were going to be spending a good portion of the day doing not much else but sitting on and playing in the sand, I decided my best bet was to take the Konica Mermaid. Its a camera I shall be writing a review on in due course, so I shan’t say too much about it now. At least short of mentioning that my relationship with it was to be damaged at the first hurdle by the little switch on the back the selects the panoramic mode breaking, thus sticking the camera in pano mode without any means to switch it to full frame. No bother, I had my trusty multi tool with me, so savagely removed the pano blinds. The camera is now officially destined for the scrap heap, but it at least survived long enough for me and Hannah to take a few photos of Connie playing in the sand etc. it actually takes OK photos… Though arguably, nothing mind blowing really.
The real treat of the day was going up on the cliffs in the evening. Hannah’s parents agreed to baby sit so me and Hannah went to watch the sunset. I can’t begin to tell you how lovely an evening it was!
Then up the cliffs we went
I even took a few photos on my iPhone, this one I was particularly pleased with.
At the top of the cliffs there was some sort of transmitter or the like. Don’t know what it was, but it was pretty much the only thing that could make me turn around from the view in the other direction.
I could have stayed up there for a lot longer, but it was getting dark and we thought we best get back to the house. Beach fun with Connie then a lovely walk with the wife, it was hard to argue with that as being a wonderful day!
Once again, photos taken with Leica M6 with 50mm cron and Leica iiia with Voigtlander 28mm f3.5, developed and scanned by UK film lab.
