Day 5 and we decided to go back to the fun park. A game of crazy golf had been decided weeks before, and today was the day.
Having taken the Leica M60 on the holiday, and not shot with it at all, I decided this was the day. I’m actually pretty pleased with the shots I got around the park with it, there are few that are much more than family snaps, but actually – as mentioned in my M60 review – that pretty much what I’d use it for if I owned on.
Joy of joys, traveling back from the fun park we had a blow out. A loud bang and Hannah saying “erm, the car is pulling to the left” was the first clue, the second was the very flat tire. After the problems with the MAF sensor on the way down, a flat tire felt like a real kick in the teeth. A quick mooch on google and there turned out to be a tire shop in Newquay, which was only 6 miles away. Space saver fitted and off we hobbled. Of course, tiers take a little while to fit, so we did what most people do when they go to Newquay and headed for the
beach pub. The nice surprise upon entering the pub was that it had a pub garden, but not just any pub garden, this place had a cliff top garden with views down the coastline! Not bad!
Ordeal over, and a few £££ lighter (low profile tires are expensive… Who knew?!) we headed back to the house for some dinner.
These evening photos were of course taken on the Leica iiia with voigtlander 35mm 3.5 and Leica M6 with 50mm summicron. Still all with Portra 400, developed and scanned by Uk Film Lab.
Cheers for looking, only one day to go!
