I shot quite a few rolls over Christmas, but a few got left in cameras halfway through. In the case of this film, it got left in the Leica M7. The purchase of an Leica M3 and a few other distractions has meant I just haven’t picked up the M7, at least outside of making comparisons with it and the M3. And so the film stayed, at least until this morning when I decided I was happy to sacrifice the final 7 frames to see what on earth I had pointed it at.
I was quite happy to find it was shot over the course of a little family day me Hannah and Connie went on to some very local attractions. Firstly, Worcester Cathedral makes up part of the view from the top floor of my house, it’s probably only half a mile away, yet I rarely venture inside. This is despite the fact that it is actually a fairly major landmark. King John – as this evening’s TV has coincidentally reminded me – is entombed there.
Even closer to my house is the Commandery Museum , A musuem that is facinating in its layers of history, but to me, is also quite photogenic.
So that’s that, a few lost shots from my Christmas break, it was lovely getting them back from the D&P today a little reminder of a lovely day out with the family. And I do love the shots from the 50mm V4 Summicron and XP2, its a combo that does a lot well in my world!
