Olympus OM10, roll film and a darkrooom.

Looking out of my office window at the torrential rain and thick fog it reminded me of the old days of grainy film. This prompted me to dig out an old Olympus film camera, 2 rolls of TMAX 400, now 9 years out of date, a waterproof coat and head out in to the hills to shoot bleak forrest scenes.

My chemicals and old darkroom equipment were also 10 years out of date so I wasn’t really holding out much hope for anything spectacular but when I saw the ‘thin’ over exposed negatives hanging up drying in my bathroom I was really excited with the results.

With only 72 frames shot here are a few I really like.
