Besides the sea…

Film, Paper and Chemicals, Voigtlander

Walking along the sea-front in Helensburgh on a nice day and the town is a busy place, especially in summer. A place to sit and look at the sea. To eat ice creams, fish and chips, and maybe sandwiches. And maybe just to enjoy the view.

Loch Lomond Shores

Film, Paper and Chemicals, Voigtlander

Passing Loch Lomond I had my Voigtlander 35mm camera with me, plus a Russian 80mm lens.

I had just bought the lens, which is made using an established lens design – the Tessar. Its an old lens design based upon using four glass elements, which allows a simple design with high quality imaging.

I was really surprised at its quality. Its excellent and is staying in my camera bag.
