Worthing Wandering in Monochrome

Not a great title for a post, but then I am not sure this post is worthy of a great title….

I hope you have had a lovely Christmas break which involved some form or photographic loveliness. Mine was particularly lazy but did involve a photographic book I can’t recommend strongly enough. Not because it teaches about technique or informs about photography in any way that will be helpful in your everyday “snapping”. No because it has astonishing imagery the like of which we have not seen nor will be able to reproduce…..

See https://www.apolloremastered.com

In a frozen vault in Houston sits the original NASA photographic film of the Apollo missions. For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these originals.

Now we can view them as never before. Expert image restorer Andy Saunders has taken newly available digital scans and, applying pain-staking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Never-before-seen spacewalks and crystal-clear portraits of astronauts in their spacecraft, along with startling new visions of the Earth and the Moon, offer astounding new insight into one of our greatest endeavours.

The quality is astonishing…

The posts about the Queens Funeral Events and the updated workflow posts were meant to be me kickstarting writing (for the umpteenth time). It did not really happen. I hope to write a little more in the new year but I’m not promising of stressing (although I do have more new kit to discuss!)

But back to the (err umm) title of this post. Today (the 27th) was my first time out of the house since Christmas Eve. I shot some monochrome images (Acros simulation) on an X-T3 with the 35mm 1.4 whilst wandering on the seafront.
