Against my better judgement I did try to take a picture of a steam train as it came in to the platform for just a few minutes …. of course it was gone before I was ready to even load the dark slide never mind press the shutter. So I moved on to the engine shed where there are many stationery objects better suited to “slow photography”.
I used my 90mm lens to get this image of oil cans on a window shelf with light streaming in through the window.

I also tried to frame some images of the massive loco’s being worked on in the shed, but the light levels were so low that it was really difficult to see the image on the ground glass – so I left that subject until I’ve fitted the fresnel lens which just arrived in the post.
The film was developed in HC-110, scanned on an Epson V700, and toned in Lightroom.
