A shot of my son, walking in Derbyshire last Sunday.

This is a rather unusual shot (these days, anyway): so full technical details. Dynax 9 with 85mm lens, and Agfapan 400. Film developed in Rodinal, and printed on Ilford Multigrade fibrebase paper in a Magnifax 4 enlarger. The black margin is not digital - it's the film rebate showing round the edge of the negative, as the Magnifax negative carrier is a little oversized.

So... If anyone suggests that the border is sloppy, poorly aligned, or irregular - do one better in a darkroom, and I'll listen. This is proper, full-frame, uncropped, hand-knitted, minimally tweaked photography. Just like grandad used to do.

And the sense of achievement is lovely. Buy a film today.

Great location for walking John and seeing the odd bird Wink Ron.

Ron -

I know about the walking: but as I'm slightly short-sighted, and only wear glasses for driving, I've never been much up on wildlife of any sort.

The day was a bit of an "exercising dad" event - as you can probably see from the picture, Danny is well capable of bounding up the hillsides!

No - I wouldn't head up there either these days
