“Pendolare” is the Italian verb to describe something being like a pendulum going back and for, and also used to describe commuting to and from work. About a year ago the office that the company I work for moved from an out of town and drive-able location to a new building in the city centre, meaning I could no longer drive to work and now had to catch a train. Because of this I realised I had time to read a lot more on the journey and also be able to take a camera with me and document my journey. For the last 12 months this is what I’ve been doing. I decided to go with the title as it happened to be a word I picked up during one of my Italian language classes and I thought it sounded a bit more interesting than boring old English.
Below are some of the images I made across the last year on my regular journey, they’re from a variety of film stocks and cameras and are both digital and analogue, including; Olympus OMD EM5, Olympus OM-1 and Canon AE-1 Programme, Ilford FP4 125 and Fomapan Classic 100. I hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Hello all, I’m back from Italy and that means normal service shall be resuming. First up is some street photography images taken with my Canon AE-1 Programme on Fomapan Classic 100 taken on the streets of Cardiff. Let me know your thoughts.
A few images on the streets of Cardiff (as usual) taken with my Canon AE-1 Programme on a roll of Fomapan Classic 100. Have a couple of rolls of this stuff left, it’s not my favourite black & white film so I’ve been very slow working through it, in fact I think I bought a brick of it over a year ago now, but it’ll do. Anyway have a peruse through these and let me know your thoughts.
