Father Thames in spate


Recommended Posts

A few from the Thames Path last Sunday, all with the Moskva 5 MF rangefinder on Ilford HP5+. The river wasn't flooded but the the flow was enough that the locks were closed to navigation.

there's something about this that doesn't look like an English river.

this was the only frame with significant light leaks, a pity as I think it was my favourite shot from the day.

That's a shame about the  leaks James ... why do  you think it was only apparent in the one  shot ... was it down to  the actual power and /or direction  of the light source ?  When did they stop producing  that camera ... ?

Not really sure about the leak, they are a bit unpredictable (maybe a pinhole in the bellows that just got illuminated on that shot). They were made in the 50's and very early 60's, mine is from 1958.

Nice set James, you seem to have and endless supply of cameras and lenses, just how many have you got?

I'd have to have a count, and even then it might not be definitive as how do you count ones that don't work? There are 5 or 6 regulars then a few that are used semi-regularly and others like the Moskva that are only occasionals.
