Suzi Roma airport

I love this capture. It's in Rome airport, returning home without Truck after the epic weeks in Kosova (Kosovo) during July & August 1999. ( www.aidconvoy.net ) Taken with an old manual Nikon (can't remember which model) on Kodak Tri-X. You can also see a test strip from the darkroom, which I really like - accidental art! - here .

How low can you go?

19 Sep 2006 14
Extreme sports in Aberdeen. I haven't used it much yet, but this really isn't bad for a photo from a mobile phone. It's got lots of fringing at full magnification (not digital zoom) and isn't great in low light (which I've also heard is true of the low-spec Sony cameras it's presumably based on) but still... I like having it around for moments like... this.

Suzi with her new friend. I've shifted the colours a lot because my scanner went a bit crazy — what colour management? Taken on the old faithful Pentax ME-Super, 50mm.

Suzi & Jim

Jim Browning is an "adventurer", and a bit of a hero. Seen here with Suzi in Prishtinë, Kosova, in the midst of an unlikely and unplanned expedition to rescue truck from Albania. Jim hadn't been to Albania before, but nevertheless after we'd finished the aid delivery we were doing in Kosova, he agreed to take me across the mountains. My truck had been languishing there since dropping his propshaft just ouside Rubik. Six months on, and apart from the rats' nest in the heater he was basically okay. Made it as far as Bari in Italy before the improperly repaired prop fell off again, but we got him home and he did four convoys to Chernobyl after that :) Tales on www.aidconvoy.net Not sure which camera produced this, either the Pentax ME-Super or an ancient Nikon. Either would have had a 50mm lens and Kodak Tri-X or Plus-X.
