I love using Film so much! I always have much more appreciation for film pictures, there's just some quality they have that makes them stand out from digital pictures. What kind of film did you use back then?

It was, I think, Ilford. Self wound from bulk into cassettes - I still have the winder. I might even have processed it myself or had it done at Boots the Chemist! This is nice because of the unusuall position of the lady on the right who looks like she is about to be borne away by the wind!

.... oh and most important - scanned by Target!

$2 per 100!

In my class so far all we've used is the Tmax 100 ISO B&W, thats all we have developer for... I've never used Ilford film though how does it stack up to Fujifilm and Kodak?

PS the closest Target with a Photo Center is a half hour drive for me, maybe one day I'll make a big trip down there and upload a truckload of negatives lol

Hi Jethro

Thanks for the link to this great picture. Any weather is good for a walk and you can see places in a different light! I like the couple watching the wave crashing against the wall, and the title.

It reminded me of the old poster for Skegness

All the Best Peter

The Really worrying thing with that poster Peter is that I either remember it or have seen it on a wall somewhere recently!!

I am frightened it may be the former.

I remember being here as a child and watching with delight as my mother got soaked through by a wave, somewhere on this stretch of 'prom'.

Thanks for the link *Peter

Jethro,,absolutely great pal..A blast back in time..simple pleasures were the highlights of many peoples lives..Thankfully, this sort of thing is making a comeback, as the English, fed up up of airport hassle, re-discover what we have at home..

The local authority found £60 million of our money to bolster up the sea defences..Just take a look at THIS..The annoying fact is, that the same local authority wont even fund a few thousand quid to replace the linkspan HERE

I'm off to watch the Grand Prix F1 final..My money is on Weber ;>)
