Film Friday ~ April & May

Random shots taken on the Contax Aria on Kodak Ultramax film.

I do like a sparkling rosΓ© once in a while

A glass of I Heart.

I planted these violas last spring and they’ve resurrected themselves this spring too, which is why I suppose, their nickname is Johnny Jump-ups.

Phil sits on a stool in the conservatory to have a cuppa and read the paper. 🀣


I am enamoured of the views from our upstairs windows, I like all the angles and lines of the urban landscape at the back, and I especially like Cheryl’s washing line as it’s so colourful. πŸ™‚

The front bedroom window is my favourite though for all the trees and our Happy Eater Tree when it blossoms.

My first attempt at photographing the grandkids on the contax.

Liddy and Cal

My spider plant is taking over the bathroom, not sure what I’m going to do with all the babies.

Mum and babies

When the weather is kind I go on walks around our area.

The secret lake, and distant swans.

Hmmm. Not the done thing.

Union Jack

On the whole we don’t fly our flag everywhere as in America, a good explanation as to why is HERE.

On a trog over the railway bridge to go to Lidl at Pelaw i saw the trailing foliage over a lot of people’s back garden fences.


That’s it for this time,

Stay tooned πŸ™‚

  1. I’m definitely not sure about the flag in someone’s garden. I don’t know that there’s anywhere local that you can see one flying, although there was a lot of Union Jack bunting around at the jubilee.

  2. Wonderful photos! My spider plant has lots of babies too, I just planted some of them. Your grandkids are adorable, and your views are fantastic, I love the view with the clothes hanging, we don’t see it here in Canada where they all go directly to the drier. Happy July! πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely images from that camera! Flags….a few people fly them here now, never used to see them, and I suspect when I see a flag that the householder is more likely than not to have anarchist tendencies. Something for some academic to study one day!


  4. You got some pretty gorgeous colours with Ultramax. I will have to give it a go. Love the article about flag flying. I can only really speak about flag flying in Toronto, Ontario and it is pretty hit and miss…more miss really! The hubby hates the “new” Canadian flag preferring the original one so the red maple leaf would NEVER fly here!

    1. I know portra now the bees knees, but ultramax and gold do a great job. And are not as expensive so there’s that. We don’t have a flag here, that was a rarity for our area. Cheers Mary!
