We have been putting off going to Camera Obscura & World of Illusions in Edinburgh for years but we’re glad we finally did; the place is like photography porn (and it’s fun for the kid).
After carrying Big Boy around Edinburgh yesterday I fancied travelling light and the old X-Pro 1 with the little 18mm f/2 fit the bill perfectly. All these images will need a click to see the full image.
Located near Coatbridge Central train station this place is great on a nice day. Lots of old chunky pieces of heavy metal machinery and plenty of fresh air. Also some nice interactive stuff indoors if the weather turns on you.
I took the Big Boy RB67 with me and a couple of posers for something to point at 😀
As is often the case these were shot on HP5 and cooked in Rodinal for 11 minutes at 1+50
Not much to report here. Had a fairly lazy day. We chilled in the morning. Went for a Parma Violet latte and Hot Chocolate at Cafe Rawnchy in Dennistoun. I had the Lavender and White Chocolate cake yum yum yum. Shot some stuff on the X-Pro1 with the VM 35mm f/1.4 and there’s even an iPhone shot in there from when the M mount lens couldn’t get close enough.
