Seagull, TLR, results.

I hadn't expected too much from the Seagull, especially as this example was a bit battered. But it surprised me, by returning twelve out of twelve results from a single roll of rather time expired film, a sign of a slight reluctance to trust it.

It's a bit weighty for what it is, the viewfinder is dull and the magnifier a bit nasty, but hey, it behaved itself when it counted.

At Durdle Dor, Dorset

As with most 120 format cameras, the 75mm lens gives a fairly short depth of field close in to the subject, allowing you to isolate the background in this agreeable way. Any Lomographers wishing to try one might be disappointed, as the results it produces are bit too good for that. There's not even any particular vignetting towards the edges.

Stuck at home and looking for a long read?

Of Our Own Device is a spy tale interwoven amongst true events culminating with the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Meticlously researched and utterly true to life, the book is very particular with its cadence. It is both spy and romance, but mostly a study of deceit, internationally, between friends, lovers and ourselves.
