Wow! Thank you all for your replies.
I too was coming round to the idea of abandoning the out of date film and buying some new film. I had seen the 7DayShop offer, shame it's out of stock. I'll see what else is available.
Ta for this I have seen the bill boards round here but it's not really...
Gosh I didn't realise that I hadn't been on since May.
Since then I've had some disappointments, the film I mentioned above came out totally useless. I had also put in two other rolls of film that I had found amongst the undeveloped film and they came out as blanks. So I was in a quandary...
What an interesting, and very useful, discussion.
Many years ago when I started using photography forums (fora??) I decided that I would not criticise or offer critique of any photographs posted because I felt, and still do, that I could not comment on something that was better than my effort...
Manchester Ship Canal from Latchford Locks,
Looking East - Thelwall Viaduct carrying the M6
and from the other end of the locks looking West
look carefully and you can see four bridges.
The nearest one is a disused railway bridge, then there is a swing bridge carrying the A50 and...
Saw this when walking the dog, no camera with me so had to go back later.
It's a day-lily according to my books, never seen one before even though I've walked the same route for several years.
Pentax K3 + Sigma 18-250.
It took a long time to get through the film and to get it developed. I went to Max Spielman again, for two reasons - convenience and cheapness, also I can it back within 10 days - if I'm lucky.
Here are some of the latest results. I think they prove that the camera is fine, perhaps the...
Acton Swing Bridge over the River Weaver
Dutton Railway Viaduct over River Weaver
Sluice at Dutton Locks (can it be called a bridge as it has a walkway across???)
All with with Pentax K3 and Sigma 18-250.
Apologies for slow response, not been on recently.
Thanks for that, quite reassuring to learn all that.
I have the fresh film in the camera and working my way through it - slowly. Will post the results when I've finished.
Thank you everybody for your comments and suggestions, all will be taken on board. I have ordered a film from "Fotosense" ,the cheapest I could find, and I shall have another go.
I should have said that I took the film to the local Max Spielman and had it developed on to a CD, it was then...
Reading the posts on this forum reminded me that I had a box of unused film somewhere in the house. I eventually found it in a dark corner of one of our wardrobes. There are some 10 colour films and 3 B&W, all are between 8 and 10 years old. I also found my Pentax P30N, I loaded the camera with...
If that's Holyhead mountain, or Mynydd Twr as it is known locally, then there would have been no need to "climb" it, it's a nice easy walk to the top at about 700 ft. (you probably knew that).
Nice shot, it reminds me we should go again soon.
