Hever Castle

…or, “In which I underexpose almost a whole roll”.

We took a trip to Hever Castle in the recent blistering heat, and I thought it might be nice to take a camera along. I took my trusty Cosina PM-1, a 28mm lens and a circ-pol, loaded with Kodak 200, one of the rolls of film that came in my recent grab bag from 4 Corner Store.

The results were mixed, but I almost universally under-exposed the whole roll. I was trying to compensate for the bright conditions, but I guess having the polariser on there too, mucked it all up. I managed to salvage a couple of photos, but they’ve come out very grainy. Not sure if I’ll bother with Kodak 200 in future, seems a bit of a cheapy film. Which is shame, as I’ve got 2 rolls of Kodak 400 Max in the bag too.

Let me know what you think – the wolf is my favourite.
