Film Friday

More shots from the dynamic Minolta duo.

Sticking with the Minolta Riva 35EX loaded with fujifilm Expedia 400.


I took it with me to the Spoon at Cramlington and to Druridge Bay,  so regular readers of The Universe blog will recognise them.

  1. What can I say? I remember the original ‘spoon’ pics’, but film is just so warm and wonderful.
    I’m rolling around, wallowing in film nostalgia now. (Your fault…)
    If I had more money, I would buy a used Canon T-90, and recapture those wonderful days of film.
    I might just do that anyway. You have put the bug in my brain!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Just had an email from Ebay to say it sold at asking price, which I thought was a little too much, for the condition. So I had a thought, and decided that if I can afford £50 for a camera, I will give it to Dani instead.
        Better use of the money, I reckon.
        Cheers, Pete.

  2. It has a lot of vignetting and it is 35mm film but somehow that all makes it more gentle and these photographs makes me feel in a way more human than your wonderful rollei. I wonder is if a kind of personal fear of so much perfection. Anyway, lovely trip!

    1. Thanks Francis, I know what you mean. I am favouring the little compact, maybe I’m lazy, but don’t have to think about settings, just compose and shoot, the only decision available is whether or not to have flash. So much to think about with the rollei, but each has its merits, and no down sides!
