Gloucester cathedral & docks

Hannah and I spent the Bank Holiday weekend in Gloucester. It rained for most of the time, but I managed to take some reasonable interior shots of the cathedral.

These pictures were taken on Fuji Neopan 1600 film, using a Canon AE-1 Program camera with Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 and Canon FD 28mm f/2.8 lenses. I didn’t quite nail the exposure inside the cathedral (who’d have thought a 30-year-old light meter might be inaccurate?) and the thin negatives didn’t scan well. However, I hope they will print acceptably well in the darkroom.

The rain added a lot of atmosphere to the historic docks, so I walked around there after I had finished at the cathedral. As well as the 50mm and 28mm lenses I already mentioned, out here I also used a Canon FD 135mm f/3.5 for that little bit of extra reach.
