I had been getting withdrawal symptoms from my photography whilst in isolation. It hasn't exactly been 100% isolation mind you; my real job is with a NSW Government Emergency Service and I am still working.
In my time at home I have taken photos of the garden and have been revisiting archives to rework some older files from a few years ago.
I have got a few films to have developed and scanned also. An expired Fuji Velvia in 120 (which I have to post off to get done) a Fujicolor Superia 100 and an AGFA APX 100 black and white. I am not sure if my Lab is taking any orders (mind you I have not phoned them to find out ; that might help do you think? hahahaha) I have a Fujicolour Superia 800 in my Canon 300V to complete but the bloody batteries went flat and I don't have any spares. I think I'll have to do a little trip for those.
One thing that being in isolation has taught me. In future, I need to drag myself out of bed early to catch the Sunrises and plan evenings out for the Sunsets a lot more! This was the year that I wanted to start some night shots of the Milky Way and after hours street photography too. I guess it is not the middle of the year yet so 'hopefully' I will be able to fulfil those wants before the year is out.
I'm always browsing Facebook Marketplace and Gum Tree for film cameras but I have noticed that since this bloody virus has been out and about, there are not many film cameras going up on line in the local area. Probably a good thing because I need to re-arrange the camera room a little. Once I see how much cupboard space I have spare, I will consider the need to fill it with something interesting!
In the meantime, here are some of the photos that I have taken recently and some that I have re-worked from the archives.
I hope you're all well and healthy. Look after each other!

|From the Archives - Gregadoo, just outside Wagga Wagga during the last drought. This was a|
stinking hot afternoon. I had taken one of my daughters for a driving lesson and, of course, I always
took my camera with me.
Above and below - Mount Sugarloaf from our frontyard. Very low cloud hanging around on this day.
Taken with my Canon 90D and a Canon EF 300mm zoomed right out which actually gave me a
focal length of 480mm on the APSC camera.
|From the Archives - The Bogey Hole - Newcastle, Australia. 11 years ago I didn't have much access to editing|
software as I have today. This one came up a treat!

Colour Efex Pro software has really highlighted the vintage interior of this car!
|From the Archives - I really love this photo of a shift worker getting a bite to eat at Harrys|
Cafe de Wheels in Newcastle. I was out for a walk in my meal break as well one nightshift
when I took this.
