Now that it's November I expect to receive some Christmas cards soon!

Christmas Post

This is a picture of Gordy the postman who dressed up as Father Christmas every year to deliver the post in the build up to Christmas. Until recently I used to live just round the bend in the road, and loved seeing Gordy dressed like this. He's retired now so unless another postman carries it on, this sight will no longer exist. 

This picture was taken on some expired Tmax film I don't normally use, but it was all I had at the time. The negs are rather flat, but I've managed to get a reasonable scan out of it. Where I'm living now, there is no room for a darkroom, which is such a shame as I now have the time to print. Where I used to live, I had a darkroom, but little time to use it. I had thought, well that's it for film, I'll just have to shoot digital and learn to print that squirty stuff called 'inkjet'. But I love film too much to give it up.
