Weight and Stuff Report – 28 February 2011

Down a wee bit today.

I had my first roll of film taken with the Olympus Trip process today. As I suspected, I need to either arrange for better light, or work more on picking the right aperture and focus zone. Or both, which would be better. Anyway, I’ve scanned in one of the less bad pictures, given it a bit of a boost in Lightroom, and here it is for your amusement:

Shaft!

Shaft!

No, it’s not a reference to the movie, but a monument of sorts to a bit of Newcastle’s industrial history. This site, by the city walls near Gallowgate, used to be a lead processing factory – they made lead powder for pigments, and lead shot, which was made by dropping molten lead down a shaft, which accounts for the word on the ground.
