Intake Quarry, Middleton

Intake Quarry, Middleton

I spend far too much time being distracted by various film cameras, trying to learn new development techniques or printing in the darkroom to really concentrate on any one thing at the moment. I realised that I’m actually missing out on opportunities that I should be making the most of when I take more than two cameras out with me – if the digital isn’t close to hand, so that it can be in and out of my Messenger bag quickly between rain showers, then I just leave it in my backpack and miss out on the best light.

I should have made more images on the day that I took these at Intake Quarry near Middleton, but the images that I missed later in the day when I was happy just to experience the changes in light and weather reminded me that I need to be a bit more disciplined about my bag packing and slim down my camera choices.
