Harbour, Fowey, Cornwall

#Fowey in #Cornwall – Pentax Espio 120mi #pentax #35mm #film – Vintage film cameras

I have never been one for bobbing about in a little sailing dingy – I prefer something with an engine. Power, speed – the age of sail has been dead for over a century. Little harbours like Fowey make me laugh – pretty little boats with pretty little sails. The perfect place to paint a commercial painting for the tourists. Hahaha. :)

Fowey is a small town, civil parish and cargo port at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall, England, United Kingdom – an over priced middle class refuge, full of people who can’t afford Sandbanks or a ‘Sunseeker’. 😉

These photographs above was taken using a Pentax Espio 120mi, which I obtained from a charity shop for £1.50 and is point-and-shoot, mid-range, 35mm film camera. The Espio is an autofocus unit with automatic exposure settings and a built in flash unit.

About peter

'Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish.
