I have wanted to go to Formby for ages. I had seen photos of the dunes and wanted to see them in person. It seemed so different from other beaches I have visited in the UK. But which camera to take? I should have taken one that I didn’t care about due to the amount of sand flying through the air, but no, I took one I really liked. I did swap the lens from the f1.4 Canon to a Jupiter one and told myself under no circumstances would I take the lens off or open the back. I stuck to that rule.
I loaded the camera with Ilford HP5 the week before for a trip to Worcester and was surprised when the counter went above the expected exposure count. I decided to stop using it in Formby at that point. When I developed the film, I found this multi-exposure shot.
Well, miraculously the camera just sorted itself out and all those shots came out.
I really like the results and want to go back for another wander at some point…when I save up the cost of the petrol.
