There’s nothing like a walk on a beach, especially when it’s one of the long, windy, sea-birdy beaches like you find along the coast near Dunbar. We took ourselves off to Belhaven beach for such a walk, to clear the head, and to reset our fish supper metrics after a bad experience at Ballachulish.
I’m finding myself using a mix of digital and film cameras when I’m out. When I need to shoot quickly, it’s more likely that I’ll grab the Ricoh in my pocket, like when I noticed a figure walking across the scene before us:
I keep the Ricoh in aperture-priority mode at f/16 when shooting landscape, if the light is OK. It really is a fabulous camera, and more than once I’ve thought that if I could only have one camera, it would be this one. If I could only have no cameras, I’d still have my phone, which is a pretty amazing piece of kit.

I also took some photos with my Nikon FM, on Ilford Ortho Plus 80 film. I will edit this post once those have been developed and scanned.
