Victoria's Light

I did not have a great deal of time today, but I took a ride to Ocean Avenue in Newport.  The light was harsh from the noon sun.  I intended to do some long exposures of the sea, but there was no wind and no waves.  I feel very connected to Newport.  My mother’s family settled there in the late 1800’s after initially emigrating from Ireland to Oneida, New York.  I have pictures of my great grandfather standing in front of his Irish market with a handlebar mustache and leg of lamb hanging on the front of the store.  And pictures of my grandfather riding in a horse and buggy.  My grandfather passed away at a young age, leading my mother’s family into a good amount of turmoil.  Because of it, I really don’t know any of the many relatives I have in the City.  I am sure there are many.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
