Victoria's Light

From the Eyes of David Splaine, Sr., Smoothly

Scroll down to content

This image is a time capsule extracted from Dave Splaine’s film camera. I don’t know when it was taken. The roll of Kodak Gold was in the camera when I received it and the image is one of two he shot. The capture happened after the vessel passed beneath the Newport Bridge. It is more than a photograph. I can hear Dave’s bellowing voice, barking out witty quips and delivering the syrupy punch lines that earned him the nickname “Smooth”. Dave loved Narragansett Bay and being with his friends and family there. As I scrolled through the images from the roll, I tried to recall when I had taken the image, then the truth dawned on me and I immediately put this post together. It’s a good way to start my day.

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.
