This picture was taken on one of my favourite little basic film compacts, a Konica POP, which I have
bought in a few different colours as they are so cheap to buy and so I choose the colour to use depending
upon my mood at the time of loading the film. It only has the one shutter speed of about 1/125 and two
apertures for sunny and flash, which are round the f8 mark I would think. Anything from about 3 feet away
is generally in focus and the lens is quite good, which is the main thing.

The print was taken on a stroll around a newly found small church graveyard near me - what is it about these places that attract photographers?

Using an arms length as a guesstimate of about 3 foot, I took the photo of these two watering cans that caught my eye. One of them is a little bit out of focus, so I should have come back from it a little and being a film user, I generally donít machine gun off loads of exposures, so this was the only one taken.

As for the print, I printed it on Ilford MG RC Pearl, in Ilford chemicals in a Nova slot processor. I printed it slightly darker than maybe I normally would but I wanted to replicate the scene as I remember it. The foliage around the cans were a little bright with highlights on the print, so some burning in was required just about alround to try to hold them back a bit. Other than that it was just a case of finding the right exposure that I liked.
