Scottish Stoater

A collection of photographs and notes



  1. Scottish Sunset: Mountain Peaks from Neilston

    The light nights are here! The kids are in bed and I still have daylight to play with. Tonight, I decided to nip out with my camera.

  2. Goodbye Fujfilm, it's been a blast

    Knowing when to let go of a product you love is never an easy decision, especially when it comes to something as personal and important as photography gear.

  3. Film Roll #11

    Some shots from September 2022 to January 2023 shot on my Ricoh 500 G with Fujifilm C200.

  4. A wander around Glasgow with my new camera

    Some shots of a dark and cold January night in Glasgow City Centre

  5. Breathing new life into an old iPod Classic with Rockbox

    Breathing new life into an old iPod Classic with Rockbox is a great way to give your old device a new lease on life.

    Some photos from a weekend gravel cycling in the Scottish Highlands

  2. Colourising Neilston Low Station

    This is my first proper attempt at colourising/reviving an old photo.

    I bought a Ricoh 500 G in excellent condition off eBay, repaired it and shot a roll.
