Looks like my trip to Uist may be off......

⚛️ 🔒 🎩

Update: I'm dropping the B&W 35mm for this trip. So 3x Fuji XTra 400 + 3x Kodak Ektar 100 only.

Also, I am changing MF camera to the Mamiya C220 from the Yashica MAT124G. I have a part used roll in this camera, so makes sense to finish and continue with this camera. The C220 is bulkier and heavier but not so much as to be a burden.

Tutanota seems to be getting hit by ddos on a daily basis..?

I think I'll be switching to ProtonMail soon if this inability to access my email account continues...

@Tutanota - is there issues with servers today..?

no other problems elsewhere for me online, but not able to connect to mail.tutanota.com since last night..?

Just bought 3x Fuji Superia X-tra 400 colour neg 35mm - so will be adding that to the stock for the trip also.

Film and Camera's for my upcoming trip:

3x Kodak Ektar 100 x 36 + 2x (bulk rolled) Fomapan 400 x36 - 35mm

4x Rollei RPX 400 + 1x Ilford FP4+ - 120

Minox ML + Yashica MAT 124G

Spare battery ordered for the Minox, Yashica I use without a battery (meter only).

Next difficult choice will be camera/s and film choices.... 📷 🎞️

One camera will be the Minox ML - best pocket camera I have + probably the odd roll or three of various colour neg film I have.

2nd camera will either be the Nikon or Yashica MAT124G - more likely the 120 + FP4 or RPX400 B&W.

Well looks like we're on for the trip to the Isle of Uist in a couple of weeks time 🛶

Just hope we get a bit Indian Summer weather 😉 as it's quite damp to say the least at the moment...!

This is an adventurous location for Open Canoe travel, but has great possibilities as I found in a recce a couple of years ago.

The whole trip is fun, starting with a 3.5hr ferry from Mallaig.

Well today would have been my Outfitting day and the beginning of a few weeks of Adventures in the Canadian wilderness - alas not to be - at least for this year... 🌲🌲🌲🛶🛶🌲🌲🛶🌲🌲🛶🛶🛶🛶🌲🌲🌲🌲

Picked, cleaned and Pickled a jar of Nasturtium seedpods.

Collected a LOT of the seedpods from our Nasturtiums this afternoon - mostly to save for seed and next years flowers, but a handful went into a small jar with some cider vinegar and sea salt, a couple of the Dill seed heads and an odd Dill leaf. To be used as a Caper substitute.

They go great in Potato Salad as a peppery 'twang'...

I can't follow you or generally see your IG because you're in Private mode and I'm not registered.

If I use Pixelfed it will be just a place to curate images to which can then federate via mastodon...

@Tutanota - is it possible to use the UK/European date format rather than the confusing American format in Calendar..?

In the web client.

Adaptions now made to the LF darkcloth.

Elastic added across the centre/edge with a 'fastex' buckle as a clip.

Should be able to use 'hands-free' now and not have any issues with the wind blowing it about...
