Just before the second lockdown began, I took the opportunity to wander the streets of the Old Town in Southampton, armed with the Lubitel 166b and the Kalimar light meter.

It was again an overcast day, but light levels were reasonable. I used a roll of Ilford black and white ISO400 film, which was processed at the box-speed by Harman Labs.

There were not many people about, and the pictures simply illustrate how quiet the streets are in these strange times. These pictures are not likely to win any awards, but from a technical point of view I am happy with the results, in particular that I am getting to grips with the light meter.
