... That light leak is troubling to me, as her owner, but I'll take a look at her when she comes back.
The light leak is not from the camera as such, rather from the improperly wound film. The take-up spool must have lifted on one corner, since the film had not wound straight on the roll. Next time, I'll unload it in the dark bag, just in case. It would be worthwhile having some sort of locater pin to keep the take-up spool square.
Great shots, even with the light leaks. How tall do the Pohutakawa's get? I'm seeing maybe 40ft (12.5m) of growth. That's some big Christmas tree!
There are different types, from small to quite large. They grow out as much as up and tend to have many trunks. They grow pretty much anywhere, right down to the edge of the beach, clinging to cliffs. Their roots will go everywhere, as I believe city officials in San Fransisco have found..... The are nicknamed that NZ Christmas Tree as they tend to flower around this time of year.
Paul, you can't take a bad photo, can you? :cool: Seriously, you made this humble box camera proud!
Good job you're not local, or I'd have to buy you a beer or two :p
