Images of St Agnes taken with a Praktica TL 5B
While at home last week I used dad’s film camera to take images of St Agnes, Cornwall. The camera was a Praktica TL 5B, I was using a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens and some expired, ISO 200, 35mm colour film.
My first shot (that came out) was of Stippy Stappy, a famous landmark in the village.
St Agnes Beach (Trevaunance)
St Agnes Parish Church
A few from/of St Agnes Beach (Trevaunance)
St Agnes Harbour (well, what’s left of it)
And now for something
completely slightly different.
Back to the sea (and cliffs)
Some pictures from Watergate Bay
Back home: some still life - our router and PC taken wide-open at f/1.8
Back to St Agnes Beach (Trevaunance) on another day, 19th Sept 2008, I think.
I got my feet wet after this photo, I was standing on top of the ramp down to the beach and I avoided one big wave that came a little way over; I went back to the same place only to have an even bigger wave (that I failed to escape) come and get my feet and bottoms of my trousers wet. At least it wasn’t cold but I did have to walk a few miles home with wet/sandy feet. The things I do for art… or something like that.
On the long way round to the village, up Rocky Lane then along a small footpath, there is a nice view of the sea and headlands up the coast from St Agnes.
I chose this way home as it led me past the Wheal Friendly engine house.

I wanted to take one more picture, but alas, I ran out of film. Never mind.
