A day spent on Dartmoor around Wistman's Wood with my Thornton Pickard Imperial camera from the 1900s. I wanted to try X-ray film in the field for landscapes -and was pleased that every image came out with at least some degree of success. Unlike the 4 images I took of Wheal Betsy Engine house near Tavistock which were ruined by a split in the bellows, of the 10x8" New Countess camera, leaking light onto the film. Fortunately I have found someone who can make new bellows so I'll have to return when the camera is repaired and try again.
