Thirlestane Castle, in the Scottish Borders, is the venue for the annual classic car show by the Borders Vintage Automobile Club. I went there in 2018 with my Minolta Dynax 4, shooting Lomography 400. The first thing that surprised me was that, among all those beautiful vintage cars, I seemed to be the only person shooting film.

What gives? Surely a classic car show should be a honeypot for vintage cameras? But no. I saw lots of phone cameras, lots of Canons and Nikons, but no-one shooting film. Oh well, their loss. I had my phone camera too, and I took some pretty passable record shots with it, but nothing that came close to matching the atmosphere of these film shots.
