Back in the long hot summer, Trip Man took a trip to Bath in Somerset with his trusty old Olympus Trip 35 camera and a roll of Ilford FP4 B&W film. The visit was filmed for the new Trip Man YouTube Channel.
Exploring the less obvious parts of the city with a classic 35mm film camera, we show places that make interesting photos, avoiding the usual tourist spots.
Beautiful Georgian architecture is just part of what makes this place special. Slowing down with a different point of view can give interesting results. We spent 2 days exploring the city, from the Georgian period, to the more recent, including some photographic history, such as Victorian Photographer William Friese-Greene who had a studio in Bath in the 1880's and was a pioneer of Cinematography.
We explore the Kennet and Avon Canal and River Avon as well as an artisan district, show a museum, gallery and cinema and recommend some pubs and places to eat and shop.
We used a Canon R6 with RF 24- 105mm F4L lens and Canon RP with RF 50mm F1.8 STM lens, to film the tour.
My Olympus Trip 35 was given to me by my father-in-law back in the 1980s. It has been fully serviced of course, finished in black leather, and has a Gordy's luxury leather wrist strap.
