Photo TR : Rage @ Adventure Island, Southend : February

Postby robinschroder » Fri Mar 30, 2007 3:39 pm


Back in February, a couple of weeks after Rage opened, I took a trip over to Southend to check it out! It was quite a fun little ride, with a couple of brief pops of air both on the drop and on the descent down from the vertical loop. The elements kind of felt a bit too close together, although they certainly managed to cram a lot in to a small space... Not really all that intense - but it did make me a bit dizzy... I think all of these coasters over the years have broken my body!

I took along my trusty Olympus XA2 and Lomo LC-A film cameras loaded with slide film which I then had processed in normal negative film chemicals (this is called 'cross processing') for some totally mashed-up colours and contrast! Sorry for the delay in posting these - I only just got one of the films back. Enjoy!

Multiple exposure of my journey by train to Southend plus Rage's super-tight twisty track.

This is why I don't like digital cameras - you can't do the things film cameras can!
