These photographs were taken with a Minox IIIs, loaded with own cut Agfa Optima 100, which was one of my preferred film negatives, up there with Kodak 100 and Fuji Superia. As I had a good load of free time on my hands, I used to roam the streets of Watford (Herts) and snap away.
Watford was a very nice town to live in, the High Street providing all sorts of good stuff (incl. foods) to all sorts of residents and tourists as well. Historically, plenty of old architecture to see and photograph, and if you are a choosy one, you can always take the Silver Link from Watford Junction and the next stop is St. Albans, a legend of which I cannot tell anything new to any of you, I guess.
Pictures here are from 2000 and 2001. I do not reside in this town anymore, and it is my understanding that the High Street and other parts of town suffered a severe transformation. I do have good memories, the Stella pints at Yates, the morning coffee at Barracuda (Joel, hope you’re doing fine), buying film at Jessops (long gone, I believe), have breakfast at The Hogwash (Jason Keen, best friend), The Harlequin shopping centre, and so many other places and people, dear to me. Like I always say…good old days gone.
