More Week 41 – The Holkham Holga

Last month, I spent a day on Holkham Beach and took a stroll to Wells-Next-The-Sea. I burnt through a few rolls of film and posted the FP4+ results and the various colour shots in previous blog posts. The last film from that day had a couple of frames to finish and so catches up now. It was shot…

Week 20: Olympus XA2 at the beach

Well, there’s been a little gap as life got in the way.  Predictably, the house mamil rather inconsiderately threw himself off his bike one Sunday evening and is still is recovery.  I’ve heard more ‘ows’ than you can shake a stick at in the last few weeks.  It’s been…interesting.  I also went to Odense and…

Week 6 – A visit to the Beach

We had a little break in the weather here in the week (still cold and rainy) so it was time for a little visit to Porthcawl seafront. I love shooting the Mamiya C330 so after the B&W last week I loaded it with some expired Kodak Portra 160VC which I rated at 320 iso. I…

Week 2: Holga, the mustard one…

Week 36: Harkness Gardens

A trip to see the beautiful gardens at Harkness State Park before Fall threatens to turn them all into various shades of brown.  The mansion itself did not figure too prominently in my shots, but it is quite large and stately.  It is one of the nicest parks in the state, and all the gardens…

roll 31_ Oceanside

Portland has experienced record-breaking heat for most of the summer. I needed an escape so headed to my favorite Oregon beach, Oceanside.  Oceanside is a hidden gem just west of the town of Tillamook and south of the more famous Cannon Beach. I prefer Oceanside because of the rocks off the shore, the tunnel leading…

Week #19 The beach

Week 19 was a slow week. I had little inspiration, and many cameras with unfinished rolls. Because the weather was nice in the weekend, my husband and I wanted to go out and do something. For weeks I had been wanting to see the tulip fields, so we decided to go to the Dutch Bollenstreek…
