Warham Camp, Norfolk

Travel and Other Adventures

One of the most memorable places we visited in Norfolk was Warham Camp, which is the remnants of Iron Age settlement. I’ve said this before on this blog, but it’s really hard for me to wrap my mind around the history of the really old places I’ve visited in Europe so far. It blows my mind when I walk around places that were inhabited by people thousands of years ago. This place was simply magical.

There was a tree on the site that I liked. I’m certain it isn’t as old as the settlement, but still. It had a good vibe.

Warham Camp is circular hill fort. In the photos you can see the hill and trench. This trench/hill circles the settlement and was used for defense. Here are some websites with more information about this interesting place:

I am struggling with where to start with regard to sharing this adventure with you. I suppose I will start with Day One. But I am going to have to break it up in parts because it was a big day. For my camera geek friends, These posts will be a mixture of Pinhole photos, photos from the Olympus XA, Instax, and iPhone snaps (I’ll geek out more about films used and exposure times at the end of the post).

Let’s start with The Van.

Alex, the organizer of this meetup was very kind to rent a giant van to pick up his American friends from the airport. We then used it to transport the lot of us to the Norfolk coast where we wandered and took photos.

I tried a taste of bacon bap from this charming little place.

The group of us walked and walked through beautiful landscapes.

It was the first of many beautiful places we would visit that day.

Geeky Bits:

The pinhole photos were shot with a Reality So Subtle 6×6 and Ektar 100. All shots were around 5 seconds long.

The Black and White photos were shot with an Olympus XA and Ferrania P30.

Travel and Other Adventures

I’m officially too sick to go running today. But I felt like getting out of the house without expending any energy and being around people. So the Mister & I went for a long drive around Mt Hood. Highway 84 was reopened yesterday and I was curious to drive through the Gorge to see the Eagle Creek Fire damage. I took a bunch of drive-by photos with my phone but they really don’t show much. It’s really pretty devastating. Especially the area around Eagle Creek.

Regardless, the Gorge is still breathtaking. It’s still The Gorge. I am looking forward to documenting how Nature takes its course. I am looking forward to seeing what new plants will grow and how the landscape and view will change. But for now I morn the terrible destruction that has taken place to one of my favorite places.

Here are my photos. The fire got really close to the freeway!
