Where we stayed

Photography

I love going on vacation and seeing everything with beginner’s mind. Everything around me is fresh and new. I felt this way especially about the place we stayed in Norwich. This was the first time we stayed in an apartment on our travels, we usually go with a hotel. I’m totally sold on this and will forever book Air BnBs from now on. It was awesome to pretend like this beautiful little flat was my home for a week.

I decided to document our stay there with pinhole photos.

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

The last day we were in Norwich we visited a really beautiful Victorian garden tucked away amidst the busy city. It was a really nice, relaxing place. The place is called The Plantation Garden and you can read all about it here.  I took some pictures there:

The color shots are pinhole and they were made with a Terrapin Ace and Ektar 100 film. The black and white shot was made with an Olympus XA and Tri-x.

Travel and Other Adventures

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.

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.

Until, finally, we reached the North Sea.

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.

Full Moon Snowshoe

Photography

I FINALLY have photos to show you! These are some pinhole photos I took in January up on Mt Hood on a hike around Trillium Lake with some friends. The hike was meant to be a full moon hike but the clouds didn’t clear so we didn’t see the moon. But the sun set about halfway through our hike and it ended up being really fun hiking in the dark. I didn’t shoot any pinhole in the dark, for obvious reasons!

A snowy meal

These were both shot with a Reality So Subtle 6×6 and Ektar Film The exposure times for both were around 2 minutes or so.

For developing, I did something different. I sent them off to The Darkroom for developing AND scanning. It was nice to not have to scan these and I didn’t have to do any post processing at all, apart from cropping out the vignette. The only downside is that I got the lowest quality scan and they are not very big files so if I ever want to print them I will have to re-scan them.

OH! And I can’t believe I didn’t blog about this! I was interviewed on a new podcast about pinhole photography: The Lensless podcast, a few weeks ago. You can listen here.
