Somehow blogging has fallen off of my radar and I haven’t posted in a few weeks. It’s kind of crazy how time can get away from you. I have missed my blog, so this is an attempt to get back into the habit.

I’ve been shooting quite a lot this Summer, and I have results to post! Here are a pair of photos from the Portland Japanese Garden in June on a pinhole meetup with some SCOPES friends.

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.

I love shooting pinholes while eating meals or drinking in a pub. I never go out to pubs though unless it’s Pinholeday weekend.  So here are a few from when we were in Norwich!

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.

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

While we were in Norwich, our flat was near a really charming cobblestone lane that we walked on a lot to get from one place to another. It turns out that this is an historical place (but to be honest, what doesn’t have historical significance in Europe?). The place is called Elm Hill and I took a lot of photographs there. I watched a television documentary on Norwich that mentioned something important about the thatched roof building in a bunch of these photos, and I can’t for the life of me remember what that important thing was. And I can’t quickly Google it. But you can read about the history of it and the rest of Elm Hill here.

Incidentally, I had the best chat with the lady sitting on the bench in the Black and White photo. It turns out, she knew exactly where Portland, Oregon was because she had family living here. What are the odds?
