Norwich Cathedral

Travel and Other Adventures

The day after our tour through the Norfolk coast, we visited Norwich Cathedral. Norwich Cathedral was completely, mind-blowingly amazing. It is 900 years old. Let that sink in for a moment. 900. years. old. It made me think of the book Pillars Of The Earth and I wonder if this cathedral is what the author had in mind when he wrote the book. It’s truly an amazing work of architectural art.

We had special permission to have tripods in cathedral so I shot a few pinhole photos. For whatever reason, my Olympus XA didn’t make it out of my bag that day.

Here are a few pinhole and iPhone shots.

St Margaret’s of Cley

Travel and Other Adventures

One of our stops in Norfolk was a really cool Anglican church: St Margaret’s, Cley. It’s located in Cley Next The Sea. Here are a few photos from my iphone, pinhole camera, and 35mmcc (more geeky film photography details at the end of the post).

The North Sea

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.

Cape Lookout in a Yurt

Travel and Other Adventures

Saturday morning I get an email from my husband: “Cape lookout has campsites available for Sunday. We can get a regular campsite or we can get a yurt. They have one yurt available.” Me: “Let’s take the yurt!”

It’s been years since we’ve been to Cape Lookout on the Oregon Coast. In fact, the last time we’d camped here was when we lived in Spokane, about  8 years ago. When we were here last I remember thinking it was one of the most beautiful places I’d ever been.

I have to say, it was just as pretty as I’d remembered. And this was the first time I’d ever stayed in a yurt. It was surprisingly awesome! I kind of didn’t even feel like I was camping. There was even electricity! The crazy thing is that I didn’t bother brining a plug to charge my phone because, why would I do that if I am going camping? where am I going to plug my phone in? But our yurt had an electrical outlet. So. My phone was dead for a day with a perfectly good outlet sitting there mocking me. Oh well. It was nice to be unplugged for a bit.

Here are some photos.

Pinholeday photos – Painted Ladies

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

So pinholeday! I need to share my photos with you. I shot a couple of rolls of film and really liked a lot of what was on the roll. I was super thrilled that they came out because I developed them myself and I’m still a little uneasy about developing c-41.

Here are a couple of shots of the Painted Ladies. I really am happy with how these came out. I was a bit worried about the composition because the park across the street was closed and that is generally where people stand to get the famous shot of them. But with the magic of pinhole the cars driving by disappeared and the wide angle helped me get a unique shot right up close. I was practically standing on the steps for the second shot!
