Looking over the Rialto bridge

I recently got a medium format camera and I decided to take it away with me to Venice and to Bristol in England over Christmas. Here are some snaps from my trips.

I have to say I do enjoy the process a lot, and using a tripod really helps slow everything down. Whether this is the right camera for my next project I am not sure, but it’s pretty fun exploring things with it.

Playing around – April bank holiday weekend edition

with 3 comments

Well I should have done this a while ago, but anyway.

In the month of April came the Royal Wedding and we also had about 4 bank holidays in the space of two weeks. As a part time worker this meant that I was off work for a nice long time. I went to the country side and chilled out with some great people, some ponies and a lot of puppies. Unsurprisingly enough it was rather lovely.

Here is a collection of images from the period that I’ve put into a quick story:
