I had never heard of pick your own sunflowers before. This summer due to the virus, a local garden centre changed the purpose of some fields. One became pick your own sunflowers (£1 a piece) and one became pick your own sweetcorn (50p a piece). My youngest ate two whole raw cobs when we were … Continue reading Sunflowers
A short while before the Covid 19 pandemic, there had been a storm which had been fairly damaging (damaging compared to other storms we encounter here). I had decided to take the Olympus 35RC out and shoot all these sheds that had fallen down in the wind at the allotment. They were all just lying … Continue reading Broken sheds
"Aha. My analogue wonderland package has arrived", or so I thought. No, this was not what I had ordered. This was actually a parcel from Sandeep (@Givemeabiscuit on Twitter). He had been kindly gifted a Lomography Simple Use camera (a reusable-disposable one) with a roll of film by Paul from Analogue Wonderland to help him … Continue reading Simple Use
This is another draft I found in my blog. This was written more recently, though the images were from a year ago. This roll is from about a year ago. It was shot before my "most recent" blog post, which was last March. I lost track of it, it sat in the cupboard. I chose … Continue reading Bristol,

I spent about 4 days in Iceland recently. Whilst there i shot a range of cameras and films. For digital, I just … Continue reading Iceland. The land of pinholes and Holga
Reykjavik was great. I enjoyed shooting it almost as much as the rest of Iceland that I saw. A real stand out building is Harpa, the concert hall on the waterfront. Impressive though it is to approach, it is only once you are inside that you really appreciate it. The day was a glorious sunny … Continue reading Harpa.
I thought I would share most of my solography from the last couple of years.
These past few days, it snowed. A lot by our standards. It seemed to be about 20cm or so by the time I measured it. It fell fast on Thursday night, Friday, and stayed through Saturday and sunday. At about 0°C, with 15 mph winds, Friday felt fairly cold. Fine to be out in with … Continue reading Snow Chance
It is about a month ago that Littlest Holga appeared in my porch in a puff of green smoke. Bejeweled with conjuring stones and other accessories, taped shut to stop the demons escaping, I read the instructions (point, focus, shoot) and we went on some little adventures. First up was a roll of HP5, rated … Continue reading The Summer Holga-days
