It would appear that I didn’t blog any photos during 2021 – OK, I didn’t take a lot (actually the fewest in a year since I switched to digital), but I do have some to share.
I’ll share three sets here from Spring 2021.
First up are images from a stroll round parts of Westbury-on-Trym in March – down the side of Henbury Golf Club, and then to the church in Westbury-on-Trym village.
These are all on film – my dad’s old Pentax MX 35mm and my new Ondu Panoramic Pinhole camera, also 35mm. The colours in the panoramic pinhole aren’t great, but in my defence it was the first roll of C41 I’d developed.
The second set are from an April visit to Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury, Wiltshire – somewhere I have visited many times over the years, but usually for their clothes-optional days. This was a “normal” visit – I wanted to go earlier in the year than usual, and also wanted to see their sculpture exhibition as I’d enjoyed the one in 2020.
There are a few film images in here – shot on expired colour negative film and (badly) processed by me – not a great combination for realistic colours!
Abbey House Gardens are beautiful, and I’ve been there so many times – but this was the last visit.
The house has been sold and it’s understood that the gardens will not be open to the public.
The third set is from Cumberland Basin in Bristol at the end of April – another place I keep going back to as I love photographing the industrial setting and concrete flyovers. This time I also walked up the path on the “other” side of the river, as far as the Suspension Bridge.
All of these images were taken on film – square ones on the Hasselblad, a couple on the Pentax MX and the rest on the Ondu Panoramic Pinhole camera.
