Madonna and Child

…at least that’s what I’m assuming it is.
This rather fine sculpture (and I do appreciate that the evaluation is subjective) is to be found in the grounds of Norwich Cathedral.

And I could of course have done with a slightly less overcast day… But we live and learn 🙂

Gates through a different lens

I took a shot of these with my Canon AT-1, which I have already posted, but here is the Lomo version. I have yet to master the slightly seasick feeling it gives me trying to use the waistlevel finder, which is why this is one of several shots that appear more than a little wonky 😉

Lomo Lubitel 2 on Ilford HP5

In other news, I have exposed 2 of the 8 shots on the 127 roll in the Baby Brownie Special. I really have no clue how they’ll turn out, if at all. Your subject needs to be 5 feet away (no focussing capability) and in bright sunlight (no shutter speed or aperture variations and an ISO of 80) – the original point-and-click!

And I am now the proud owner of a very old Box Brownie, and awaiting some 620 film for that.

Exciting times (for me, at least!) 🙂

Cathedral Cloisters

This one was technically a little trickier as it required a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second, which can result in shocking camera shake (especially if you really don’t – like me – have a steady hand!) So I rested the little Russian box on the cloister wall for it.

And there, in all their glory, are my five boys sitting on the wall of the cloisters in Norwich Cathedral.

Shot 2/12 of the first Lomo Lubitel 2 experiment. (The second film is underway, now that I know it works).
