Wayfarers Walk

The Wayfarers Walk is a 70-mile walking route that starts in Berkshire and ends at Emsworth Harbour, South Hampshire. In early August 2022, I spent a couple of days walking its final 29 miles (with some variations, of course) from Alresford to Emsworth, with an overnight stay in Soberton. The pictures were taken on Kodak Ektar 100 film with my Nikon F65.


Kings Lynn and Norwich

Even with an entire month of annual leave, a trip to Germany proved unfeasible in August 2021, thanks to the travel restrictions in place. So I made instead a couple of shorter trips within England, including a 4-day visit of Norfolk, an area I had never visited before. Based in Kings Lynn, I explored the town, walked to Sandringham and continued on a bus to Hunstanton, made a day trip to Norwich (by train via Ely) and walked from West Lynn to the beginning of the Wash. I took my Nikon F65 with me and a roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200 film stock.


Holiday 2020

My original holiday plan for 2020 was a train and bicycle trip to Germany, revolving around a school reunion in early May. Like so many others, I had to change plans. In the end, I remained within a 10-mile radius from home from March 2020 until July 2021. I did, however, manage to 'go away' for holiday, thanks to a friend who lent me her narrowboat to stay on for a week in December. It was initially moored near Trowbridge, then half way through the week moved to Murhill. I used the boat as a base for several long - and muddy - walks. The pictures were taken with my Pentax K1000 on Ilford FP4 Plus 125 black and white film.


West Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

On 7 August 2019 I made a day trip on board the Scillonian III from Penzance to St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly. The pictures were taken on Kodak Ektar 100 film stock with my Pentax K1000.


Bradford on Avon Quaker Meeting House

In April 2019 I used a roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200 film stock and my Nikon F65 to take pictures of my workplace, mainly for the purpose of updating their website.


Great Dorset Steam Fair 2018

The Great Dorset Steam Fair celebrated its 50th anniversary in grand style by bringing together well over 500 full-size traction engines. A few of them made it through my Pentax K1000's lens onto Kodak Ektar 100 film stock.


European cities

A journey in July 2018 brought me to Rotterdam, Berlin, and Strasbourg, amongst other places. The pictures were taken on Kodak Ektar 100 film with my Pentax K1000.


Self-portraits

On the morning of Thursday 5 July 2018, I put my Nikon F65 onto a tripod before starting to prepare breakfast and finished off a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 film with the help of the camera's self-timer. The pictures are reminiscent of my 2010 modelling for photography student Hannah Sampson.


Peak District

Bamford Quaker Community was a regular venue for meetings of the Experiment with Light Network Steering Group. On 3/4 July 2018 I took my Nikon F65 with a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 film stock along.


Robert Burns themed still lives

At a Burns night celebration in Bristol, a friend presented me with two Robert Burns beer mats. They originally belonged to her uncle who had started collecting beer mats in the 1960s. On 27 February 2018, I combined the beer mats with other Burns-related accessories for a photo project. All pictures were taken on Kodak Color Plus 200 film stock with my Pentax K1000 fitted with a Vivitar 135mm/f2.8 lens.


Great Dorset Steam Fair 2017

The Great Dorset Steam Fair has been a regular feature for me for several years. On 24 August 2017, I took my Pentax K1000 with me and a roll of Ilford FP4 125 Plus film stock.


Goring & Streatley Regatta 2016

The Goring & Streatley Regatta used to be a fairly regular event for me to meet up with old friends and laze about under a gazebo on the bank of the River Thames. However, on 16 July 2016, things turned out a bit differently: a couple of hours after my arrival, I handed my trusted Pentax K1000 over to my friend Zandy and climbed into a canoe. I was one of three people who deputised for three former teammates who couldn't do the afternoon race they were supposed to be in after they had, much to their surprise, won their race in the morning. Suffice to say that our spontaneously organised new team didn't win. However, I'm proud to say that we didn't fall into the Thames and didn't come last, finishing in an honourable 5th place out of 6 (or 7 if you add the team that failed to show up).


Bristol Naked Bike Ride 2016

On 4 June 2016, I joined in, for the seventh time, with the World Naked Bike Ride in Bristol. On this occasion I took pictures with my Nikon F65 35mm SLR using Kodak ColorPlus 200 film. Some of the pictures were used in my short film Bristol Naked Bike Ride through the years.


Colorado

A friend's wedding brought me to Colorado in May 2015 where I stayed in Estes Park for a few days before travelling by train from Denver to Grand Junction. I took my Nikon F65 with me and Kodak Ektar 100 colour and Iford PanF Plus 50 black and white film stock.


Bristol Naked Bike Ride 2014

The Bristol edition of the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) has been a regular feature for me since I first joined in at the end of the ride in 2010. The following year I was a running reporter with my Super 8 camera, as you can see from my short documentary on vimeo. Following two fairly chilly rides in 2012 and 2013, the weather was more inviting in 2014. The pictures here were taken with my Pentax K1000 on Ilford FP4 Plus 125 film. Some of the photos were used in my short film Bristol Naked Bike Ride through the years.
