Photo catch-up

A combination of bad weather, having a toddler and generally being busy has meant I haven’t done much photography recently. When I have taken pictures, it’s never been enough to finish a film. Last fortnight, though, I finished a roll of film in my Canon T90 that’s been in there for ages, and I hadContinue reading “Photo catch-up”

Gloucester cathedral

Still playing catch-up with the backlog of films! This trip to Gloucester took place weeks ago but I’m extremely pleased with the photography. Many large churches and cathedrals don’t allow tripods so I’m forced to shoot handheld and to use fast Delta 3200 film, which brings its own set of limitations. Gloucester cathedral is welcomingContinue reading “Gloucester cathedral”

Hereford cathedral

It’s been weeks since I visited Hereford and these pictures have been waiting in my queue to be reviewed and published. I’ve finally found the time to have a look, and I’m pleased with the results. These shots of the cathedral were all taken with my Mamiya M645, mostly with the ultra-wide 35mm f/3.5 lens.Continue reading “Hereford cathedral”

St John the Baptist, Frenchay

Although St John the Baptist┬áchurch is not far from my house, I’d never been past it and didn’t know it existed. Over the last few weeks we were invited to both a wedding and a christening at this lovely church, and I vowed to return with my largest camera to do it justice. The church┬ástandsContinue reading “St John the Baptist, Frenchay”

Playing catch-up

These photos are film a film I shot in June but only recently got processed. I normally process all my own films at home but this was one was a slide film and I send those away. I don’t have the chemicals required to process colour slides and I definitely don’t have the patience toContinue reading “Playing catch-up”

Sherborne Abbey

A few weeks ago, I visited Sherborne Abbey with some friends who were singing with the choir In Ecclesia Exon. While they rehearsed, I photographed the beautiful building and some of its contents. I’ve photographed cathedrals and abbeys many times before but on this occasion I was trying to find something a bit different fromContinue reading “Sherborne Abbey”

Somerset Towers update

I’ve been busy this summer so I haven’t spent as much time as I would like taking pictures of the Somerset Towers for my project. Yesterday I went out for the first time in over two months and I photographed four churches. I’ve now got 32 of the 73 churches on my list. This isContinue reading “Somerset Towers update”

Somerset Towers project continues

The weather has been bad lately and quite a lot of the Somerset Levels is still suffering from flooding. Last weekend though, the sun peeped out for a little bit so I decided to check the flood maps and head to some of the drier villages within easy reach of Bristol. I captured a fewContinue reading “Somerset Towers project continues”

Mini-break in Dunster

These pictures were taken during a short break to Dunster for my birthday. Dunster is a tiny village near Minehead which has a wonderful castle and also a church that is one of the Somerset Towers. We also called in a Lynmouth, Lynton and Minehead. Driving to Lynmouth and Lynton involved crossing Exmoor. It wasContinue reading “Mini-break in Dunster”

Church of St Mary and St Peter, Winford

After excitedly writing about my new project, the Somerset Towers, I got off to a few weekends ago by visiting five churches. I chose some of the easiest ones to begin with, and started near Bristol. One of my first visits was the Church of St Mary and St Peter, Winford. I was lucky enoughContinue reading “Church of St Mary and St Peter, Winford”
