We paid a visit to Alice Holt Forest in Surrey last weekend to take the kids around The Stick Man Trail (see here). It proved to be an interesting test of my March challenge of only using in-camera processing.
Finding Stick Man & Gruffalo
The kids are huge fans of the books of Julia Donaldson, particularly The Gruffalo and Stick Man, so they were very excited when we took them to the Stick Man Trail at Alice Holt Forest in Surrey this past weekend.
Last week I made a quick trip to the northern tip of Hayling Island to scout out the Hayling Billy Trail, a walk that follows in the footsteps of the long gone steam train that once carried passengers between the island and mainland.
Challenged to Blur
The final week of my month in 35mm is based around the Week 8 Photo Challenge of foreground and background blur, which fits the large aperture lens well.
Morning Flare and Classic Chrome
I found myself back in Horsham Park this week as the dramatic low winter sun began warming up the frozen landscape.
One of the benefits of this blog is we are now getting out and seeing a lot more local sights; places around the corner that we didn’t even know existed. One such place is Langstone Harbour, just a few minutes away from Emsworth.
Where do you go when you and your better half get your first afternoon in months without the kids and the weather is foul? An exhibition on children’s TV of course!
This is my final week of black and white, and whilst I don’t have any profound lessons to share it has been an interesting month. At times frustrating as colour can often define an image, but overall my fascination with mono has increased.
