Holy Island: Inside Lindisfarne Castle

I'm not very brave with taking photos inside with film cameras as usually with my plastic and Lomo cameras they never work out very well. But in comparison my Zenit B is a very forgiving camera, in fact, most of my favourite photos with it have been taken inside. So I decided to be a bit braver with it and take some photos inside Lindisfarne Castle, though by a bit braver, I mean 5 photos instead of maybe 2 haha. And as you can see, just to be safe, they are all of very bright places with big windows.

I guess technically that last photo is outside, but it was within the castle grounds, so I'm putting it here anyway. Also, I usually like an even number of photos in posts... (You probably didn't notice. You'll notice now.)

I wouldn't say I'm 100% thrilled with these photos, I'm still having fun balancing the manual exposure with my Zenit B and even though this is a 200 iso film, I still managed to overexpose a lot of the photos outside which is frustrating.

On the plus side, the inside of Lindisfarne Castle was amazing and for £7 (ish, I don't fully remember) entry, I thought it was a bargain as the castle tour just seemed to keep going with room after stunning room to look around. In fact I even would say it was better than I was expecting and I had high expecations.

{Can you spot the slightly blurry Nuthatch in the photo above? It was really going for that tree...}

I can't tell you how happy I am that its finally getting lighter and brighter in the UK and judging by my recent photos, I'm obviously trying to capture as much of that sunshine as I can.

These were taken around Fountains Abbey and I think I enjoyed looking for the little details around the grounds as much as I enjoyed walking around the abbey.

Betty's, Ilkley.

It's no secret we love afternoon tea, and we especially love Betty's as a treat... we took Adele to the one in York, we took my grandparents to the one at Harlow Carr in Harrogate last year and last month we took our Mum's to the Betty's in Ilkley and it was delicious!


Next time we go to Betty's I want to go for breakfast (followed by a scone of course) the menu looks delicious!
