First, I apologise now for the overload of photos, but I got a little carried away taking photos of this beautiful building.
These photos are a mixture of LC-A and Zenit-B photos, you can really see the difference a light meter makes I think and also the effect that over exposing has on the Lomography 400 iso film – again some of the photos have a distinctively orange tinge to them but even sat next to the auto exposed LC-A photos, I still really like them. You can also really see the texture that the Zenit B gives photos when you compare the two cameras, I still haven’t figured out exactly what does this but I think its the shutter fabric…
Is it weird that this building took my breath away a little? I think this photo above really captures how grand and striking it looked in the sunshine.
Fountains Hall dates from around 1600 and is built partly with stone from the Abbey ruins. Although only a couple of rooms were open to the public, it was definitely worth a look around.
Location: Fountains Hall, England

I wouldn’t say these are any of my best photos ever, in fact I got a little carried away taking almost the same photo over and over again… But for some reason I’ve been really drawn to trees lately and these ones in particular I loved walking through. I have no other excuse apart from the sunshine! Look at the light.. and all the shadows… beautiful.
Also it’s sunny today here too and I even went for a little walk in it, its amazing what a little sunshine can do for your mood.

Today is my Grandad’s 80th birthday! Isn’t that great :)
I’m sad that I can’t be back in Norfolk to share the day with him today, but as he reads this blog (he’s cool like that) I decided to dedicate a post to him.
Happy birthday Grandad!
Thank you for drawing and painting with me, and for encouraging me with those, thank you for bringing fritters home for us after work (Mikela was never asleep waiting haha), thank you for the humbugs you always gave to me when we came to visit you in your shop (they’re still one of my favourites now), thank you for letting us eat your tomatoes in the green house, and for so much fun digging up your potatoes. Thank you for the sand boats on the beach and the walks to go get the paper. And thank you for always smiling when you see me, you have a great smile! Have a wonderful day and hopefully I’ll see you soon. Oh and I hope you love your presents :)
p.s. If you want to leave my Grandad a comment here, I’m sure he’d love reading them! x
