Photographic Friday

Scheveningen

It’s still summer, so a sunny shot on the Dutch beach of Scheveningen.

Photographic Friday

Sorry no update last Friday, I was busy working with no laptop in sight to upload a picture. (Just like I will be until the end of August.) Therefore a double shot this week of the ‘Parade’, the theatrical festival I’m working at this summer.

The ‘heart’ of the festival terrain, the carousel.

And at night, a psychedelic sight.

underwater palm tree

Week 2 of me sharing analogue photographs. This time an underwater palm tree. Well not really, it is a multiple exposure of a palm tree and the sea on top of each other, in Turkey on summer holidays. Would love to go back there to relax and do nothing but swimming in the sea.

Angel looking glasses

I got an old fashioned roll of photo’s developed this week and whist some could go straight to the bin (I still occasionally forget to change the camera settings for dark or light), the pile of funny, arty and pretty pictures still grows with no particular audience to share them to. So from today I will pick one out of the pile and post it here on Fridays.

Today we’re starting with a multiple exposed photo from my analogue Diana mini camera of a collection of magnifying glasses, that I took at Camden Passage market in London.

Little guide to York

A couple weeks ago I went on a little holiday trip to Yorkshire and the Peak District. Despite our plan to just drive around the countryside and see whatever village, castle or hiking trial we would see I’m one of those people who weeks beforehand sources the internet to find out what there is to do, which route to take to get the best views and in every hotel I grab every flyer on activities in the neighbourhood.

So though I can’t call myself an expert after a onetime trip, specially for everyone like me here are some suggestions to do in York.

York

First things first, it’s important to find a good place to sleep. We stayed at the Sycamore Guest House, a lovely B&B run by Elizabeth who is absolutely lovely and makes you feel very much at home. The walls are covered in floral wallpaper and the rooms have antique furniture which matches perfectly and is very comfortable. Full English (and continental) breakfast is served on pretty English china. Seriously I wouldn’t mind to move in there.

Sycamore York

Love or hate it, but I want this wallpaper.

But it would be a shame to stay in bed all day when you’re only a couple minutes walk from the very picturesque city centre of York.

First the museum gardens are lovely for a stroll or a picnic surrounded by trees, flowers, historical buildings/ruins and squirrels.
