Summer 2021 – we can’t get to France or anywhere in mainland europe thanks to covid and Brexit – the two things together might be called Coxit or Brevid. So – Bob the Dog and I took a trip down to Minehead via Salisbury and Bridport. We had a lovely time.
This summer we took our old van and our middle aged dogs on a road trip to meet up with my son and his partner – and to meet her folks.
Our van likes to do about 100 miles a day – so a return trip from Worthing to Beamish took us 10 days. The weather was pretty wet, but we weren’t downhearted and the van behaved faultlessly – the van, Hildegarde, has now gone off for her annual make over so while she is away having her welds welded we can look at these pictures and make plans for next year.
All the photos were shot using an Olympus OM30 and fuji colour negative film – all developed at home in the sink!
As well as visiting Beamish open air museum we also visited the wonderful Yorkshire sculpture park.
Just before the nights began to draw in we took advantage of the late summer bank holiday to take out van and dogs to Chiddingly. The weather was great, the pub was ideal and I captured a few pictures using the Olympus OM 30 – and a roll of Ilford FP4. I also took the opportunity to shoot three new Trichromic images – three black and white images working together to make a colour image – just like technicolor!
