    Life

    Mottisfont

    There’s a big stately home less than 10 miles from my home that I’ve never visited in all my life, so on Friday I took a day off work and finally got round to seeing what was on my almost-doorstep. And the sun shone!

    Mottisfont is a 12th century Abbey that’s been added to over the years. I like interiors that are a mishmash of old and new, so when you have 800 years-worth of material to play with it’s bound to be good. I loved the stuff from the 1930s and 40s – it seems so near (yet so far away). Wartime Europe fascinates me.

    And just when it I thought it couldn’t get any better, there was a huge exhibition of Lauren Child original artwork.

    And the outside was obviously awesome – it’s an ancient walled garden in August. No contest!

    So, a fabulous day was had and my camera was pleased of the exercise (as was I).

    Taken with my Canon 5D MkII and 50mm f/1.4 lens + iPhone.

    Lovely lavender

    You can’t really tell from these photos but this little lavender farm was buzzing with a million bees. The smell was amazing too – I can see why the bees like…

    A new black & white

    I got hold of some of Impossible’s B&W 2.0 film for my lovely Polaroid SX-70 (which I literally had to dust off before using). The best thing about this film is…
