Nikon FE2, Nikkor 45mm f/2.8P, 1/90s, f8 – Ilford Delta 400 Professional
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

Apparently the Grade-II listed former Grammar School buildings have been ‘saved’ and are to become a ‘mixed-use development site’ (whatever one of those is…)

We wait with baited breath…

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Eight years ago it was the Norfolk coastline…

Happisburgh lighthouse must be one of the most photographed structures in Norfolk and I certainly couldn’t resist pointing my camera at it…

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was the seaside town of Sheringham in Norfolk.

I can’t remember where we were staying but this image was definitely taken whilst wandering to or from the pub (probably the Windham Arms… they serve an excellent pint!)
