Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole, 25s, f167 – Kodak Gold 200 rated at ISO 100

Back in April I had a weekend break in a converted chapel in Leicester and spent the Sunday morning photographing the beautiful stained glass windows on Kodak Gold 200 in my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

This is one of the final images of the morning, when sunlight was streaming in and projecting an image of the windows onto the floor…

Yet another image from my honeymoon in Paris way back in September 2000.

The Musée d’Orsay is housed inside the former Compagnie du chemin de fer de Paris à Orléans (PO) railway station on the left bank of the River Seine and I seem to remember visiting it was the only ‘touristy’ thing we did all week!

Throwback Thursday… Midland Railway-Butterley

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Nine years ago it was more steam trains! This time at the Midland Railway-Butterley in Derbyshire.

London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) Princess Coronation class 4-6-2 locomotive 46233 DUCHESS OF SUTHERLAND was in operation and looked fantastic in the autumn sunshine.

I also paid a visit to the line’s demonstration signal box, a Midland Railway (MR) structure dating from 1895 that originally stood at Linby in Nottinghamshire.

Another image from North Norfolk and given the unseasonably soggy May we’re having I thought I’d choose one captured during an unseasonably warm October!

The six-acre walled garden at Holkham Hall is an ongoing restoration project and a wonderful place to while away a slumberous afternoon.

Monochrome Monday… Mama Jane’s Pizza & Chicken

This is one of four shots taken during a short walk through Derby to The Brunswick Inn in January…

The centre-weighted metering of the Nikon F-301 made a surprisingly good job of this scene, when the dark nights roll around again I’ll have another go at shots like this…
