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.

Another image of Thurne Mill in Norfolk, this time from roll of 35mm Ilford FP4 Plus that’s been waiting for development for a couple of months…

The weather that day was perfect for an outdoors pub lunch and a pint or two (or three)… It’s a pity I can’t say the same of today!

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

More people need to practise this…

So many of my friends, employed in service industries, are finding their working days being made thoroughly unpleasant thanks to customers who can’t even be ‘civil’ let alone ‘excellent!’ to them… Being on the recieving end of outright abuse is becoming a daily occurence for some of them and it needs to stop!

End of sermon…

This piece of street art was spotted in Norwich a few weeks ago, after an hour of trawling the internet I still don’t know who painted it but it may be the work of artist Tony Allen… If anyone knows for certain, please tell me.
