Memories of last summer.
A short walk late last week that got terminated by rain & snow flurries.
All the snow has gone for now, just wet and windy but I can’t summon up enthusiasm for venturing out.
I think it’s time I turned back, as this is the end of the path
Violin & bow on seat.
P.s after making this picture, I noticed that the bridge is slightly off centre with the G string. The instrument has been in storage for some time so new strings and tuning needed.
Here be the work of Orcs.

Mishka Pub (formally known as the Blue Bell) on my list of places to go as I am told the food is very good.
Another wet & damp day, but hay ho it could be 45°C and 95% humidity and I would be running for an air-conditioned room.
A rather neglected inn – Driffield.
The sign says ‘Plasma TV’ maybe they should have spent it on a coat of paint.
An early evening walk in Driffield.
I wish everyone a very merry Xmas & Happy New year. 🎄
Private parking – Driffield.
From my files: Nikon F2sb, Tokina 35-70 f2.8 AIs AT-x zoom lens. using Kodak Tri-x old style emulsion: before the amount of silver in the film stock was reduced, around 2007 I think.
Moon light – tree on rocks: Jebel Akhdar.
Another from Burton Agnes: this was made with the wrong aperture so had lots of motion blur and I nearly threw it out. The place is very old, cold and damp, so with a little added diffusion along with printing it on Ilford multigrade FB art 300 paper, it should give more of a feel for the place. Well that’s my excuse anyway 😉
Info about Ilford MG Art 300 paper, from their site:-
Black & white, silver gelatin coated, 100% Cotton Rag based darkroom paper. This premium quality, variable contrast paper delivers a slightly warm image tone on a neutral to cool white acid-free base. This unique paper has a textured matt surface with an ‘eggshell’ sheen finish making it a traditional fine art darkroom paper unlike any other. It is the perfect complement to showcase stunning black & white fine art images and is ideal for toning, hand colouring and retouching.

I make it look as if Driffield is always damp & misty, it’s not. I think it’s my subconscious feelings about UK weather presupposes me to this sort of image, but I’ll get over it eventually.
