The camera is now in Sweden!

Thank you Charles for passing it on! The camera turned up this afternoon. The weather forecast for this week is very uncertain, it will most likely be rain. So, I guess that I will shoot B&W just as my fellow Europeans. That's all for now!

Some More From Broxbourne

My final shots. This project has been great fun!

Bayford is a village in Hertfordshire set in some very pretty countryside. It also has some great pubs which serve a mean lunch. These photos were taken after a couple of pints and a gammon steak.

The New River

This was taken the same morning as the River Lea shots. The New River is a canal built in the 17th century to take drinking water to London, which it still does. Having seen some of the things that float down the river, it's a wonder anybody survives there.

Still it's a peaceful spot. I live in one of the houses to the left of the river; I'm right at the end.

The River Lea

So here is my first batch of images. These are photos of the River Lea at Broxbourne taken on a sunny Saturday afternoon and shot with Kodak Tri X which expired many years ago.

I hope they do this blog justice.

Aloha Broxbourne!

Pleased to say that the Vivitar arrived safe and sound in Broxbourne (in England) yesterday. Already shot a couple of rolls though it so will upload these shortly....hopefully the shots will be in focus and won't have my finger blocking the lens!

Traveling Toy Camera in Valencia, Spain. ( Part I )

The brilliant Spanish sunshine is not always good to take pictures, but finally I've succeeded.
My proposal for this project is divided into three parts: people, places and shapes.
I have lot of fun with this project and now I just hope you enjoy my contribution.
