5 Days of Grey

That’s the BBC weather forecast for my part of the UK, so I thought I would cheer myself up by posting some photographs from summer 2016 in Latvia.

Olympus XA – Ilford HP5+

Hopefully I will be going back to Latvia in June to visit my lovely relatives.

Riga – Olympus XA Ilford HP5+ #5

Riga Central Market

The market in my hometown (Leicester) is quite big and has been around for about 700 years. Riga central market on the other hand was opened in 1930, having been built in and around disused Zeppelin hangers.  It is enormous and a fantastic place to visit.

The shutter button on the Olympus XA is very sensitive and it’s easy to take an inadvertent shot, but I liked the way this one turned out.
