Olympus OM101/(OM88) #3

A few more images from the Olympus OM101 and 35-70mm zoom, on Rollei Retro 400s film. They were taken in April at Oakham, Rutland. Was so lucky with the weather it was really bright, and almost warm.

Thursday Doors

13-04-17

Managed a short visit to Oakham in Rutland this week, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutland) the weather forecast was reasonable and it’s only two stops down the line from my hometown. It’s been a long time since I visited Oakham for sightseeing, used to go there 2 or 3 times a month for business when I still worked. It’s a lovely old market town and most importantly has a fine selection of doors for my contribution to the excellent Norm 2.0 “Thursday Doors” Blog.

Oakham Cemetery

You can see the cemetery from the railway as you enter Oakham, it looked interesting so went straight there from the station. I know it’s not really a door but it’s a lovely building and entrance way. The lodge is Grade-II listed.

There are some lovely cottages along the side streets, a lot of them are constructed from the local stone and many have thatched roofs. Really enjoyed the visit to Oakham.

Thursday Doors – Ecclesiastical Doors

I had to dig into my archives to find some doors to post on “Thursday Doors” over at the excellent Norm 2.0 blog. The weather and light have been dull and grey here in Leicester.

You would need to be tall & slim to fit through this door at All Saints Church, Braunston, Rutland. This photo was taken on my Olympus 35DC film camera.

If you look carefully at the two doors above, letters and numbers have been chalked on them, I have no idea what if anything they refer to. These were taken on 10th Jan this year one of the few bright days we have had.

Chartres Cathedral, France 2008

Chartres Cathedral is a magnificent building, and Chartres was a great overnight stop on my way back from my friends in Aquitaine.

*Sorry about the large size of some of these images, but it was before I got the sizing right for WordPress posts.
