Launde Abbey – Still Life

Well I still haven’t developed any film, and now have a lovely cold and tickly cough, serves me right for drinking beer and walking home in the winter weather. So here’s another two images from last November at Launde Abbey.

A week of reflection

It was a friend of mine’s funeral on Friday, the crematorium was so full, people sitting and standing around the sides of the hall. The eulogies from her husband, family, and members of the band she sang with were so heartfelt and moving. The wake afterwards was at a music venue in town, musician friends of hers paid tribute to her memory by performing small sets on stage, her fellow band members and husband concluding the evenings music and tributes.

I haven’t felt like taking photo’s over the last couple of weeks, There’s a roll of B&W to develop and a roll of colour to send to the lab for processing, both from Dec/Jan. So here are two more images from Launde Abbey that I took in November.

A few more shots from the area around Launde Abbey on a lovely day last November. I am quite impressed with the Tamron 28-200mm, great to be able to go from wide angle to short telephoto without changing lenses. Always avoided getting one of these lenses previously because of mixed reviews. It does fall off slightly in the corners and I noticed a bit of vignetting. but I’m pretty sure that was from the filter I was using. I did have to sharpen the images slightly more than normal in Photoshop.
