    Cley next the Sea

    Here goes another set of pictures I took some time ago, also in the summer of 2015. The weather was nice enough to do some visits to coastal places in Norfolk, a region here in England I like lots. This time was in Cley Next the Sea. I went there with a friend, and we walked a […]

    Long delays (2)…

    I think I’m going to start a black and white period of pictures. I love colour ones, but I feel like black and white is better suited these days. Black and white is less distracting, helping ease composition issues as pictures can become more abstract and schematic. Also perhaps it fits better with my current…

    Orford Ness (2)

    Here are the remaining pictures from my day trip to Orford Ness. That day started cloudy, and when it was time to leave, the sun appeared. For a moment I though, what if I stay here to see how it looks at night? Actually, you can book a photography tour to do exactly that. Something to…

    Orford Ness

    Last Saturday I spent the day visiting an interesting place. I had heard about it a while ago, just by chance while browsing the National Trust website. Its called Orford Ness, in Suffolk. There is a pretty little village there, with a castle, various pubs and tea rooms. And then, across a short distance, this…

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

    Here is my picture for this weekly photo challenge. It’s not the first time I post some old door pictures here. There is something about them that makes you wonder: When was the last time it was opened? This one is in Anglesey Abbey gardens, an old house close to Cambridge. It belongs to the…

    Old

    I didn’t want to go to this place when I was a child. This place was scary, at night you could hear noises. They are rats, my grandparents said to my brothers and me. But also, I heard that at some point, decades ago, maybe during the Spanish civil war, a priest came to make…

    Wimpole’s Folly

    As I mentioned earlier, I had an entire weekend for visiting some National Trust places in the UK. This one was taken here. Apart from visiting the house and the gardens, there are walks all around the place with interesting views and things. These ruins are part of a fake ruined castle built in 1770 for decorative…

  • Steam Ship Falcon wreck

    Steam Ship Falcon wreck

      These metallic shapes with rust, sea anemones and barnacles are what is left of the Steam Ship Falcon, that caught fire in 1926 and ended wrecked in Dover coast, in front of the Langdon search lights, precisely. Little remains of that ship but its steel frame is still there. The pass of time has created its own biological…

    I took this one in In my visit to Dover. It is an abandoned search light battery used in World War Two, situated in Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover Harbour. This place was used to light possible enemy ships coming by night. The Langdon battery, on the top of the cliff, could shoot these ships. In…
