OCOLOY Week 46

Bit of a departure this week, as for one thing this post is late, but I have a good reason: I got married! Even though it was a low-key thing, it was still a bit stressful getting things prepared, so not much time for picture-taking. The other departure is colour. Most of these pictures were taken in Beccles and although the monochrome versions are ok, I still feel like the colour is necessary with these. »

OCOLOY Week 32

Weather this week: almost entirely rainy or heavily overcast. Most of these pictures were shot at ISO 2000; the lowest was at 400, and that had to be pushed a bit in Capture One. Lens this week: Fuji 18–55mm! Yep, I decided this week I needed a break from the exclusive 35mm usage, as a sort of preview of things to come once I'm done with the OCOLOY project. The 18–55 is odd.

Still, the short trip to Beccles was quite productive, so it's not all bad. dev work boot hinge papered shop antique shops have you paid and displayed »
