At the beach at Crackington Haven - the red flags were out on Wednesday as a warning not to go into the sea. It was pretty windy and the surf was definitely up. We almost got soaked just sitting on the shore.

Our friends got married last weekend and what a joyous occasion it was. The ceremony was so personal to them and full of emotion - I absolutely loved that they 'jumped the broom', taking a leap of faith into their new lives as husband and wife. This is the moment just before they did - filled with excitement.

Before we left Lacock, B kindly offered to pose for me in some last shots around the grounds of Lacock Abbey, with a view to being able to create some images like this. The 'ghostly' effect has been created here using layers in Photoshop, but the final result is almost identical to a set of images I took, years ago, using very controlled multiple-exposures with a film camera.
Photoshop makes trying experimental techniques like this far more accessible than in previous years - but I do still love playing with film. Hopefully now that we've got moving out of the way I'll be able to use the rest of the summer holidays to shoot some analogue.

I actually took this photo a couple of weeks ago now - on the river near Wilcot, on one of those glorious sunny evenings we had. I just remembered I hadn't posted it, when I saw it again on my iPhone. I am longing for days like this again - I am getting so sick of the rain!

Another medieval masterpiece - this beautiful stained glass window from St Oswald's Church in Ashbourne would have taken years to make, with each piece of glass being individually stained and fired, before being pieced together and held in place with lead.
