Black Country Living Museum – part 1

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

This set of pictures is from my first visit to the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley. It’s a great place to visit, especially for photography and as the entrance ticket is valid for return visits for a whole year I’m already looking forward to going back there. For sale in the gift shop was a filming locations map for a tv show called Peaky Blinders which is partly filmed there and although I haven’t watched it I can see how the living museum could easily be transformed into a film set.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex 2.8F Zeiss Planar, Ilford HP5 @ ISO 800, developed in Kodak HC110 1+31.

Lunch hour session: Ashmolean

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Here are a set of images from a visit to the Ashmolean Musuem during my lunch hour.
I really like how the new renovations seamlessly blend in with what was the existing building. Lunch time is a nice time to visit because it doesn’t tend to be too crowded, at least not at this time of year (winter). We shall see what the summer brings. I’ll be making lots more visits to the Ashmolean because there is so much to see and I never tire of making new discoveries there.
