   Film photography isn't one of my fort├ęs, considering I studied it for three years, albeit the class was taught by an intolerable, fractious, high-maintenance woman who, to this day, I still cannot stand the thought of (there's always one teacher who'll make you thankful you left school). 

   Anyway, with film photography, I'll usually end up scratching the film (see above), overexposing, underexposing, forgetting the camera doesn't automatically focus at the half-push of a button, etc. Yet, I continue to persevere with the medium - simply because, when a photo taken with an SLR turns out right, it looks nothing short of amazing. There's something about film that you just cannot recreate with a DSLR, no matter how much time you spend on Photoshop.

   Above are a handful of photographs I took with my Ricoh on a trip to Thorpeness in Suffolk, a coastal town with a picturesque boating lake and a seven story 'house in the clouds' to its name.

   My boyfriend and I took a trip around the lake on a rowing boat, ate ice creams and afternoon tea, and toured the little town on foot, before setting off home again. It was like something out of Bridget Jones's Diary, without one of us falling headfirst into the water.


  1. I really like how these photos turned out, they are beautiful! Looks like you had a lovely day, rowing sounds like fun. I remember when I was on Holiday I tried rowing a boat and found it so hard!


    1. Aww thank you so much :) We really did have a lovely day (my bf did most of the rowing so I just sat back and enjoyed the ride!)

      Much love,
