Bletchley Park Museum

I paid a visit to Bletchley Park Forties weekend. Weather today was very bright so taking photos meant we had harsh shadows and lots of contrast so I have chosen to finish all my shots in black & white which is in keeping with the theme of the day.

River Stort Walk

My fellow photographer and friend Gary is recovering from a heart attack, so as part of his recovery we are going out walking as often as we can. Today we walked along the River Stort.

Ely Eventing Centre

I visited the Little Downham Horse Trials on Saturday, held at the Ely Eventing Centre. The weather was very overcast & although the light was poor I was able to get a few reasonable shots. I hope to return next year.

Many thanks to the centre for making us photographers very welcome.

Hedingham Castle

May Bank Holiday Monday, I visited  Hedingham Castle, they were holding a Medieval Battle & May Fair. The weather started very bright, probably the best day of the weekend but the afternoon soon became overcast with some rain, lots of opportunities to photograph the medieval, actors both inside & out. All in all it turned out to be a really good family day out.

Some of the members & performers from the Medieval Siege Society.

 A display of birds of prey by the Lavenham Falconry Centre was part of the day.
