An interlude for a look at Saffron Walden Crank Up

A couple of weeks ago a now annual event took place in a field just outside Saffron Walden. Numerous steam driven vehicles, pumps, old cars, stalls and refreshment wagons rolled up to entertain the incomers. The Saturday was very wet but Sunday dawned fine and we went there for a couple of hours in the afternoon to admire the show. Here are a few pictures from our visit. What larks.

Bluebells from Wiltshire

I am interrupting the Chicago blogs to bring news of bluebells, while they are still in bloom. Last week I went on a work shop with Valda Bailey and Terry Gibbons based in a wood where there were a mass of bluebells. Unlike the woods around her it was quite tidy which made for less distractions. The morning entailed a 5.00am meet up so I stayed overnight at a B&B in Pewsey in order to lessen the shock. We photographed until around 9.00am and then went back to Marlborough where we had breakfast and spent a few hours developing and printing our pictures with the help of Valda and Terry, and also Toby from Fotospeed (feel a bit of a traitor here as I have always been a Permajet girl). The sun came up with a lovely warm glow and there was even a little mist coming through the trees. Here are some of the finished images, with some ICM and multiple exposure ones at the end.
