This is in Verulamium, the old Roman part of St Albans, Hertfordshire. I had a wander around the churchyard with an old manual lens - XR Rikenon 1:1.7 50mm (an eBay bargain), on a K-70.

1. Daffodils in the churchyard and the Roman Museum in the background:

2. The church is surrounded by tall trees, so a view in between them:

3. Another view of the church - couldn't get far enough away, so this is a 5-shot vertical pano:

4. One of the gateways from the churchyard:

[ They are camera JPEGs tweaked in PaintShop Pro; also made use of the Nik software for the gateway and Microsoft ICE for the pano.]

There's life in that old glass yet! I sense a lovely dreamy quality in these images.

Every day's a holiday!

Nice shots in a very familiar stomping ground.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
