Film 7

Some photographs of a walk around Halifax many years ago.  I can't quite remember when or much about the walk itself.  Just that we enjoyed a pub Sunday lunch with the largest Yorkshire puddings I had ever seen.

Film 6

Back to my student days for this roll.  the first photo is of my flat mate continuing the party after a good neet oot in Newcassle in our house in Benwell.  The house was later condemned as unfit for human habitation.  Nothing to do with our antics or the nurses below us who went out one night leaving a lit cigarette in the ashtray which burnt through their flat -  that's another story though.

By way of comparison the next photograph was taken in the house I grew up in in Bourne End.  My eldest sister and a family friend.  No empty bottles, fag packets or stains in sight.

Film 5

Film 5 is a snapshot into my university days.  That time of my life when I challenged myself intellectually and learnt to formulate ideas and arguments and ended of my educational career a fully developed adult.

I studied at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne where I read Agricultural Zoology, a course and a university that I enjoyed very much.

The first photograph is of my flatmates in the Student Union after a particularly cultural day out in Durham (we managed to get ourselves thrown out of the cathedral).

The next photograph is the first of a series of ever more bizarre photographs taken after we had celebrated our Christmas lunch at the end of term.  I can't remember why, I don't want to remember why and I certainly can't publish any of the photos that followed this one.

 And here we have two of my housemates buying milk.

Film 4

At some point in the mid 90s I walked the Corsican High Route, or rather the first (and tougher) half.  A hard trek was made harder by carrying my first medium format camera, a Mamiya C330 and tripod as well as tent, clothes, food etc., and I also took along a disposable panoramic camera.

These shots were from that camera.

Film 3

Another roll of film from my mid twenties.
This shot was taken in Snowdonia during a half forgotten week end away -  I think is was during the weekend myself and three friends walked every peak over 3000ft in the park.

My mother.

Two friends during a week end in the Peak District. I think this taken on the way up to Kinder Scout

A sheep.
