    Wie man eine doppelte Pinholekamera aus Streichholzschachteln baut

    Der World Pinhole Day, der jedes Jahr am letzten Sonntag im April stattfindet, ist eine gute Gelegenheit, um mit euch diese Anleitung zu teilen. Vor einigen Jahren setzte ich zwei Streichholzschachteln zusammen, um eine Kamera zu bauen, die skurile Panoramaaufnahmen ermöglicht: sich überlappende Bilder, Mehrfachbelichtungen oder einfach nur nebeneinander stehende Aufnahmen. Wenn ihr Herausforderungen und Überraschungen mögt, dann könnte dies eine Kamera für euch sein.

    O marco histórico favorito... Ernest Shackleton!

    Sir Ernest Shackleton, foi um explorador Anglo Irlandês e uma das figuras chave na exploração das regiões Antárticas. Fico maravilhada ao dizer que por volta dos seus 10 anos, Ernest se mudou para Sydenham, e é onde o seu marco histórico (Blue Plaque) pode ser encontrado.

    Your Favourite Blue Plaque...Ernest Shackleton!

    Sir Ernest Shackleton CVO OBE was an Anglo Irish explorer and one of the key figures in exploring the Antarctic regions. I'm amazed to say that at the age of about ten, he moved to Sydenham, and this is where the Blue Plaque can be found.

    Covent Garden, Somewhere to Spot Someone Famous!

    Covent Garden these days is not full of fruit and vegetables like it used to be but a place to be seen or to spot those that want to be seen! With so many wonderful theatres in the area, the craft market, and all the rather exclusive shops, it is an ideal place to sit back at one of the cafés or pubs and enjoy the ambiance.

    Changing of the Guard At The Tower of London

    The Tower of London is a wonderful place to visit, it is steeped in history and has its fair share of gore - if you like that sort of thing. The Crown Jewels are kept here and some incredible armour, there are also the Yeoman Warders that guard the tower along with the Ravens.

    Maak je eigen dubbele pinhole camera met een luciferdoosje

    Het was wereld-pinhole-fotografie dag/week afgelopen 24 april en om dat te vieren wilde ik een handleiding met jullie delen om zelf een pinhole camera te maken. Een aantal jaar geleden heb ik van 2 luciferdoosjes een bizarre dubbele in elkaar overlopende panorama camera gemaakt waarmee je verschillende beelden kunt overlappen, aan een lange sluitertijd kunt blootstellen of naast elkaar kunt zetten. Als je de uitdaging aan durft en van het onverwachte houd, dan is dit dé camera voor jou.

    How To Make a Double Matchbox Pinhole Camera

    World Pinhole Photography Day/Week is coming up on the 24th of April and I wanted to share a 'How to make' with you all. Some years ago I put together two matchboxes and made a bizarre panoramic double image mash up cam which allows you to overlap, multi expose or juxtapose different images together. If you embrace a challenge and love the unexpected, then this is the cam for you.

    Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Somewhere Romantic to Cuddle Up!

    The Globe Theatre is a wonder, a vision on the South bank of the Thames, founded by actor/director Sam Wanamaker. It is a playhouse out of time but very much needed in our time. Dedicated to showing performances of Shakespeare, it is a theatre of international importance not just for its historical reconstruction. It's also a wonderful place to get romantic in a balcony!

    La ciudad de Londres es frenética, así que para aquellos que necesitamos pasar algún tiempo con nuestros pensamientos sin tener que ponernos tapones para los oídos, el río es el mejor lugar que tenemos. El Támesis, a pesar de lo que digan algunos, está bastante limpio e incluso tiene algunos lugares pequeños y tranquilos en su ribera a los que la gente puede retirarse.

    Greenwich Once A Royal Abode

    Greenwich in South London is bestowed with the important title of Royal, not many towns in the U.K. can claim this privilege. Architecturally it is very important and has many beautiful if not grand, buildings to see. Always busy, it is full of interest both for its views, park, architecture, and its markets. It is of course, known for the fact that it is on the Meridian and that is why we have Greenwich Mean Time!

    London is a frenetic city, so for those of us that need to seek out a little time with our thoughts and not have to wear headphones then the place to be is down by the river. The Thames, despite what people may think is actually quite clean now and it also has some wonderful quiet little places along its banks that a person in need can retreat to.

Estas últimas son muy divertidas, está claro, sobre todo en ciertas épocas del año... ¡si hay nieve!

    Amo questo parco, è così grande che puoi passare un'intera giornata a esplorare i suoi angoli, infatti non credo di aver scoperto tutti questi scorci nascosti, ci sono tantissime aree appartate, giardini recintati, alberi secolari e molte pendenze scoscese da cui rotolare. È sicuramente divertente in certi periodi dell'anno, se mai ci sarà la neve di nuovo!!
