Wrought-iron Olympic torch figure, in front of Winchester Cathedral

Wrought-iron Olympic torch figure, in front of Winchester Cathedral

In 1519 Winchester was chosen as the capital of the kingdom of Wessex. In 827, Egbert the first king of all England was crowned here. It then remained the capital and the most important city in England until the 11th century and the arrival of William the Conqueror. William had himself crowned in both London and Winchester, and declared both cities to be capitals. However, by the 14th century Winchester had lost its place as the second most important city and began to evolve into what it is today: a small, sleepy, provincial town - but still an amazing location for photographers! P.S. If you haven't tried Ilford XP2 yet, you really should. It's black & white, but designed to be developed using standard C-41 colour processing - which means your local high-street store can process it in 1 hour. Instant gratification guaranteed! ;-)
