here’s one I made earlier :: an explorer of southwold

In dire need of a bit of R&R, some inspiration and a birthday treat, the boy and I headed off to lovely Southwold for a weekend break. For a change of creative tact we went armed with “How to be an explorer of the world” by Kerri Smith and no less than four different cameras – a Fuji Instax, a digital camera each and the Diana Mini.

These are the best of our Fuji Instax shots. To get ourselves in full explorer mode and to avoid the usual seaside photographic cliches, we set nine photographic themes. Here are the best shots from each theme…
