London & Brugge

I’ve lost count of what day it is – too much travelling and no proper routine does that to you.

We’re in Berlin at the moment. The serviced apartment we’re staying in is nice, a welcome change from the cramped B&Bs we’ve been in the last two weeks. The suburb however, looks like something straight out of Communist USSR. Gray, utilitarian facades with rectangular windows seven stories high looking over the street. Walls covered in graffiti line the ground floors of these buildings. Even the heavy, two-inch thick wooden doors serving as our apartment entrance is not spared.

We took the night train from Amsterdam to Berlin, and it was an experience. Imagine sharing a room about 2m x 2m with my wife, not to mention another couple. 4 people in total. We were a wreck by the time we reached Berlin. I didn’t envy the American backpackers sharing the 6 bunk booths.

Anyway, enough from me. You wanted to see pictures and here they are – London and Brugge in all their glory. Enjoy.

Everyone was taking a photo of Parliament House. The irony was a group of protesters has been camping out on the opposite street since 2001.

The Portobello Markets – this was where I picked up my Lomo Lubitel.

Antique magnifying glasses? I didn’t know there was a market for these.

This was one of the oldest looking stations in London – Baker Street. Nobody uses bricks to make train stations anymore.

Two from our B&B in Brugge. Kelloggs in a tin. Now THAT is old-school.

Everyone cycles in Brugge – and nobody obeys the traffic rules. The town square where this was taken is shared by pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles, cars, dogs, trams, all weaving around each other. I’m amazed I didn’t see anyone get run over while we were there.

A scooter with training wheels – now I’ve seen everything.

Its completely manual, shutter speed from 1/250 to Bulb, F4.5-22, with a 75mm manual focus lens. It doesn’t even have a meter so I’ve been using my Nikon to do all the metering before I take a shot. I’ve loaded it with Fuji Pro 400H film and finished a roll of 12 shots already. I’ll upload samples in the next post.
