me: ooh!

Regents Park, winter & spring

It was sunny and breezy last Tuesday afternoon, so I walked to Regents Park and took a bunch of pictures with my digital. For contrast, I've posted some Lomo photos from a roll that I'd forgotten about. I took them in early January. It was cold enough that I had to stash my camera in my sleeve in order to advance the film - the Lomo is completely mechanical.

Marco and I went to Warwick Castle, which is kind of like the English version of Disneyland, yesterday, and I took many pictures. As with Disneyland, I'm glad I went once but I probably wouldn't go back except to attend one of their feasts in costume. It seems to be largely a destination for English families on holiday, although the Americans we saw were making their presences known. Why must the least desirable examples of a culture always be its loudest representatives?
