Self Portraits in The New Forest

This weekend Viveca and I went to The New Forest for a weekend out of town. Amongst other things I was looking forward to doing some flash photography in the woods. We didn't managed to achieve what I set out to - that will have to wait until another time. I did however [...]

What with it being a Bank Holiday here Viveca and I decided that it would be a nice idea to go out and do something non urbex and touristy in the countryside. no creeping around trying to be quiet or having to worry abut security catching us. We had two choices - Hever Castle or [...]

Mental: A History of the Madhouse
