Mountnessing Goes Dutch

Taken by Caz on Friday, 25th March 1994

Location: Mountnessing Windmill, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 600 / Sigma 21-35mm EF
Film: Kodak Gold 200
Notes: The colourful flowers attracted my attention at the local village green in Mountnessing. Choosing a wide angle lens and getting down low emphasised the blooms and kept the windmill as a more distant object. The whole scene did seem rather Dutch to me! Not long after this was taken, the flower bed was bricked over to form a lasting memorial to a local who had died – which is a pity, because you will never be able to see such a colourful display there again.

Blue Luzzu

Taken by Caz on Wednesday, 3rd February 1993

Blue Luzzu Title: Blue Luzzu
Location: Marsaxlokk Bay, Malta
Camera: Canon EOS 650 / Sigma 21-35mm EF
Film: Kodak Elite 100
Notes: The beautifully painted bows of these traditional Maltese fishing boats are normally in the water, but this one was sitting on the harbour side for the winter. This enabled me to show a low viewpoint and have the boat placed against an almost identical blue of the sky.
